2014 release. Digitmovies Bruno Canfora's complete original soundtrack for the movie La Regina Dei Tartari (aka "The Huns" - "Queen of the Tartars"). Directed in 1960 by Sergio Grieco and starring Chelo Alonso, Raf Baldassarre, Chiquita Coffelli, Philippe Hersent, Folco Lulli, Mario Petri, Andrea Scotti, Jacques Sernas, Pietro Tordi, and Piero Lulli. After defeating a village and killing its inhabitants, Igor (Lulli), the big chief of a Tartar tribe, decides to spare a girl named Tania (Alonso). On the death of Igor, the girl takes command of the tribe, and has her differences with Malok (Sernas), head of the Black Tartars. The name of Bruno Canfora, although it's unfortunately not very well represented regarding OST, is undoubtedly very popular in the panorama of Italian television entertainment. Born in Milan on November 6, 1924, he is an Italian conductor, composer, arranger, and lyricist. The public remembers Canfora as an arranger and conductor in the TV programs: Sabato Sera hosted in 1967 by Mina, Canzonissima'68 presented by Mina, Walter Chiari, and Paolo Panelli, and Canzonissima'69 with the Kessler Twins, Johnny Dorelli, and Raimondo Vianello. For cinema, Bruno Canfora has composed OST for the films I Soldi (1963), Le Sedicenni (1965), James Tont Operazione D.U.E. (1966), Spia Spione (1966), Rita La Zanzara (1966), Non Stuzzicate La Zanzara (1967), Il Vostro Super Agente Flit (1967), Io Non Scappo... Fuggo (1970), Nel Giorno Del Signore (1970), Il Trucido E Lo Sbirro (1978), La Banda Del Trucido (1978). For Digitmovies' CD, they used every note contained in the mono master tapes of the original recording session. Canfora, for this particular OST removed the strings and used only the brass, woodwind, and percussion (same artistic choice by Mario Nascimbene for Alessandro Il Grande). These create atmospheres with an ancient flavor, between heroic and mysterious, alternating with vigorous music for battle, and the recurring presence of a delicate love theme.
