Extremely essential for those looking for absolute orchestral technique in producing a better sound definition. Muti leads the Filarmonica to surpass the music and read the real Godfather. Rota would have been so impressed to know his music was performed in such a beauty. Bravo Muti and Filarmonica.

This collection contains an excellent cross-section of Nino Rota's unique film career, not just "Godfather; Il Gattopardo," as the title on this website suggests. Aside from the memorable and unique beauty of his music, Nino Rota knew how to write music for a smaller orchestra. His individual voice for portraying emotion and humor though music is something captured extremely well in this set of re-recorded pieces, and the booklet notes say that the scores were reconstructed from Rota's typically scattered notes. I recommend this recording for anyone who loves not just film music, but instrumental music as well.
