Reissue Of Original 1968 Version! Includes Compositions By Both Mozart & Morricone!
"Teorema" is a film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, publicly presented for the first time in September 1968 at the International Film Festival in Venice; it immediately shocked its viewers, like many other of Pasolini's works, and was seized by the Public Prosecutor of Rome while the director, with producer Donato Leoni, were charged with obscenity - and eventually absolved.
The music of the film is divided in two: the original vinyl B-side is entirely occupied by Mozart's "Messa da Requiem", while the A-side houses five original compositions written by Ennio Morricone. These consist of two opening dissonant and discordant tracks, solely played with classical instruments ("Teorema", "Frammenti"), a ballad sung by the Junior Trio ("Fruscio di green leaves"), a piece that is reminiscent of a western movie by Sergio Leone ("L'ultima corrida") and a closing instrumental beat/psych song ("Beat N° 3").
This Vinyl Magic reissue faithfully reproduces the original 1968 version, and is printed in a limited edition on 180 gram transparent lime colored vinyl.
