We continue our classic CR (Collector Releases) series with this first-ever release of Carlo Savina
’s score for the Western movie I TRE DEL COLORADO (1965, CANDADIAN WILDERNESS), directed by Armando de Ossorio and starring George Martin
, Diana Lorys, Luis Martin and Santiago Rivero. The Italo-Western genre had just exploded, but some productions were still inspired by the Hollywood canon. For this production, we find ourselves on that trail with a distinctly spectacular film that tells a story involving Indians and kidnappings.
The score composed by M° Savina, a fine musician who has given so much to Italian cinema of the 20th century, is in line with the description above, exemplifying a style in which strings and spacious arrangements for full orchestra predominate. Surely a great rediscovery, it confirms once again how much this marvelous artist has contributed to the Eighth Art through his wonderful music.
The CD comes in a jewel case, with mastering by Enrico De Gemini, liner notes (in Italian and English) by Roger A. Fratter and a 12-page full-color booklet designed by Alessio Iannuzzi. A righteous addition to all collectors of Western scores, fans of the Maestro and film music aficionados around the world!
