It's hard enough for a score composer tasked with writing music for a genre film to come up with something both original and appropriate to the stylistic confines of the movie formula. But when a composer is brought in to work on a parody of a genre film, asserting any individuality must be even harder. And then there's the question, should the composer just stick to the clichés, or make the music funny, too? Christopher Lennertz seems to have intended to have it both ways in his music for the satire Vampires Suck, a send-up of the Twilight series, saying in a sleeve note that he wanted to take all the typical musical characteristics of a vampire movie "and turn it up to eleven," but also that the music was supposed to "play the straight man against the comedy." As it turns out, this hedge is a good description of what he achieved. It is true that, when he's writing the many climaxes that pepper the score (such as those heard in the cues "Edward Saves Becca" and "The Pack Arrives"), he goes over the top, to the point that the music is too melodramatic to be taken seriously. Similarly, the goth rock of "Meet the Sullens," complete with Amy White providing wordless wailing in the manner of Amy Lee of Evanescence, seems like a joke version of such music as heard in other scores. But much of the time, Lennertz does play the straight man, which means that he writes clichéd music that could just as easily be in one of the Twilight movies as in a parody of them. ~ William Ruhlmann

Jorge Bolet & Franz Liszt

Fra le sue dita, la musica di Franz Liszt è emersa sotto una nuova luce, grazie ad una visione allo stesso tempo poetica e lirica, molto lontana dal virtuosismo gratuito e chiassoso che si sente troppo spesso. Ai primi degli anni Ottanta, Jorge Bolet incide per DECCA un’antologia del compositore ungherese che farà storia, alla quale si aggiungono altre incisioni realizzate per l’etichetta spagnola ENSAYO, per RCA negli anni Settanta, per EVEREST nel 1960, nonché registrazioni di studio e radiofoniche negli anni Cinquanta, quando aveva ancora tutte le sue straordinarie risorse tecniche.

L’età dell’oro della commedia musicale hollywoodiana

Come i western e i film sui gangster, la commedia musicale è uno dei generi più emblematici del classicismo hollywoodiano. Tra il 1930 e il 1960, piccolo panorama di un cinema glamour e colorato, certo, ma spesso meno superficiale di quanto possa sembrare.

Blaxploitation, prima di «Black Panther»

Più di 45 anni prima del successo del film Black Panther, Hollywood puntava sulla comunità afroamericana proponendole degli eroi su misura. Da Shaft a Super Fly passando per Blacula, la blaxploitation proponeva allora gialli, commedie e persino film di vampiri le cui musiche contengono alcune pepite degli anni ’70 dalle sonorità assolutamente groove…
