Originally released in 1975 by Italian label Octopus Records, a label devoted to
thematic libraries, Angoscia is one of the best works by Italian composer
Alessandro Alessandroni. Famous for his film-score work -- often with such
masters as Piero Umiliani and Ennio Morricone, with whom he collaborated
to create some truly immortal soundtracks (especially those written for Sergio
Leone) -- Alessandroni also developed a parallel career as an author of library
music, freely crossing and touching every music genre. Alone, or together with
friends and pupils like Rino de Filippi (aka Gisteri) and Giuliano Sorgini
(aka Raskovich), he always managed to push the boundaries of
experimentation, but with great taste and personality, never giving up on the
majestic orchestrations characteristic of his art. Angoscia, released when
Alessandroni was at his creative peak, features 12 tracks revolving around the
album's core theme of angoscia, or anguish; the pieces move through dismay,
desperation, uncertainty, pride, resignation, frustration, desolation, agony,
prostration, obsession, and, finally, fear. Thirty minutes of anguish have never
seemed so enticing and nuanced... Edition of 300 copies; first-ever reissue;
