From the Manufacturer

Expanded CD debut of Giorgio Gaslini jazz score written for Miklós Jancsó's politically charged film La pacifista (1970), starring Monica Vitti.

Giorgio Gaslini's score is essentially organized around one piano theme which is frequently repeated in the film to represent Barbara's love affair. The music however is much more versatile. The composer penned a number of rally songs that play an important role in the narrative, and a pair of nervous jazz-tension pieces (which unfortunately are barely heard in the film). The album also contains "Richiamo," a vintage Gaslini jazz tune that was largely left out in the final cut as well. Here you can hear the entire five-minute composition as well as rare alternate takes from the sessions. The CD contains more music than the film itself! The score was originally released on a brief LP by Cinevox that lasted 20 minutes.

Our CD debut of the score–fully mastered and restored by Claudio Fuiano–doubles the running length with great additional variations on both the jazz tunes and the romantic main theme. 12-page liner notes by Gergely Hubai discuss the film, the director, the scandals of the shooting and the score. All the notes are based on an original interview with the composer.
