Donaggio had been scoring films for over a decade, starting with Nicholas RoegÕs DonÕt Look Now (1973), and continuing with his work for Brian De Palma (Carrie, Dressed To Kill, Body Double, Blow Out and others) as well as cult classics like Tourist Trap, The Howling, Piranha, Tex, Hercules, as well as providing quite a few scores for Cannon Films, of whichThe Berlin Affair was one. The score for The Berlin Affair is Donaggio at the top of his game. With its sinuous, swirling, hypnotic melodies capturing all the underlying complexities of the characters and the story, the music is like a symphonic fever dream in the film, and a wonderful and completely satisfying listening experience away from the film. In fact, the music is mixed quite low in the film, and many cues are truncated, so itÕs especially lovely to hear them complete and in gorgeous sound. The themes are some of the most beautiful Donaggio has ever written. The CD was mastered from the original Italian two-track mixed score tapes housed in the MGM vaults Ð they were in pristine condition and the recording is absolutely stunning. The CD runs just about an hour and contains about eighteen minutes of never before released score cues.SOLD OUT!
