World premiere CD release of complete Pino Donaggio
score for thriller with supernatural setting, directed by Anthony Richmond, starring Jaclyn Smith, Shelley Winters, Claire Bloom. Donaggio opens with classical-style overture for ballet setpieces, then introduces gorgeous main theme that plays to varying time frames of story. Romantic feel is soon slashed apart, splattered with horror via signature string, brass jabs as murder & thriller aspects of tale take command. Music reminds listeners of composer's classic debut with DON'T LOOK NOW. Nods to Brian De Palma horror thrillers abound as well. Intrada presents complete score in stereo from 1/4' 15 ips two-track session mixes stored in perfect condition in MGM vaults. Tim Greiving adds insghts to film, score in booklet liner notes. Recorded in Italy, Natale Massara conducts.
