Film music for the Biennale Cinema in Venice

An orchestra of fifty elements, four soloists, some of the most famous and celebrated soundtracks in the history of cinema, images that flow together with the music. All this, in Venice. If it is already magical in its own right, in the days of the Biennale Cinema it takes on a special aura.

Among the private events connected to the 79th Venice Film Festival, there was no shortage of music, in great style. And it could only be film music: from the elegance of Rota to the power of Williams, from the regretful Morricone to the unforgettable Mancini, passing through Piovani, Silvestri, Badelt, Zimmer, Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman.

Surprise opening of the curtain, on the solo notes of La La Land by Hurwitz for the accordion by Davide Vendramin and grand finale with Rocky by Bill Conti, with the ARIA soloists to rage. In the middle, the orchestra whistling the Colonel Bogey march de The bridge over the river Kwai by Malcolm Arnold, the snap of the fingers on the legendary theme song of The Pink Panther and a thousand other numbers, thanks to the happy pen of Alfonso Martone, orchestrator of these pages .

Mind and direction of all this beauty, Martino Crespi, master of events. At his side a staff of professionals impossible to mention in its entirety. Certainly thanks to Francesco Bossaglia, principal conductor, and to Saul Beretta, creative director and organizational contact person, for having thought of me as substitute conductor. But thanks also to Eleonora Volpato, excellent inspector and stage director, and to Enrico Balboni for having accepted the invitation as first violin in this project: having him alongside was a joy and a satisfaction. Finally, thanks to Gabriele Basilico for the author’s shots.
