La Cieca Di Sorrento (also known as Revenge of the Black Knight is a 1963 cloak and dagger film directed by Nick Nostro and based on the novel of the same name by Francesco Mastriani. Masked knights fight the cruel Tyrant Amedeo, tutor of the beautiful, rich and blind orphan Isabella. The knights are led by a young doctor who in the end will defeat Isabella's evil oppressor, give her her sight and marry her.
The music for this adventurous romantic film is the work of none less than world reknown Maestro Carlo Savina; music director of films such as The Godfather (1972), Amarcord (1973), The Bear (1988) and close collaborator of various great composers of the 20th century such as Morricone, Trovajoli, Rota, Nascimbene, Myers, Sondheim, Sarde and none less than the legendary Miklós Rózsa. The works of the latter were a profound influence on many movements of the score you are now lsitening to. Carlo Savina was a true master tunesmith, an incredibly talented arranger and a meticulous conductor. This sweeping, gorgeous score makes its world debut in any format 51 years after its recording on KRONOS RECORDS' THE GOLD COLLECTION and courtesy of BEAT Records.
Our tenth title in The Gold Collection is a truly golden title by one if the most important and versatile composers Classical Film music has ever know. A must for all fans of CARLO SAVINA and the immortal music of the GOLDEN AGE!
