Italian cinema soundtracks special

Gilles plays a mix of his favourite Italian soundtracks as part of the Sound of Cinema season, featuring music from greats such as Ennio Morricone and Piero Umiliani.

This week Gilles puts together a mix of some of his favourite Italian cinema soundtracks as part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season, featuring music from greats such as Ennio Morricone, Riz Ortolani and Piero Umiliani. These composers were famed for their lush soundtracks to primarily European films throughout the 1960s, with some of them crossing over to Hollywood in the 1970s. Their influence remains strong today, with many of their scores being reused in modern films such as Kill Bill and Django Unchained.
