Beat Records is pleased to present on a double CD set the complete score by Piero Piccioni for the movie IO SO CHE TU SAI CHE IO SO (aka "I Know that You Know that I Know"), a comedy directed by Alberto Sordi in 1982, with a screenplay by Rodolfo Sonego, Alberto Sordi and Augusto Caminito, photography by Sergio D'Offizi, editing by Tatiana Casini Morigi and music score by Piero Piccioni, starring Alberto Sordi, Monica Vitti, Isabella De Bernardi, Salvatore Jacono, Giuseppe Mannajuolo, Micaela Pignatelli, Pierfrancesco Aiello, Ivana Monti, Claudio Gora, Sandro Paternostro, Napoleone Sgrugli and Cesare Cadeo.
Piero Piccioni, in the tradition of the splendid combination Sordi/director, Piccioni/musician, composed a soundtrack filled with all those elements typical of Alberto Sordi's Cinema, which all fans adore. With singular talent, Piccioni alternates extremely romantic themes with funky dance music, sometimes with a Latin American flavor, such as "Volo di mezzanotte," which sees the great Brazilian artist Toquinho performing on guitar. At the time, General Music released a 33 rpm (GM 30702) containing fourteen selections prepared by the composer. In 2009, GDM Music released a CD reissuing the original album for the first time, with eleven unreleased tracks. Today we re-release that expanded CD and include a second CD of unreleased material (total duration 139:13) using the stereo master tapes from the original recording session. This double-CD set is proof that in addition to top class music, Maestro Piccioni always wrote and recorded a huge amount of alternative versions with numerous different instruments, many of which were not used in the final version of the film.
