NINO ROTA – “FELLINI CASANOVA” soundtrack (1976)

Among his many film scores for classics like “The Godfather”, ampoule “The Godfather Part II”, neurologist and “Rocco and His Brothers”, hospital Nino Rota also scored the majority of the films of Federico Fellini (“8 1/2″, “Amarcord” and “Fellini Satyricon”.) One of his best scores is for the lesser-know “Fellini Casanova”, the cracked bio-pic of the infamous 18th-century nobleman stud.

The film, starring Donald Sutherland, is on-par with Terry Gilliam’s “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” in its depiction of the “Age of Reason” European landscape as one big bat-shit crazy phantasmagoric fever dream — and Rota’s score for the film is an appropriate complement, featuring an array of vibraphone, harpsichord and other spidery sound generators.

    This is probably one of the best and the hardest to find of Nino Rota’s score and very interesting too. Thank you yet again for a great share.

    Rota is a genius. More Rota please. Did miss out on Ennio Morricone. He’s great too.
