Pino Donaggio

Don’t Look Now (Original Soundtrack): Vinyl LP


Release date: 15 December, 2017

Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 horror film Don’t Look Now still retains the power to shock 44 years after its release and over that time has established itself as a seminal work in that genre. Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland are a married couple mourning the death of their young daughter, clinging on to her memory through a meeting with a mysterious psychic in Venice.

Native Venetian composer Pino Donaggio was discovered by a producer on the film and his music appealed to director Roeg. It became his debut film score, launching a long career and a close working relationship with Brian De Palma. Many of the instruments in this recording were played by the composer himself. As well as writing soundtracks, Donaggio wrote Dusty Springfield’s chart-topping hit “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me” (originally a hit in Italian as “Io Che Non Vivo”) The cover was the winning design by artist Benio Urbanowicz in a competition organised by Creative Review and BFI Publishing for the 20th anniversary edition of the BFI Film Classics book on the film.
