We proudly present on this CD the world premiere re-lease of Carlo Rustichelis’ score for 1958 movie “L’uomo dai calzoni corti” which was directed by Glauco Pellegrini and sta-rred the 10-year-old Edoardo Nevola as well as Alida Valli, Francisco rabal, Eduardo De Filippe and Memmo Carotenuto, each of them lending their own distinct personality to the various episodes of the film.
“L’uomo dai calzoni corti” is a quite lovely and touching small picture , half melodrama, half road mo-vie, with echoes of the classic Italian childhood story of Edmondo De Amicis’ late 19th century novel “Cuore” entitled “From the Appenines to the Andes”. Carlo Rustichelli who literally scored hundreds of films during his long and illustrious career was one of the most versatile and distinguished Italian film composers firmly rooted in the operatic as well as the fol-kloristic tradition of his country. His music always sounded characteristically Italian, he had an inimitable lyrical symphonic style and an inmense melodic gift.
This is deeply compelling, highly emotinal music with which the composer lets us feel his enormous em-pathy for the characters as well as the tragic implications and tur- moils in which they get involved. Quite a lot of these agonizing moments with impas- sioned outbursts of the full string section can be heard in this score and they all show Rustichelli at the peak of his craft.
Rustichelli has written a wonderfully sensitive and romantic score for this rather un- known movie which contains all the typical imprints of his symphonic style and is a pure delight to listen to on its own. May our CD contribute to rediscovery of this melodic gem by one of the most gifted composers of the Italian cine-ma. Besides the regular score program this CD also contains some source music in the bonus track section and closes with a suite of alternate takes of the score tracks.
