"Maestro Nino Rota is best known for the seventeen film soundtracks he
composed for the great Italian director Federico Fellini. These date from The White Sheik in 1952 to The Orchestra Rehearsal twenty-seven years later. Along the way the composer and director forged a singular creative partnership, capturing the absurdities and romances of Italian provincial life, of the circus and the street parade, of nightclubs and cafes, complimented by that indefinably nostalgic quality that is so characteristic of Rota¹s work. To Fellini, Nino Rota contributed scores for such masterpieces of European cinema as La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, Fellini Roma, Amarcord and Casanova, but his greatest international success came in 1972 with the music he created for Francis Ford Coppola¹s The Godfather."
