A great surprise to see the world premiere release of Nino Rota's IL FURTO DELLA GIOCONDA TV score from 1978 on GDM/Intermezzo. It also comes from the CAM catalogue and was never before released on LP or CD: http://www.intermezzomedia.com/
"Nino Rota has composed a main theme of delicate Renaissance flavor (historical period very dear to the musician, just thinking of his memorable scores for THE TAMING OF THE SHREW and ROMEO AND JULIET), inspired by the enigmatic beauty of the Mona Lisa, which the author reprises with orchestral variations alternating with folk music performed by blipped piano, accordion and trumpet. Only the END TITLES were included in a 3 CD box released in 2009 by GDM Music, dedicated to the thirtieth anniversary of the death of the famous composer. GDM Music is now proud to publish for the first time ever and in its complete edition this OST, conducted by Carlo Savina. This release on CD, duration 40:22, contains every note recorded at the time and well preserved on the stereo master tapes of the original session."
