A real musical fairy show will take place on 8 and 9 March in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory - a concert from the works of the legendary film composer Nino Rota to the iconic films of Federico Fellini, with whom many years of creative friendship of the maestro were associated for. Rota’s music, like Fellini’s films, is imbued with amazing, peculiar only to Italians, unique sunny color and clear open lyrics. The art world of Fellini, with all its subtle nuances, specific peripeteias of the plot, mysterious, and sometimes mystical symbolism, and at the same time with a cheerfulness in a diverse world, is as if reflected in the plastic and equally mysteriously beautiful music of Rota. This is the cult “Sweet Life” (La Dolce Vita, 1960), which simultaneously combines melancholy-bohemian and almost liturgical in its elevation music, and the intense-tragic “The Road” (La Strada, 1954), saturated either with a buffalo-circus or a pathetic sound, and the movie drama “Nights of Cabiria” (Le notti di Cabiria, 1957) with its light charming foxtrot and canzone captivating with its soulfulness.
