The cinematography of the well-known Italian director Federico Fellini (1920-1993) is unimaginable without the music of his long-time friend, composer Nino Rota (1911-1979). Sarcasm, irony, phantasmagoria are just a few of the epithets that describe the style of these two colourful artists, recognisable in just a few frames or intonations. Inspired by Federico Fellini’s breakneck films, the State Wind Orchestra Trimitas has developed a joyful musical programme This Is the Orchestra!, which is full of Nino Rota’s best-known themes from the films of La Strada, Il Bidone, La Dolce Vita, The Godfather, Amarcord, Juliet of the Spirits, and others.
