Beppe Carta and Stefano Torossi’s Musica per tutte le eta’ (1970s) Metropole Records

In the early to mid 1970s, Beppe Carta and Stefano Torossi released Musica per tutte le eta’ for Italy’s Metropole Records. Composed by Torossi and directed by Carta, the limited release LP features a dozen tracks of classical and jazz music intended for use on radio, television, and film.

The first side of Musica per tutte le eta’ includes Stefano Torossi’s “Ballata infantile,” “Ninna nanna per un pupazetto,” “Melodia infantile,” “Tema per un clown,” “Tango di papa'” and “Un vecchio tango.” Like the other four albums Torossi did for Metropole, this album was only issued in Italy in very small numbers sometime in the early 1970s.

Stefano Torossi’s “Tango di papa'” is on SoundCloud:

Compositions by Stefano Torossi on side two include “Valzer dell’altalena,” “Dolce Tango,” “Ritorno dalla gita,” “Zenia,” “Comix,” and “Valzer infantile.”

The collection of waltzes, tangos, and related classical and jazz-influenced compositions by Torossi, directed by Beppe Carta, is similar to those on Fantasia Musicale (SM 7012) album, a Metropole release by Carta and Torossi that followed Musica per tutte le eta’ (SM 7011).
