Bixio Music Group

Bixio Music was established in the 1920’s by the founding member of the Italian Society of Writers and Publishers (SIAE), the legendary writer Cesare Andrea Bixio (1896-1978). Soon after scoring his first hit “La Canzone dell’ Amore”, featured in the soundtrack of the first Italian sound movie, he started gathering around him a group of young talented artists who since then became the legends of what we consider today as the Italian Canzone better known in the world as the Italian Evergreens.

Over the years, Bixio Music Group has made its presence felt by building a remarkable catalogue which includes some of the most famous Italian songs to soundtracks by renowned composers such as Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin, Nino Rota, Pino Donaggio, all the way to pop and Sanremo hits.

Added to the greatness of this catalogue is the fact that up to date it remains one of the most complete and ready to use opus, as every single composition published has simultaneously been released by Cinevox Records, Bixio’s own label.
Ever since their first soundtrack release in 1966, Bixio and Cinevox Records have been continuously enriching the Italian music heritage – the Bixio Original Sound Tracks have in the meantime become worldwide classics.

The world of cinema is greatly indebted to the Bixio catalogue: up to date over 600 Italian movies feature Bixio songs. In Hollywood, the works of the already legendary composers became an inevitable choice for the Spaghetti Western producers. Bixio Music catalogue’s timeless beauty and genuine quality continues to be recognized today – to name just the major international movie hits that feature the compositions: “Rounders”, “The Dawn Of The Dead”, “Goodfellas”, “Mickey Blue Eyes”, “Titus”, “The Godfather 3”, “Kill Bill Vol. 1”.

Recently, in search of greater sources of inspiration, hip-hop stars and world renowned DJ’s have also turned to the Bixio classics.
Beck, G-Unit, The RZA, Keith Murray, IT, among others have recognized the incredibly rich, kaleidoscopic masterpieces hidden in this great catalogue.

BIXIO Music Group proudly presents the Bixio Opus – the catalogue’s most distinguished works, from melodies of historical value (featuring Mamma, Parlami d’Amore Mariu’, Vivere, Violino Tzigano….), to Italian’s most important soundtracks composed by legends such as Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin, Goblin, Armando Trovajoli, Nino Rota and pop icons such as Tony Esposito (Kalimba de Luna) and others.
