Matrimonio Con Vizietto (Il Vizietto 3)
Music by Ennio Morricone
Digitmovies CDDM0102 (Italy)
20 Tracks 54:01 mins

For the third in the trilogy of comedies, known in Italy as Il Vizietto, but more perhaps familiar worldwide as La Cage Aux Folles, regular series composer Ennio Morricone came up with a delightful, melodic score, commencing with the co-written pop ballad "Now It's Up To Me," sung by Tilda. This theme is reprised in a number of varied, but lovely instrumental versions throughout the subsequent score. There's another poppy Tilda vocal of the score's secondary theme "Ask Me," and a second version sung by Sam Jordan. The theme is again reprised in both gentle orchestral form and also a more straightforward, lush instrumental.
"Castelli di Scozia" presents a lovely flute-lead theme, something of a Morricone trademark over the years, whilst he comedy is represented by the busy "Il Piacere di Placere," which appers a couple of times. "Due Ragazzi Normall" is a brief, bluesy trumpet piece. An interesting track is a disco number, which takes its lead from Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee."
This delightful CD is, always, accompanied by a colourful booklet, featuring stills and artwork from the film, together with Claudio Fuiano's introductory notes. Visit
