In November 2013 on the anniversary of the founding of KRONOS RECORDS we will launch THE GOLD COLLECTION. For this series will focus on titles from the Golden and Silver Age of Cinema; both European and Foreign.
To start the collection we picked a long sought for title by many fans and collectors of classic Italian soundtracks : SALADINO (AL NASSER SALAH ED DIN) composed by none less than the King of the Italian Golden Age MAESTRO ANGELO FRANCESCO LAVAGNINO. The film was directed by Youssef Chahine's and starring Ahmed Nazar, Nadia Lutfi and the best of the best of Egyptian Cinema. MAESTRO CARLO SAVINA conducts The Cairo Symphony Orchestra and Choir in one of the most epic film soundtracks ever made. For the first time ever on CD format the score to this grand epic score by Maestro Lavagnino and featuring almost 50 minutes of previously unreleased music. The CD runs for over 79 minutes and is strictly limited to 500 copies.
The second title in this series is another world premiere. For the first time ever on CD and in its complete form MICHELE LACERENZA (of A Fistful For Dollarsfame) 's score for León Klimovsky's war film QUEL MALEDETTO PONTE SULL’ELBA. The music is very dramatic with plenty of military marches and a main theme for trumpet that is among Lacerenza's top performances ever. MAESTRO ROBERTO PREGADIO conducts his Orchestra on this brilliant, very dynamic war film score! Features the legendary FRANCO De GEMINI on harmonica. This soundtrack was previously released on vinyl in 1969 and ran for a length of 16 minutes. The CD contains the complete soundtrack in film order and runs for 56 minutes.
