Pino Donaggio returns to the genre where everyone loves his music: a supernatural thriller!
This new, haunting and scary score (performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gianluca Podio) was composed by Pino Donaggio for the remake of the 1978 classic Australian horror movie: Patrick.
Quartet Records is proud to present Patrick, the maestro’s latest addition to his library of classic horror scores, one that’s capable of representing the full range of emotions felt by the characters without the film—but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see the film if you get the chance to do so! The package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Gergely Hubai, who discusses the movie, the composer and the score.
Mac And Me
Quartet Records and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer are proud to present the world  premiere of one of Alan Silvestri’s major symphonic works—an album long overdue for release.
1988’s Mac And Me paid hapless homage to a certain 1982 blockbuster about the adventures of an adorable, earth-bound alien and his young human friend. An element of Mac and Me that stood out for being legitimately good was its wonderful score by Alan Silvestri. The exciting symphonic score, conducted by the composer, is an orchestral tour-de-force which brings us back to the glorious sound of American adventure films in the ’80s. The CD contains the complete score, mastered both from stereo sources courtesy of MGM and the composer’s personal tapes.
La Ragazza Dal Pigiama Giallo
Premiere CD release of long-awaited giallo score composed by Riz Ortolani. La Ragazza Dal Pigiama Giallo (aka The Pyjama Girl Case) is a somewhat forgotten Spanish-Italian giallo. The story is based on an actual crime that happened in Australia: a young girl was found killed on the beach with her face completely disfigured, dressed only in yellow pajamas. The music composed by Riz Ortolani moves between two different styles: the composer’s characteristic suspense-film sound, including a wonderful love theme with the harmonica of Franco Di Gemini, and the cool disco sound of the seventies (with two original songs co-composed and performed by Amanda Lear). Mastered by Claudio Fuiano, the CD contains the original previously released Cinevox LP program plus five bonus tracks. The package includes an 8-page booklet containing mosaic stills from the film, accompanied by an essay from Óscar Salas, who discusses the movie, the composer and the score.
