Musica, Cinema, Teatro
Musica, Cinema, Teatro is a parade of pieces based on the tunes that have made the finest scenes in the history of the cinema truly unforgettable.
The programme aims to celebrate the masterly musicianship of a number of Italian composers of film scores, including Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone and Nicola Piovani, whose works have helped to establish the world-class status of Italian cinema and music.
There is also a homage to Leonard Bernstein, who has often given the saxophone a leading role in his soundtracks.
It is an easy-listening repertoire that will convey the listener into the magical world of cinema classics, aided by the vitality and irresistible musicality of the Saxofollia quartet.
