Kronos Records is proud to present for the first time ever on CD two musical gems from the late Maestro Piero Piccioni; TEMPTATION (1968) and LA FIGLIA DEL CAPITANO (1965).
The music on TEMPTATION is beautiful, chilled and sensual. The ensemble plays a lovely blend of jazz and lounge with hints of bossa that make this a very recognizable Piccioni work, an easy listening, chill score for the 1968 film directed by Lamberto Benvenuti and starring Mark Damon and Stefania Careddu.
LA FIGLIA DEL CAPITANO (The Captain’s Daughter) was a TV adaptation of Puskin’s “Kapitanskaya Dochka”, directed by Leonardo Cortese and starring Amedeo Nazzari, Umberto Orsini and Lucilla Morlacchi shows us a more dramatic facade to Piccioni’s ample composing skills. This score for orchestra is solemn, romantic and very evocative of the high period of classic Italian drama.
