AllMusic Review by

Music for Film contains selections from seven Rota scores -- The Godfather, The Godfather, Pt. 2, 8 1/2, The Orchestral Rehearsal, La Dolce Vita, Rocco and His Brothers, The Leopard -- as performed by Riccardo Muti and the Filarmonica della Scala. Muti has researched Rota's scores and notes, finding the composer's original ideas for the scores and basing his interpretations on those. The results are uniformly stunning, bringing the scores to vivid life and revealing new subtlties within the music itself. It's essential for any fan of Rota, Muti or film music.
