Carlo Rustichelli

Kapò (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack In Full Stereo)

Label: Digitmovies

Format: CD

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


*2022 stock* Digitmovies proudly presents on CD the complete OST by Carlo Rustichelli (Carpi, 1916 - Rome, 2004) for “Kapò” directed in 1960 by Gillo Pontecorvo (also collaborator to the music score). For this particular story (Edith, a young jewish girl locked up in a nazi prison camp, after assuming the new identity as Nicole becomes a ”Kapo”, a prisoner’s guard working for the Germans) M°Rustichelli has written a symphonic score based on a classic style adagio for harpsichord (the instrument the girl had learnt to play before the imprisoning) that is alternated from melancholic to mysterious themes to represent all the gloomy and sad atmosphere of the prison camp.

Recently, at the Cinevox Archives, we could discover all the stereophonic master tapes (in very good conditions) of the 1960 recording session. This gave us the possibility (also thanks to the music cues sheet, where all movie scenes and their music timings were all annotated) to reconstruct and to restore the complete score in chronological order and in full stereo. This CD is enriched by several alternate takes (in stereo) and a short suite (also in stereo) of the 1960 recording session with recording room sounds, wrong takes, rehearsals and with the voices of M° Carlo Rustichelli, M° Franco Ferrara and of the copyst/studio contractor Donato Salone. For a matter of completeness, after several searches we could find the mono master tape assembled for the original 1960 45 rpm EP (for the first absolute time on CD) that brings the total length of our CD to about 74 minutes. Despite of the careful digital restoration and remastering, some anomalies pre-existing on the original sources could have remained.
