Benedetto Lupo (piano), Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, Josep Pons
Rota: La Strada, Il gattopardo, Concert-Soirée
Nino Rota was unquestionably one of the greatest composers in the history of the cinema. Appropriately, this recording performed by Josep Pons and the Orquesta Ciudad de Granad includes music from his films La Strada and Il Gattopardo, but more facinating still is a "serious" work by Rota, the Concerto Soirée, played here by pianist Benedetto Lupo.
