Bacalov due for Rota film music honor

ROME — Oscar-winning film score composer Luis Bacalov will receive the second annual Premio Rota award, established by Creazione Artistiche Musicale, Italy’s leading publisher of film soundtracks, to honor outstanding international contributions in the field of film music.

The Argentine composer, who won an Academy Award this year for his score for Michael Radford’s “The Postman,” will be presented the award Friday following a concert of his film music. Bacalov is completing the score for Francesco Rosi’s “The Truce.”

Starting this year, a second award, the Premio Rota Giovani, was to be presented to three music conservatory graduates intending to specialize in film scores. But the award jury headed by composer Ennio Morricone, who received the inaugural Premio Rota in 1995, judged the entries to be beneath the required standard and has elected not to present the prize this year.

The Premio Rota takes its name from late Italian composer Nino Rota, who wrote many of the scores for Federico Fellini’s films as well as for Francis Ford Coppola’s “Godfather” trilogy. Soundtrack specialist CAM is an independent music publishing company established in 1960.
