Very bad news about the issuing of MI RICORDO ANNA FRANK cd.
This morning, for reasons of work, I have had a long telephone call with RAITRADE Milano. I availed myself of the opportunity to ask for news about the issuing of the cd MI RICORDO ANNA FRANK.
This afternoon, I have received two e-mails from RAITRADE Roma:" ...we are sorry to have to tell you that, for the moment, the issuing of the cd isn't expected and we can't say if and when the cd will be out. We will keep you informed about...".
I have preferred not to go deep into the reasons of this non-issuing.
All Morricone's soundtracks which took place against the background of all Negrin's films, have been issued on cd. The couple Negrin-Morricone without any cd? This would be the first time.
Anyhow, this is a very bad news because, if the cd really had not been issued, the wide public should be satisfied with uncomplete fragments of music taken from the dvd which, anyhow, will not see the light, at the best, before 6-7 months.
I have never understood by which one criteria, a label decides to issue or not a cd. Nobody knows it. There are at least one million of possible reasons.
I think that this, since BAARIA, altough bad, is the only one really interesting news, surely more interesting than all those various "definitive editions" issuings. What I think about them is well-known. Somebody lives in the past, someone else lives in the present: matter of tastes...
If a real definitive edition of I PROMESSI SPOSI were be issued with true new music ( not variations of well-known themes ) believe me, I would be the first to get the cd. Maybe that someone will disagree with me preferring to talk about the hidden and rare treasures contained in the last editions of OCEANO or LA TENDA ROSSA... As I have already told: matter of tastes...
Coming back to MI RICORDO ANNA FRANK cd, this is the worst way for Morricone to go out from the scenes because if someone has not yet realized or has pretended not to realize, know that, apart from "last moment" surprises, ANNA FRANK represents the word "end" to Morricone's career as soundtracks composer. The concerts ( few ) and the beloved "definitive editions" will go on, but I am not interested in them.
The time of balances has started. Beautiful or ugly, this is the truth and nobody can change it.
Anyhow, I hope that RAITRADE will find the way to publish the cd so that all Morricone's fans will be able to enjoy this very beautiful soundtrack. If this will not happen, what to say? Someone ( very few ) will enjoy the soundtrack all the same.
I'll keep you informed if there will be news...good or bad.
P.S Nobody talks about I DEMONI DI SAN PIETROBURGO anymore. Another one bad tale...
The cd? It's ready since a long time, but it's still on the moon. Commercial reasons...
