GREAT PERFORMANCES: "LA DOLCE VITA: THE MUSIC OF ITALIAN CINEMA"
February 27, 2015  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

The New York Philharmonic salutes the music of Italian cinema, with help from Reneé Fleming, Josh Groban and Joshua Bell. Alan Gilbert conducts selected works from Italian movie soundtracks, including classic ones by Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota. Music from Federico Fellini’s and La Dolce Vita are here, and from Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West, and others. But they missed a great one: Piero Piccioni’s great music and vocal arrangements for Elio Petri’s 1965 futuristic The 10th Victim. Check local listings.
