‣11/11/2005 Patrick B Inedited tracks from DVD
Checking the DVD, it appears that there is some unpublished dance short tracks, but not sure that all would be by EM ( though, among them, another arrangement of Citazione da un vecchio valzer surely orchestrated by EM ) . Also in the soundtrack, a "central part" of Due variazioni..., which is a new and slow theme, and a little different arrangement of the main theme of Due variazioni with scansions.
And finally, an odd thing : some piano arpeggios, as in Un pianoforte... alla finestra ( Senso 45 by the same T. Brass ) ! But solo only, without strings.
I am recording the whole for a weekly special.
