GDM Music releases the complete OST of Ennio Morricone from the movie directed in 1965 by Marco Bellocchio "I pugni in tasca" (aka "Fist in his pocket"). The history is all placed in a closed, overwhelming and distressing space, where a disturbed family lives and where all the members, each with different personality, they do not have reason to exist by themselves, morbidly being all attacked ones to the others. This extreme atmosphere of love and death is rendered perfectly in music by Ennio Morricone who is successful to create refined rarefied and magical sounds, sometimes mysterious and obsessing, for soprano voice, harp, strings, celesta, harpsychord, bells, (the author has also recourse to the classic Dies Irae), an intense requiem for harpsychord and strings alternated to lounge music of the period (jazz, blues, twist) that breaks the painful mood of the story. Besides five stereo mixes, eight inedit tracks in mono have been added from the complete original master tapes. This CD also includes music from the second and last collaboration of Ennio Morricone with Marco Bellocchio that was for "La Cina è vicina" released in 1967. The film, winner of Great Prize of the Jury at the 1967 Venice Film Festival and Silver Ribbon for the best screenplay and photography, it focuses on the figure of Vittorio Gordini Malvezzi, school teacher and quick-change artist political man, who is ready to become city council member. For "La Cina è vicina" Morricone has written very few music where the agitated main theme, main titles, (here presented with a very rare stereo mix) mainly performed by percussions with military style where a bizarre theme is developed (with variations of the Italian national hymn) that it reprised after a short and delicate passage of piano and strings in "Ninna nanna 1968", a suspended and poetic piece of classic kind for strings, celesta and with grotesque muted brass.
