Nino ROTA (1911-1979)
Suite from the Ballet La Strada

Nino Rota never made any distinction between his concert music and his music for films. Each was of equal importance and, to his mind, deserved equal dedication. This valuable album shows an inter-relationship between the two genres. Rota’s music for Fellini’s film La Strada (1954) became the source for the music for the 1966 ballet of the same name and music from Rota’s Sinfonia sopra una canzone d’amore (Symphony on a love song) were used in two films: The Legend of the Glass Mountain (1949) and Il Gattopardo (The Leopard) (1962).
