The breathtaking, Oscar-nominated score from composer Henry Mancini, Sunflower. At the time he was asked to score Sunflower, Henry Mancini (1924-1994) was a legend in his field. His unforgettable melodies for director Blake Edwards, in particular, had brought him internacional renown. The composer was specially sought after by De Sica and PontiÑwho agreed on little but that Mancini was the perfect choice for their film. Mancini fully justified their confidence by producing one of his most beautiful and dramatic scores.Although Sunflower was a very famous score and the LP released at this date was an incredible success (having been reissued several times on CD, though always in Japan), this is the premiere release of the complete score, including every note written by Mancini for the film (even several cues that ultimately were not included in the final cut of the film). For this definitive presentation we have included the complete score on disc one, carefully mastered by Claudio Fuiano from the first generation mono tapes -the film was mixed in mono- recently found in Italy. On disc two we have included the remastered album version in full stereo, from its original sources courtesy of Studio Canal. The package includes a 20-page full color booklet with liner notes and track-by-track analysis by film music specialist John Takis.
