SCUSI, LEI E FAVOREVOLE O CONTRARIO? (300 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Piero Piccioni

Digitmovies is releasing the complete edition CD of the OST by Piero Piccioni for the comedy “Pardon, Are You For Or Against?” (original title: “Scusi, lei è favorevole o contrario?” aka “El gran amante”).

This CD is the result of passionate and unceasing research, selection and restoration of a soundtrack which absolutely deserved to be rescued and preserved. All of this was possible thanks to the mono master tapes from the original recording session which have survived until today in good condition. Unfortunately, the take of the "Opening Titles" was very damaged and although we tried everything to save it, the sound is not the same quality as the rest of the CD. Originally the label Parade had released an EP single (45PRL 5022) with the songs “Per noi due soli” ("For the two of us") and "Shake and soda." It was not until 1998 that a wide selection of brand new material came out for the first time on CD in Japan, but our edition is the final one. Piero Piccioni composed one of the most brilliant OSTs of his long career with this album. Bruno Nicolai conducted beautifully and the Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni chime in with their renowned talent. M ° Piccioni composed three recurring themes. “Per noi due soli” ("For the two of us just") is a romantic orchestral love theme for Tullio and the female world that revolves around him. "Sambinha” is a wild samba that adds a dash of Latin American flavor and makes Roma seem like Rio. It’s uplifting and danceable with strings and rhythms that are a pure joy to listen to. Piero Piccioni is very versatile with music. This OST is packed with fabulous lounge style pieces including "Shake and Soda", for the scene where Alberto Sordi and Silvana Mangano are dancing in a club (in the film version a man's voice was added, but it was not available at the recording session). We are also adding the re-recording in stereo of the love theme that the M° Piccioni recorded especially for a compilation. For those who tremendously enjoy Alberto Sordi and Piero Piccioni as much as we do, this CD is intended to be tribute to the art of two film titans, immortal in the hearts of film fans and music lovers.

Potbellied Tullio Conforti is the well-off fifty-year-old owner of a successful textile factory. He is separated from his wife and lives alone in a luxurious apartment with his trusted butler Igor. His existence is much more eventful than it may appear when he tells an interviewer that he is against divorce in Italy because of his religious principles. In reality Conforti had never thought about divorce because he is practically keeping a harem with all the women around him, and meanwhile continuing to see his wife as well, who prefers having a relationship with a Baron. At work he is dynamic, but this does not prevent him from devoting himself to Emanuela, to the baroness Olga, to a Swedish hostess,to a young woman, and to the twins his father had with Mrs. Camilla. Tullio devotes one day a week to each woman, as well as millions of Euros and thoughtful acts to resolve all their possible problems, while reserving Sundays for himself for cruises on his yacht.
