Quartet Records presents the new score by Maestro Pino Donaggio (Don’t Look Now, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Passion, Patrick) for the latest film by Paolo Franchi (E la chiamano Estate). The film is an introspective drama—starring Emmanuelle Devos and Fabrizio Gifuni—about the emotional conflicts of a middle-aged couple.
Pino Donaggio has written a delicate, emotional, sad but romantic score, which is among his best efforts for any romantic drama. The composer develops an immediately recognizable melody; the orchestration favors strings and piano.
The Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra perform the score under the baton of Gianluca Podio. The intensity of the drama is captured perfectly in one of the most romantic scores of the year, written by one of the most indispensable melodists in film music history.
