Digitmovies, on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of composer Mario Nascimbene, is pleased to publish for the first time on double CD, complete and in full stereo the OST for the epic film The Mongols directed in 1961 by André De Toth.
Mario Nascimbene wrote one of the most impressive comments of his long and successful career, entrusted with the execution of a full symphony orchestra and choir under the expert direction of Franco Ferrara. At the time, Maestro Nascimbene selected material in stereo for a possible 33 turns (18 tracks with a duration of about 35 minutes) that never saw the light. For our double CD, we had access to the master tapes in full stereo original recording session, which allowed us to use every note recorded, with a total of 120 minutes.
To introduce of new and special oriental sounds, Nascimbene and Ferrara attended supermarkets trying for a certain period, in the departments dishes, all pots and pans with different shades (to the amazement of the housewives who did not understand what they were doing those two distinguished gentlemen, in an area strictly for housewives) that would be used as an instrument in the orchestra. The end result is quite charming and these pots, organically integrated, create a truly exotic atmosphere. The author alternates between a heroic main theme music from a violent battle, and romantic themes in court ballets. A must rescue from the musical art of the great Mario Nascimbene.
