Digitmovies proudly releases a double disc set containing the original
score composed by Ennio Morricone in 1971 for the TV mini series called
"Tre Donne" starring the Italian diva Anna Magnani in one of her last
roles (she passed away in 1973).
All four Tv movies were written and directed by Alfredo Giannetti (died in
1994), co- produced by Rai television and Istituto Luce. But only three of
them were broadcasted as "Tre donne," "1943: un incontro," "La sciantosa,"
The fourth Tv movie called "Correva l’anno di grazia 1870" with Marcello
Mastroianni as male guest star had a theatrical presentation in Italy
distributed by Medusa.
In France all 4 Tv movies were broadcasted as "Quatre Femmes."
The four stories feature four different women with the great face of Anna
Magnani placed in four different historic moments of Italy: First and
Second World War, Italian Risorgimento and early ‘70s.
In his music Ennio Morricone has captured musically with great passion all
those historical and psychological elements of the four stories of love
The two discs set was prepared as a result of the strong cooperation of
C.A.M. film Music Archives with the supervision of Ennio Morricone. All
the original stereophonic master tapes have survived and they enabled us
to release the most complete presentation of this superb score.
Originally only a single (C.A.M. AMP 091) was issued in Italy and later as
an album with some selections appeared in America (LP Cerberus CEM-S
0117). More or less the same contents were re-issued also on CD (C.A.M.
CSE 099). While re-listening to the complete tapes, Mr. Morricone decided
to reject some of the LP existing tracks for the double disc edition in
favour of newly discovered takes and as final result we achieved a truly
wonderful listening experience.
Now we are releasing 30 tracks with a total length of almost 98 minutes.
The two main themes "Canzone senza parole" and "Solitudine" are reprised
very often in this long score and they are the recurring themes describing
the love and despair of each woman of the four stories.
Disc 1 contains the music scores from episode "1943: Un incontro" and "La
sciantosa" with four previously unreleased.
Disc 2 contains the scores from the episodes "Correva l’anno di grazia
1870" and "L’automobile."
