Original Soundtrack of Fellini's Satyricon

In 1969 Federico Fellini released his controversial cinematic portrayal of Petronius' fragmented novel with the soundtrack by Nino Rota. On November 26, 2016 Rustblade Records will reissue the music.

From the promo material:

Satyricon (1969) was one of the few adaptations helmed by Federico Fellini during his career, based on the fragmented novel of the same title by Petronius. Described as one of “the most profoundly controversial movies in all history,” the story tells the picaresque journey of a former gladiator, who is in search of his boy lover. Nino Rota composed one of his most unusual scores for the film, evoking barbaric rhythms and ancient-sounding instruments to underscore the colorful visual cacophony of the film.

Although the score had been released previously on CD those issues were produced from LPs sources, whereas this CD has been mastered from the first generation stereo master tapes, recently discovered in the vaults of EMI Italy.
