Quartet Record Announces

THE FIFTH CORD (2CD)
Expanded Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by ENNIO MORRICONE


Quartet Records, in collaboration with Carosello Edizioni Musicali, presents a definitive, expanded 2-CD edition of Ennio Morricone’s celebrated score for a 1971 Italian thriller, GIORNATA NERA PER L’ARIETE (aka THE FIFTH CORD), directed by Luigi Bazzoni and starring Franco Nero, Silvia Monti, Ira Von Fürstenbergm Edmund Purdon, Pamela Tiffin and Agostina Belli.

Morricone’s thriller scores remain some of his most distinctive and original works. As demonstrated in his scores for Dario Argento’s efforts in the genre, Morricone’s uncanny ability to combine lyricism, unbridled avant-garde experimentation and stylish elegance was his most significant contribution to the category. GIORNATA NERA PER L’ARIETE shows Morricone once again embracing the sophisticated avant-garde sound while beginning his score with a haunting tune performed by Edda Dell’Orso heard over the film’s main titles. The lullaby-like theme has a timeless quality, providing a disturbing and disarming melody for the film.

As with many of his giallos, Ennio Morricone’s score for GIORNATA NERA PER L’ARIETE was never released on an album (only the main theme was included in the Morricone compilation album COLORI in 1971). In 1996, under the composer’s supervision, the Point label released the first official album of the score. In 2001, Dagored expanded the program to 10 minutes, and it was expanded again for release in Japan in 2007 on the Verita Note label. But despite these expansions, there was still a large amount of music recorded by Morricone that remained unreleased. For this new Quartet edition, the score has been fully restored, remixed and edited by Daniel Winkler from the original tapes of the recording session, presenting the complete score as Morricone conceived it on disc 1. Disc 2 contains the original remastered album prepared by Morricone in 1996, as well as several alternates.

This CD has been mastered by Chris Malone, supervised by Claudio Fuiano, and includes a 20-page booklet with in-depth liner notes by film music writer Jeff Bond.

It has some very decent Edda on this score.
Her la la stuff is in similar vein to another of ennio's horror/thriller classics, but I can't think which one atm.

Looks interesting. Not the easiest listen, overall. It's been a while, so I'll may flick through it.

I'll have to admit I had no idea what was "THE FIFTH CORD" as I did not know the English name.

There is 75 minutes of music that was previously available. I guess there are a few inedits but it will take time to check it all.

Great news for me because I stuck so far at the Point Records CD gathering this score with GLI OCCHI FREDDI DELLA PAURA. Coincidentally, I just upgraded OCCHI (a CD ideal to party, isn’t it ?!) and therefore will take this last version of GIORNATA.

I can probably understand why, but it is, along with OCCHI, so weird and peculiar that I like it very much!

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, perhaps.

I never bought any expanded of this. Just have the twofer ( with Occhio). So I'll probably fill an order with this.

Does it mean that the 45' or so selection of GIORNATA NERA was a good way to 'swallow the pill' of GLI OCCHI ?

Yep, that's it ! Well done. It's a wispier, floating version of that.

But despite these expansions, there was still a large amount of music recorded by Morricone that remained unreleased.

I wonder? I do think it will sound crisper than crispy crackers after this remastering.

I agree. I wish the labels would release more of his melodic, lyrical scores. (La Venexiana, anybody?...)

On the other hand I'm glad that new (remastered, expanded) Morricone scores come almost at a monthly basis.

Is there much missing from the score on the 15 track GDM online/CD release?. I'm less familiar with this one.

La Tarantola Dal Ventre Nero could be next.

Digits release was around 60 mins. So is there much more unreleased, or just a reissue.

La Tarantola Dal Ventre Nero could be next.

Stefan would answer this much better than me but I'm afraid he would object against this choice because this score belongs to the CAM catalogue, wouldn't he ?

Correct, Laurent. LA TARANTOLA DAL VENTRE NERO will certainly not be re-released by Quartet during the next few months. Much more likely are titles from the General Music, Cinevox or RCA catalogues like for example LE FOTO PROIBITE DI UNA SIGNORA PER BENE, LA CORTA NOTTE DELLE BAMBOLE DI VETRO, IL DIAVOLO NEL CERVELLO or L´ATTENTATO.
