The other, still unresolved mystery is, whether any of the Dinosaurs scores were conducted by Ferrara. As you remember, another GDI CD claims exactly this in its booklet. I'm still holding out to get a definitive answer for that question. But based on all I've learned so far, Ferrara most likely didn't conduct any of these. If he really did, it would be a great surprise.


On the legend triple score cd it just credits Mario.

I forgot to ask if any other conductor's credit ist listed on that 3-LP set?


No, there are no other conductor´s credits listed on the Nascimbene 3 LP set (besides the Franco Ferrara ones for side B of the third LP).

[Edit: 09/16/22]
This is probably the third or fourth edit of my post due to those questionable Spaghetti Western and Hammer film music credits...


Franco Ferrara Dirige I Grandi Classici Della Musica Da Film – 6° Parte
(Franco Ferrara Conducts the Great Classics of Fim Music - Part 6)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU9BLh7qHSw&list=PLdl1y1w4PGIoBpnM8X-pAt0Y2bwgLZ2td


This final Ferrara playlist contains 108 tracks from 9 films:

- Buffalo Bill, l'eroe del far west (Rustichelli)
- Maciste alla corte dello zar (Rustichelli)
- I lunghi capelli della morte (Rustichelli)
- El Greco (Morricone)
- The Bible: In the Beginning… (Mayuzumi)
- Quella sporca storia nel west (De Masi)
- Dos hombres van a morir (De Masi)*
- 7 Winchester per un massacro (De Masi)**
- Il segreto del Sahara (Morricone) - feat. music from the unused demo score for "The Bible: In the Beginning..." (1966)


* According to Roberto Liso's Ferrara book, Franco Ferrara didn't conduct the score of "Ringo, il cavaliere solitario" at all. He did, however, compose additional music.

** Music ghost written by Franco Ferrara (uncredited), specific tracks actually composed by Ferrara unknown



Ferrara is also credited with conducting De Masi's score to the 1967 western "Sette pistole per un massacro".

He may have composed additional music for "Ringo, il cavaliere solitario", but as far as I can tell from watching that movie the additional music is culled from De Masi's earlier western 15 forche per un assasino.

Ferrara's credit for "Ringo il cavaliere solitario" (OT: "Dos hombres van a morir") as co-composer is verified. He is also seperately registered as composer on SIAE (Ferrara ISWC T-005.647.127-2 / De Masi ISWC T-005.646.822-4).

Currently also discussed here: https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=148554

"7 pistole per un massacro" is the only Spaghetti Western where Ferrara received on-screen conductor's credit. The score has not been officially released.

Two other great scores conducted by Franco Ferrara are "I patriarchi" and "Giacobbe l'uomo che lottò con Dio" (1963).


The music for the sequence "Journey to the Promised Land"




The music was composed by Gino Marinuzzi, jr. and Teo Usuelli. For some tracks, both men share co-composers credit and a couple of others not. Who really composed what music is often not really that clear.

The convoluted story surrounding these two scores has been discussed a little in this Teo Usuelli thread:

The song "Intorno a te è sempre primavera" was written by Maurizio De Angelis (music) and Dario Bernazza (lyrics). Interestingly, Franco Ferrara along with Aldo Piga also had their hands in the composition of this number according to SIAE's repertory.


Tonina Torrielli's version (San Remo, 1957)




The Claudio Venturelli version
