Multifaceted Maestro Alessandro Alessandroni is a composer, conductor, and arranger. Among the various activities that he still performs to this day, he is also a mandolinist, guitarist, fisarmonicist, sitarist, whistler, and pianist. Most of all, he is a musician, highly renowned in international TV and cinema. The Maestro has composed and conducted over 50 film scores and documentaries, and has collaborated in the production of many songs, achieving great success. The activity of the Maestro seems restless, especially during the period in which director Sergio Leone was shooting one film after the other. His most famous movies include, A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, For a Few Dollars More, Once Upon a Time in the West, and A Fistful of Dynamite. The director gave Maestro Ennio Morricone the opportunity to compose the scores for these movies, and in the recording sessions, a very special trio was formed that soon after became very famous: Alessandro Alessandroni as whistler and guitarist, Franco De Gemini on harmonica, and Edda Dell’Orso’s vocals, the three alternating their performances as soloists and members of the orchestra. Very successful in the pop music field, Maestro Alessandroni is the founder of the Cantori Moderni choir. He still performs publicly as well as on radio and TV throughout Europe, and has been commended for his professionalism and originality all over the world. On this CD, which features previously-unreleased tracks in addition to the contents of the Prisma Sonoro LP that was released by Cometa in the 70s, the instruments are played in a very peculiar way, like solo instruments, which contribute to create a sound typical of that which earned the composer a great degree of success. The arrangements, the harmonic language, and the instrumental dialogue of the various cues combine to create in the listener romantic sensations both lovely and contemporary.
