This collection of themes is a most personal project for concert pianist Palumbo. It effectively captures the focus of his friendship with the composer, being a recording of the piano transcriptions Rota both gave to and played for him. Historically, then, it is of no small significance. Regrettably, the downsizing of some of cinema's most robust musical motifs makes for unsatisfactory listening. It was the dizzying heights of orchestrational genius that made Rota's themes from Death On The Nile, Romeo And Juliet, The Taming Of The Shrew, and The Godfather so memorable. Reduced to a pianistic parlour presentation, all of the colour is faded to grey. What's left are indisputably catchy tunes, and the odd moment of impressive playing. But devoid of the sheer volume to which Rota's music gloriously ascended it is far better to enjoy the pieces as originally intended. --Paul Tonks
