The Nino Rota Ensemble was formed in 1995, marking the centennial of cinematography. It is, therefore, not surprising that the Ensemble’s repertoire is dominated by film music, more particularly the works of the greatest Italian and world’s composers of film and stage scores (Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Rizirero Ortolani, Nicola Piovani, George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, Max Steiner, etc.), originally arranged by pianist and ensemble member Deborah Vico. The Ensemble regularly performs in opening ceremonies of film festivals (in Thessaloniki, Annecy, Villerupt, Stockholm, and Luxembourg). Their performances have also been enriched with the presence of famous directors and composers, such as: Stelvio Cipriani, Ennio Morricone, Ettore Scola, Francesco Rosi, and Marco Bellocchio. The Ensemble frequently plays in concerts around the world: in Sweden (Stockholm, Vaesteras), Portugal (Lisbon, Coimbra), Egypt (Cairo, Alexandria), Germany (Munich), France (Annecy, Lille and Arras), Croatia (Zagreb, Split), Greece (Patras, Rhodes, Thessaloniki), Turkey (Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir), Azerbaijan (Baku), Taiwan (Taipei and ten other cities), Brazil (Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Juiz del Fora, Rio de Janeiro), Tunisia (Carthage), Morocco (Casablanca), Cyprus (Limassol, Nicosia, Pathos, Bellapais, Famagusta), Lebanon, Libya and Syria (Beirut, Tripoli, Damascus), Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Lithuania (Riga), Indonesia (Jakarta), and Nigeria. They have recorded numerous discography releases, and their performances have been broadcast by a number of radio and TV stations (RAI, Radio Vaticana and the Portuguese National Television).
