LE STREGHE (CD)
Composed by: Piero Piccioni

This CD (with a total duration close to 63 minutes) focuses only on the music of Piero Piccioni for this film. The tapes were kept in the private archives of M ° Piccioni and they have been found with the big help of Jason Piccioni, the son of the composer. Two 1/4 reel tapes, one in stereo and one in mono, which have been preserved until today in very good conditions, have really given us the chance to realize this - until today impossible - record dream. For “The Witch Scorched Alive” Piero Piccioni has written a refined dance floor theme, a shake for piano, organ, drums, guitars and brass, which we might call “The witches shake”, reprised with different instrumentations (Tr.1,Tr.3,Tr.5,Tr.Tr.9, Tr.11, Tr.13, Tr.16), and which is the background dance of Gloria in the hotel lounge room, admired by her envious friends who surround her. This dance floor music (much searched and loved by Film Music fans around the world) is alternated with a romantic, rarefied and haunting love theme that, without doubt, is one of the most beautiful love themes of the whole career of Piero Piccioni: a jazzy, slow, suspended, almost sacred theme for harp, vibraphone, guitar, celesta, flute and bass (Tr.4, Tr.6, Tr.8, Tr.10, Tr.12, Tr.14, Tr.15). As bonus tracks at the end of this CD we include, for historical and artistic purposes, the very rare mono version of the shake theme as featured in the opening titles (tr.31) - with some sound effect found in the mono master tape of the final film music/effects mix (sadly a mix without effects did not survive at all) - and a long stereo suite (tr.32) re-recorded by M ° Piccioni which is based on the shake theme and variations of the magical love theme. For the Vittorio De Sica episode starring Silvana Mangano and Clint Eastwood Piero Piccioni has written a very romantic waltz-like love theme in Tr.17,Tr. 19,Tr.24,Tr.30 alternated with burlesque American-flavoured marches (Tr.21,Tr.23,Tr.25,Tr.26,Tr.29). Also dance floor music of those days is featured like “Cha-cha beat” - both in the short original single version (Tr.18) and in the long take (Tr.28) - and lovely shake music with female choir (Tr.20). The CD does also contain source music tracks like lounge music for piano solo (Tr.2), a piano solo reprise (Tr.7) of the famous Italian hit “Il mondo” by Jimmy Fontana and Gianni Meccia, “Chariot”, a big hit of Petula Clark (written by Frank Pourcel and Paul Mauriat) aka “I Will Follow Him” in the stereo mix version with choir and orchestra (Tr.22) and its instrumental version in mono (Tr.27), both of which arranged by Piccioni himself. The score is brilliantly conducted by Bruno Nicolai and Piero Piccioni himself. Please note also that in this OST and almost in all his soundtracks, M ° Piccioni performs solo piano and organ.
