REVIEWS:

Here we have eighty-one minutes of Nino Rota’s music for the films of Federico Fellini – played superbly by the La Scala Philharmonic, conducted with relish and affection
Read more by Riccardo Chailly. The music transcends the silver-screen medium for listening pleasure on its own terms. Several Fellini/Rota favorites are here, including La Dolce Vita and Amarcord. And if you like Shostakovich in Dance/Film/Jazz mode, then you are in luck with The Clowns, the music tumbling along irresistibly along.
