Quartet Records, in collaboration with EMI Music Publishing and GDM, celebrates the centenary of iconic filmmaker, author, poet and intellectual Pier Paolo Pasolini with this remastered reissue of Ennio Morricone cult score for ARABIAN NIGHTS (1974).

Rounding out the director’s trilogy of classic short story adaptations (started by DECAMERON and CANTERBURY TALES), ARABIAN NIGHTS was based upon stories from 1001 NIGHTS. Pasolini shot on authentic Middle Eastern and Himalayan locations in a stunning display of the timeless erotic tales, showcasing real native actors, homebrewed Italian talents and a handful of his regular troupe.

Ennio Morricone had a long working relationship with Pasolini after composing the original scores for UCCELACCI E UCCELLINI and TEOREMA, but served only as a musical advisor on the previous episodes of the trilogy. Here he’s back in full swing, writing the longest score for any of his Pasolini pictures. Featuring variations on two beautiful romantic themes as well as diabolic organ music for the episode of the djinn, Morricone’s colorful orchestral tapestry is a true exotic delight.

This limited LP edition of 500 units, pressed on audiophile 180gm transparent desert vinyl, has been restored and mastered by Chris Malone, and the package features luxurious artwork designed by Luca Barcellona.
