Le Altre - 08/10 - Review of John Mansell, submitted at
Maestro Piero Piccioni, was one of the great composers who were active in Italy during the 1950,s through to the nineties, his scores were varied and also inventive but as we all probably know he did lean towards the jazz elements when it came to any film score which included his Italian western soundtracks. LE ALTRE is a delightful work and I am so pleased that BEAT records have seen fit to release the full soundtrack on a double compact disc set. The music is light airy and melodic, the composer takes us on a musical journey through pop orientated cues, light and laid back easy listening compositions and also jazz influenced passages that are tuneful and haunting. Piccioni makes excellent use of piano, harpsichord and also choir with the emphasise also on solo female voice in certain cues. The score is a simple but effective one and is easy on the ear, Piccioni creating beautifully melodious pieces that glide and amble along evoking the sound of the late 1960,s steamy saxophone, cool sounding organ, strummed guitar and stroked percussion combine and compliment each other along the way all punctuated and supported by double bass. Plus we have the odd shake track that slips in here and there creating something of a stir in a nice way. This is a score that you should own, presented well by BEAT records with great sound quality and informative notes by Andrea Morandi of CIAK magazine with technical notes written by Claudio Fuiano. Another must have for Italian film music enthusiasts.
The sixth release in the series dedicated to the wonderful music composed for cinema by the late Maestro Piero Piccioni, LE ALTRE is a movie from 1969 that finds two wonderful actresses, Erna Schurer and Monica Strebel, performing in a dramatic movie with a lesbian theme. Maestro Piccioni composed one of his most iconic scores for the genre, orchestral and endowed with great variety, efficiently combining quality with quantity. In fact, thanks to the plentiful amount of available material, we decided to release a double CD. A score long awaited by Piccioni fans is now available in its entirety, with more than 121 minutes of music to satisfy the expectations of all of those who have waited many years for this release.

Presented in a 2-CD jewel case with a 12-page booklet featuring liner notes (in Italian and English) by Claudio Fuiano and Andrea Morandi (CIAK magazine), graphic layout by Alessio Iannuzzi and audio mastering by Claudio Fuiano. Limited edition of 500 copies!
