“Almost all of Amarcord is a macabre dance against a cheerful background,” said a contemporary review of the film, and Nino Rota is in peak form providing the music for this dance. By mining the rich musical world of 1920s and 1930s jazz and big band music, Rota fashions a creative, engaging score that is nostalgic for an era that never really existed—it only flourishes in the director’s memories of his childhood. Almost every film score lover is familiar with the wistful main theme, and this is the first chance to hear exactly how much music Rota actually provided for the film.
