  • August 24, 2007 Nice collection of works lesser known to Americans

    The CD in back is a great idea, but it's not of the piano transcriptions. It features the original soundtracks, but only a selection of what is actually featured in the collection. I was most interested in "Rocco E I Suoi Fratelli", but the arrangement doesn't translate well...

    to solo piano. (The Amarcord selections are more successful.) I would recommend the collection from the Godfather films as an excellent alternative.
