So it's been said Maesto Piccioni was a bitter sweet but he also did exquisite melancholy. I'll see this celebration out with Folco and Piero with Il Dio Sotto la Pelle. I've been gradually building up to the new Quartet initially with Fratello Mare, then several L'Italia Vista Dal Cielo regions and finally Islam these past days.

Thanks slint, also on YouTube for people region locked out of Quboz.

Today its I Fratelli karazovawhatever, anna karenina and bertolucci's grim reaper 1962.

That's a heavy day Bill.

I like Maestro Piccioni more than ever and I still have many discoveries to make.

And it is a great score, most similar to Le Altre (1969) and Niente rose per OSS 117 (1968). Actually Ménage à Trois is exactly the same melody as the one heard on Niente rose per OSS 117. I'm surprised no CD label picked this one in the last 20 years.

Addio alexandra is a nice score, gentle piano lounge jazz predominently, with a few organ and flute versions chucked in. Played yesterday actually.

One of the soundtrack labels had indeed reserved ADDIO ALEXANDRA in Sugar´s CAM catalogue already several years ago. But I don´t know what happened during the last few years and why they didn´t release it on CD. Either there were other titles which were more interesting to them or Sugar just closed the doors for this project in the same way they did it for several of Saimel´s projects which the label wasn´t allowed to produce and release on CD anymore, among them for example Piccioni´s PER QUESTA NOTTE.
I suppose that PER QUESTA NOTTE will now also be released only digitally by CAM/Sugar in the next few weeks as one track of the score can already be found on the "Modern Gentleman" compilation..

I've just seen this announcement on SoundtrackCollector :

https://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/121515/Piero+Piccioni+100+-+Greatest+Soundtracks+%26+Movie+Scores#83125

The artwork is made of a superb painting of the composer.

Piccioni release on the week. We've been lucky recently!

They've skipped Mondo di notte n. 2 and Mani in alto, if going in chronological order. Mondo di notte n. 2 was not originally a CAM LP so maybe it is more complicated to release that one?

I'm hoping for Il comune senso del pudore and Per questa notte in the next two weeks!

Sonor Music have also posted a few times about the soundtrack for I TARTASSATI. I'm not sure what are their plans, and if that will be some LP or online release.

I don´t think so. CAM/Sugar and no one else is the rights owner for MONDO DI NOTTE N. 2.
And as one track has already been on their "Modern Gentleman" compilation, they should have all the material for it.

Sonor Music have also posted a few times about the soundtrack for I TARTASSATI. I'm not sure what are their plans, and if that will be some LP or online release.

About two years ago Sonor Music had taken over the old Edizioni Firmamento catalogue - this was an Italian music publishing company which had originally been founded by composer Alessandro Derevitzky at the end of the 50s.
Probably during the mid or late 60s there were various library LPs on the Fonit label (they are so obscure that most of them can not even be found on Discogs!) with such titles as "Caratteristici", "Comici", "Ballabili", "Drammatici", "Epici", "Paesaggi", "Romantici" - there were 3, sometimes even 4 or 5 albums for each of these genres and they included a lot of tracks from scores of the late 50s and early 60s which almost all came from Edizioni Musicali Firmamento.
Piccioni´s I TARTASSATI was also among them and I could at least identify 4 tracks from TARTASSATI which were on a "Ballabili", a "Caratteristici" and a "Comici" LP mostly with fictitious track titles. There were quite a lot of film music tracks by Derevitzky on these library LPs (for example from his scores LE NOTTI DI LUCREZIA BORGIA, LA VENDETTA DI ERCOLE or SALAMBO), but also by many other composers - even famous ones like Lavagnino or Nascimbene.
The second Piccioni score besides I TARTASSATI that Firmamento had - and of which also a few tracks were on these rare library LPs - is ANNI RUGGENTI from 1962. This one should therefore now also be in Sonor Music´s hands if the tapes have survived.
I suppose that they will release one or both of those scores only digitally at some time in the future.
