Nino Rota    
No Fellini page would be complete without mentioning Nino Rota, who wrote the music for all of Fellini's films from The White Sheik (1952) to The Orchestra Rehearsal (1979). Their collaboration enriches the world's cinema and those who view their art. There is a tribute album, Amarcord Nino Rota, by Carla Bley (1981, Hannibal Records, HNBL 9301) and a CD, the Film Music of Nino Rota by Massimo Palumbo (1999, Chandos Movies, Chan 9771) It is music strange and familiar, elegant yet comical, like Fellini's films. There is also a splendid 2-CD set called "The Essential Nino Rota Film Music Collection" on the Silva America label (2003, SBMC, Inc., SIL-CD 1153), performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.  It is the closest I've found to the soundtracks.  Listen, view. You'll be glad you did. I feel obliged to mention I have no economic interest in Ms. Bley, Mr. Palumbo or the City of Prague Philharmonic when I endorse their recordings or anything else..
