Press Release from Kronos:

The 3 part miniserial was directed by Giorgo Moser and presented at the 1979 edition of the Sorrento Film Festival.
The music for UN REIETTO DELLE ISOLE was composed by none less than Maestro MARIO NASCIMBENE (well known for his epic scores THE VIKINGS, SALOMON AND SHEBA, BARABBAS, and other dramtic scores as LA GARCONNIERE and ULTIMA VIOLENZA). The music for UN REIETTO DELLE ISOLE is one of Nascimbene’s most intimate scores, written for solo Eastern instruments, mainly the sitar and the santur creating a dreamy soundscape that blends spiritualism with the mundane world and the drame of the story.
This is a world first time release in any format of this unique score by one of the greatest composers Italy and the World ever had.
