BEAT's Il Bacio seems to have the violins on the right channel and the cellos and brass on the left. Could this be the wrong way around?

I haven't notice this, myself.

Whenever I play IL BACIO again I'll listen out for that.

If what you say is so, then - yeah- I expect it's a mastering issue.

By the way, where's Ken G?

Ken G must have overloaded on Piccioni.

Today I received this :

Today I received this :



Wow! That's great you were able to get this 1995 Beat CD of UNA TOMBA APERTA ... UNA BARA VUOTA.

I'm sure you realize that the first 12 tracks on this album are not from a score by Piccioni.
Don't know how much more music Piero wrote for this item, but this is one of those titles mentioned for a possible expansion from Beat.

Hope that ajhfsm will be mesmerized by this Piccioni fave of mine!

If you can ever acquire a copy of IL FARO IN CAPO AL MONDO, then you'd have all of my Top 10 Piccioni. smile

Possibly two Piccioni titles in the next round?

Or no title at all?
It seems that for October we will only get Fidenco, Patucchi and Umiliani from Beat, but still not NIENTE ROSE PER OSS 117:

Well I have to be grateful with what we did get ... but it's disappointing nonetheless.

Yes, a bit disappointed since I was waiting for this one, and I don't like so much the next batch, but still, I don't think there is a deadline to release the Piccioni albums; they might as well do it in the next two years.

NIENTE ROSE PER OSS 117 announced at SAE for pre-order! Apparently a new chapter in Piccioni is opening at Beat.

There is the cover of the next release in NIENTE ROSE and I'm really happy! I hope they stay in 1969 for a while.

So will the next release be LE ALTRE or GIOVINEZZA, GIOVINEZZA?

Le Altre

Did Piccioni choose the films he scored or was it more a matter of survival? I wonder.

Did Piccioni choose the films he scored or was it more a matter of survival? I wonder.

Certainly not a matter of survival at the time of the late 60s or early 70s. Piccioni worked very closely with some directors like Rosi or Sordi for a long time because they were his friends, and therefore he composed the music for almost everything they made. But he was asked to do many pictures by other directors and producers at that time, some of which he even had to refuse because he had no time or simply did not like the movie or the script beforehand. He also liked the variety of movies and the variety of music.
Matters did change however enormously during the early 80s with the crisis of the Italian cinema when there was only a restricted budget for the music anymore - directors and producers didn't want to pay for an orchestra anymore - and a new generation of filmmakers came up which had their own group of younger composers. So this was the reason why Piccioni scored fewer and fewer movies during the 80s. It was not his own choice to score fewer pictures at that time.

Thanks Stefan. I think Le Altre comes under the variety category, maybe like Appasionata or Camille 2000?

I do not yet know the complete music of LE ALTRE, because it is a rather obscure movie, but I would say yes to your question.

Hey - LE ALTRE is posted @ Soundtrack Collector and @ SAE.

LE ALTRE is a 2-CD set!



So far, Josh Mitchell hasn't made a "Coming Soon" thread on Beat's 4 albums for December 2013, so I'm posting an image of LE ALTRE above.

Whaddayasay, wayoutwest? big grin

This is exciting news as any new Piccioni is to me now.

2-CD set sounds like a huge affair is on the way. The usual announcements weren't on the BEAT sites either!

All I can say is Hurrah! for Piccioni and I hope it survives until I can order again.

I think there is very little chance to view Le Altre, unless you have Italian cable.

I also enjoy a bit of lesbian drama, like Chabrol's rewarding Les Biches or that other one, Check To The Queen. smile

There is a you tube clip of the first 10 minutes of Le Altre, where you can hear quite a lot of Piccioni's score - style wise it sounds close to his scores for Colpo Rovente or Camille 2000.

I think I may have included the link for that clip in a previous post in this thread - I will try to find it & drag it back to the front(or is it the back?) of this thread.

In any case, it sounds like a great score.

Now that the year is coming to an end, I'm curious to see if Beat will be releasing more Piccioni scores in 2014.......
