Fanatics of ’70s Italian giallos take note… Behold a veritable smorgasbord of sounds that is Ennio Morricone’s score to Dario Argento’s debut film, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage (a.k.a. L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo) from 1970. Considered one of the genre’s gold standards, Maestro Morricone’s stunning sonic work is a masterful accompaniment to the knife-wielding images on the screen. This colorful (yet dark) score features il Maestro’s trademark scat vocal harmonies, beautiful melodies, and mandatory sinister themes – perfect musica for this wonderfully stylistic giallo masterpiece. The first of Argento’s “animal trilogy” series, the music on The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is a lovely mix of string-infused bossa, to tenser and instrumentally sparse passages that Morricone does so well. Just be sure to handle the piumaggio cristallino with care… we suggest wearing your black gloves.
