L'ARMATA BRANCALEONE (300 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Carlo Rustichelli

Digitmovies is pleased to release the complete OST by Carlo Rustichelli for the ?lm “For Love and Gold” (aka “L’armata Brancaleone”, ”Brancaleone’s Army”).

Carlo Rustichelli (Carpi, December 24, 1916 - Rome, November 13, 2004) was the author of hundreds of ?lm soundtracks and will go down in history for his famous friendship with director Pietro Germi and for the “Brancaleone March,” a true iconic hymn like the “James Bond” theme” by Monty Norman or “the Raiders March” by John Williams from “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. This unforgettable choir motif is introduced by “Branca Branca Branca Leon Leon Leon” and a whistle and is the heart of the background music, which the author reprises with orchestral versions that are sometimes comical and sometimes dramatic- all under the direction of Bruno Nicolai. Two of the other supporting scores are “Pirulè” the psalm theme of the pilgrims, and “Cuccuruccù” sung by a female voice accompanied by the mandola. For our CD (total running time 70:43 minutes) we were able to access the mono master tapes from the original recording session. We’ve included the audio editing on the ?rst ?fteen tracks which we personally prepared with Maestro Rustichelli for the CD’s ?rst release in 1995, followed by ?lm versions, alternate takes and the singles released in 1966 on the single Parade PRC 5002. The CD ends with the rare take of the march introduced by the voice of Vittorio Gassman. Winner of three Silver Ribbons, the ?lm was presented in competition at the 19th Cannes Film Festival.

While on his way to take over the Aurocastro ?efdom, a knight is attacked by bandits who overpower him and throw him in a ditch. One of the bandits ?nds the parchment which declares the knight’s investiture of the ?efdom, so he convinces his friend Brancaleone to take the knight’s place. Brancaleone takes command of the bandits, but along the way to Aurocastro he runs into various ordeals: an encounter with Teo latto and his Byzantines, the occupation and escape from a city in the grip of the plague, and the rescue of an extravagant bride. When he ?nally reaches the feifdom, the army is attacked by Saracens but is saved by the warriors (commanded by the knight who had been attacked by the gang). The only thing left for Brancaleone and his men to do is to go on a Crusade in Palestine.
