Synopsis

Amazon.com
"I don't know of a more significant composer in the world today," Warren Beatty said of the great Ennio Morricone in 1994. To his credit, Beatty put his money where his mouth is in the '90s, hiring il Maestro to score Bugsy, Love Affair, and his bold 1998 tragicomic political parable, Bulworth. Though Morricone's music shared screen time with a muscular hodgepodge of modern rap, it's gratifyingly been given its own release here. The disc's two Bulworth suites offer a compact primer of Morricone's often disparate styles and how they evoke different facets of the film's story and characters. The first is a lush, melancholy orchestral exercise that elicits fond memories of another Morricone masterwork, Once Upon a Time in America (replete with that score's resident soprano, Edda Dell'Orso), while the second evokes darker emotions through the composer's more tonally challenging Eurocentrism. --Jerry McCulley
 

CD Reviews

Brilliant and beautiful
John M. Evans | 06/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Reading the other two reviews, I know that they're talking about the other disk which has pop songs. This c.d. isn't "happening". It's a composed masterpiece. Make sure you buy the one with a silhouette standing in front of a flag. That's the original SCORE soundtrack. Don't get the one with the wide opened mouth. This disk(original scores) has two long scores Morricone recorded in Rome. The first score is somewhat similiar to some of the music in "Once Upon a Time in America", but defenitely original. It's one of the most beautiful classical pieces I've ever heard. The second "song" is o.k., but the first one is priceless. Buy this disk and enjoy."
