"SETTE A TEBE / ALL'OMBRA DELLE AQUILE" by Savina are two wonderful scores I've picked up from Screen Archives and really come to appreciate. Both have a very Rozsa-like feel (a la BEN-HUR). I remember the first film as a fun-filled colorful peplum which I saw years ago as SEVEN FOR THEBES. Check out the samples and see if you like it, too. The CD is still in stock as of this post.

Thanks for your input, Mr. Lachmann.

This Digitmovies 2-CD album of Savina-scored peplum arrived into my collection recently, and I love both of them.

I love Rozsa. I love most of the peplum releases, including those by Savina. The two composers are nothing alike, but it's extremely possible for somebody to love both of them.

I'm exploring Carlo Savina, so far I only have one, 1001 Nights on Verita Note. I would appreciate a list of works to provide a rough overview of Savina.

Hi, ajhfsm.

This should be a very welcome album:

L'UOMO CHE RIDE




It's got a suite of unused Piccioni, too!


That will be in my future. Astonishing a Piccioni rejected for a Savina, Hollywood style.


That didn't go well for me regarding Savina. However I do get excited about Savina's music. His Peplum work seems to rival Piccioni's, as well as his Westerns. IN THE SHADOW OF EAGLES/HEY AMIGO, YOU'RE DEAD.

However many albums from Savina have arrived since then. I ordered PIZZA a while back, Sicilian tastes good.

Savina's music doesn't remind me of Rozsa.

I see that I did some "homework" by trying to explore one of his scores a year ago (above). Was hoping somebody would comment further. Unfortunately that clip seems to be no longer accessible.

Yeah, initially I liked L'UOMO CHE RIDE and thought a disc of both Savina & Piccioni is something that should not be overlooked.
Unfortunately, this album does not show off either composer at their best.

In my recent quest to acquire more Savina, I think the peplum scores are most satisfying.
ALL'OMBRE DELLE AQUILE is currently my 5th Savina fave (with his '63 URSUS being my 2nd fave).

Sure, Savina is different than Rozsa, but I am very interested if collectors of Golden Age also collect Italian discs.

Haven't gotten that soundtrack, yet, rozsaphile, but I hope to in the near future! smile
