Hal Willner’s Amarcord Nino Rota
This event has passed

Legendary music producer Hal Willner brings together an eclectic array of musicians for an imaginative musical tribute to Italian composer Nino Rota, known for his iconic scores to Federico Fellini’s films including La Dolce Vita, , and Juliet of the Spirits. The night opens with music from two other famous Rota scores—the first two Godfather movies—before digging into the Fellini music with a live performance of the seminal 1981 tribute album that launched Willner’s storied career, Amarcord Nino Rota (I Remember Nino Rota).  

“Transcends and extends the originals…When you see La Dolce Vita after hearing the new interpretations, you admire Rota even more. ”
Guardian (U.K.)
