Un Caso Di Coscienza -- Non Commettere Atti Impuri


Beat Records release for the first time on CD -- complete and in stereo -- the scores by Riz Ortolani for the comedy movies Un Caso Di Coscienza, directed in 1970 by Giovanni Grimaldi, and Non Commettere Atti Impuri, directed in 1971 by Guilio Petroni. For Un Caso Di Coscienza, Ortolani composed a wild shake theme that is introduced in the opening titles in a vocal version (with lyrics by the actor Fiorenzo Fiorentini and orchestra conducted by Natale Massara) performed by Il Supergruppo. This beat motif is revisited throughout the film in different versions and for the party scene in the Baron Favara palace. Ortolani composed other motifs for a magical and mysterious theme with ancient flavor for flutes and guitar, another danceable shake, an evocative piece with solo organ for the mass scene, and atmospheric lounge music for romantic or dining sequences. Beat Records used everything that was recorded in stereo during the recording session, stored in the private archives of the Ortolani family. The cue sheets indicate that track 12 was considered for a single that was never released, but in 1970 the song featured in the opening titles was officially released on Ricordi LP with the title Il Supergruppo, formed by members of other bands known in the '60s: Victor Sogliani of Equipe 84, Mino Di Martino of Giganti, Gianni Dall'Aglio of Iribelli, Petruccio Montalbetti of Dik Dik, and Ricky Gianco who supervised the production of the 33rpm. There is also a promotional white-label single featuring the song (same piece on both sides). For Non Commettere Atti Impuri, Ortolani composed a brilliant soundtrack that opens with a lively, beat-flavored main theme introduced in "Titoli Di Testa" and reprised as a shake. For the tender love story between the boy and girl, Ortolani composed a delicate motif with several variations, an agitated theme for psychedelic organ and percussion, religious music for organ and organ with Gregorian chant, and sensual music for the scenes with Barbara Bouchet, The main theme is reprised in the finale with rock guitar and brass, the middle portion featuring drums in a shake tempo with Gregorian chant. The material from Non Commettere Atti Impuri comes from the stereo master recordings stored in Beat Records' archives. Co-produced by Claudio Fuiano for CFSoundtracks and Daniele De Gemini for Beat Records. Mastering by Claudio Fuiano and Enrico De Gemini.
