Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore billed The Legend of 1900 not as a film, but rather a fable. But crucially, it's also that rare film whose musical score essentially involves one of its lead characters. Here, the great composer Ennio Morricone has concocted a score that's as magical as Cinema Paradiso, the team's previous musical watershed, yet gratifyingly disparate. Though Morricone takes many of his thematic cues from the rich, raucous music of the jazz age (including rags by Jelly Roll Morton and Scott Joplin), he seamlessly fuses them with his own pastoral neoclassicism and distinctly modern sensibilities. The result is a score whose philosophical kinship with The Mission is as alike as their music is wholly different--a masterful fusion of dissimilar elements in a compelling, new whole. While jazz purists may balk, Morricone devotees will be enraptured. Though his career has spanned 40 years and some 400 films, Il Maestro's invention and playful exuberance once again seem both ageless and exhilarating. And if the closing song, "Lost Boys Calling" (with lyrics and vocals by Roger Waters and underwrought guitar solos by Eddie Van Halen), seems something of a loopy, last-minute record-company gambit, simply consider it an early entry for Canto Morricone, Vol. 5. --Jerry McCulley

And the music score by Ennio Morricone is exceptional.

DVD is definately worth keeping, but if you value good music, buy the CD and cry.

This "Legend of 1900" Soundtrack isn't the version with the entire soundtrack on it. Some of the best pieces weren't included in this non-Italian version, which has 29 songs. It's missing (among others) "Magic Waltz" (the song he plays for his seasick friend with the waves crashing outside) and "Enduring Movement" (the piece that won the contest with Jelly Roll Morton).

Go to intermezzomedia.com. Once there, you'll have to search by Composer for "Morricone", and scan through the many pages of his until you get to "La Leggenda del Pianista sull'Oceano".

The company is from Italy but the site has English (as well as their confirmation emails). If you decide to buy it, the e-commerce bank they use for purchases is all in Italian, so I'd suggest going to freetranslation.com - that site does a decent job of translating the Italian phrases you enter into English. I bought from Intermezzomedia and didn't have any problems, got the CD just a few days later (using FedEx, which was a bit expensive but nice to have the tracking capabilities). The Italian version is awesome. I would NOT recommend buying the U.S. version...sorry Amazon but you really should also sell the Italian one.

This CD has most of the good solo piano songs from the movie on it. Unfortunately, it is missing some great ones. These include: Tarantella in 3rd Class, Enduring Movement (the song that wins the contest), Magic Waltz, and Portraits (when he makes up themes for individuals to his friend). The import version from Italy does contain these songs, but it is very hard to find. Also, it's almost twice as much when you do find it. So, if you're looking for all the solos, and are willing to pay more for it, look around on the net and you'll find it...

This soundtrack is absolutely incredible! However, I just wanted to put a word in about the Italian version. I found the 29-track version while I was in Italy this past summer. I was ecstatic! I bought it and listened to it every chance I could get. It is well worth the amount on the site refrenced to in another review. I highly recommend making the purchase. You'll be glad you did!

That would be the fault of Sony, for not including all the tracks as in the full original Italian version. I've bought that version, and I don't think I missed out on so much. After all, the highlight of this album, worth the price of admission alone, is Morricone's single best work out of many, many film scores: Track 2, "The Legend of the Pianist." Romantic, lush, exhilirating, it's an 8-minute joyride with a narrative development and resolution all unto itself. It goes well beyond any movie that it may have been scored for. For sheer beauty, it goes beyond "Deborah's Theme" (Once Upon a Time in America), "Love in the Morning" (Lolita), the main theme to "Once Upon a Time in the West," "Cinema Paradiso," "Gabriel's Oboe" (The Mission), etc. etc. It's apparently become a staple in Morricone's concert performances, and for good, obvious reason. I'm also plenty delighted with the other richly Romantic tracks on this album: "1900's Theme" (exhiliration in 98 seconds), "The Crisis," "Nocturne with no Moon," the two versions of "Playing Love," "Mozart Reincarnated," and "Ships and Snow." Out of the several major Morricone soundtracks I own or have heard (see above), this is rather easily my favorite.

It's a shame that this score hasn't gotten the recognition it deserves, simply because the movie it was scored for has received little recognition. I hope that I will be pleased to see "The Legend of the Pianist" becoming, in time, widely recognized as the outstanding piece of music that it is. Romanticism in music is still alive, and it's in film scores, and we have composers like Morricone to thank for this.

Be a connoisseur, get the original Italian version "La Leggenda del pianista sull'oceano" by Sony Classical, code SK 60790, 1CD, 29 tracks, length 78' 3" which includes the complete musical score. It's unforgivable not to include "Magic Waltz" (the famous piano ride sequence) and "Enduring Movement" (the contest winning sequence)plus of course the "5 Portraits" in this US version. Otherwise, this magical soundtrack is so mesmerising that you will want to listen to all day long and impossible to get it out of your head. Enjoy.

The changes made for the American version of this soundtrack have been detailed in other reviews, so I won't repeat them. However, it is worth noting that "Lost Boys Calling" was rerecorded for the American version. Eddie Vedder does not appear on the original Italian version, and the vocals are less melodramatic (both good things, at least where this song is concerned). It's a great song, but ruined in the domestic release. Import it!

I was extremely disappointed with this Sony production which I purchased in Montreal, Quebec a month ago (September 1999). Morricone's impressive score to Giuseppe Tornatore's most recent film was released more than a year ago in Italy, also on the Sony label. Can anyone explain why the North American edition should have been butchered by the loss of more than 20 minutes of music? There are often good reasons to edit foreign language films to make them more 'attractive' to a North American audience, but surely this should not be applied to the film's soundtrack?
