Music By Ennio Morricone

Limited 500 Copies

Quartet Records presents a new, remastered edition of two Ennio Morricone scores from 1969/1970, written for movies featuring strong female protagonists.

Made a year later, Alberto Bevilacqua’s La califfa (1970) stars Romy Schneider and Ugo Tognazzi in a forbidden romance with a more contemporary setting. Based on the director’s own novel, the story follows the romance of an industrialist and the widow of a worker who used to work in his factory. As the affair slowly transforms the ruthless capitalist, his own kind decides it’s time to step in and abort his reforms before it’s too late. Morricone’s thematically rich score features his favorite musical collaborators (Edda dell’Orso, Alessandro Alessandroni and I Cantori Moderni) for an emotional rollercoaster that’s much better-known than the film it’s attached to.

The program for La monaca di Monza, probably one of the shortest scores composed by Morricone, expands by seven minutes (including a beautiful choral piece) the previous release by Point Records, issued in the early nineties and now hard-to-find. The program for La califfa is the same as the expensive and now out-of-print Japanese import CD by Verita Note, but with a new mastering by Claudio Fuiano and D√°niel Winkler which eliminates some drop-outs and corrects the switched stereo channels from previous editions.

The 20-page full-color booklet features many illustrations and a detailed discussion of both scores by Gergely Hubai, who also provides trackby- track analyses for these masterful works.
