Vorrei essere scrittore di musica
Improvisations on films by Pier Paolo Pasolini
Introduction by Roberto Calabretto
Umberto Petrin, jazz piano

It’s not easy to line up Pasolini’s films with the music he selected to accompany them. Every film, in fact, deserves a broad discussion to highlight the beauty and complexity of the universe of sound in his cinema. However, one can at least outline some of the patterns that guided Pasolini’s specific choices.
On one hand there is Bach, the ‘inspiring angel’ of his first films. Then come Vivaldi and Mozart, who repeatedly feature. They are just hinted at in Uccellacci e uccellini but then become protagonists in Edipo re, in Fiore delle Mille e una notte and in Che cosa sono le nuvole. Alongside this ‘universe’ there is lots of ethnic music, commenting Christ’s deeds and events in the Vangelo secondo Matteo and framing the narration in what became known as a ‘classic trilogy’. And don’t forget the long strings of popular songs running through the Decameron and his Canterbury Tales.
But these films have been enriched by the presence of many composers, especially Ennio Morricone, who considered his encounter with Pasolini one of the most important events of his life.
