SARDEGNA (CD)
Composed by: Ennio Morricone

UNSEALED - MINOR SCUFFS ON DISC - ONLY ONE AVAILABLE

The movie SARDINIA, made in 1972, is part of the 14 documentaries funded and sponsored by ESSO ITALIANA, who aimed to bring to the attention of the large international audience the beautiful landscapes, the architecture and art of our wonderful and unique country: ITALY. In 1978, RAI aired the full series. The same thing happened in the U.S., Germany, Australia, China and other networks of national importance. The series was distributed in schools, in 35mm and 16mm. In 1983 the publication of 16 illustrated volumes reproposed the series of films. The series ITALIA VISTA DAL CIELO (ITALY VIEW FROM THE SKY) obtained many awards and the great interest of the public has tributed to its remarkable success. The great Maestro Ennio Morricone was chosen to create the music for the movie SARDINIA. Through his innate and unique artistic sensibility, he composed tracks that reflect perfectly the mysterious and fascinating island. AN ORGAN IN THE WIND - To give form to a musical idea, very often, the composers focus their sensitive attention to some specific details that escape to most people, perhaps because of distraction or carelessness. In the title of this track we find something that is peculiar of the island of Sardinia: the wind. People familiar with Sardinia they also know that wind is a constant element, indispensable and integral part of all its territory. Ennio Morricone in creating this piece of music has emphasized this feature of the island without the assistance of pre-recorded sound effects, replacing the sound of the wind musically with a chorus of male and female. The track begins with an organ, which mimics the typical touch of Bach, but at the same time, the choir makes its way with deep notes, the main characteristic of the entire composition: the chorus of the wind. The two elements, the wind and the organ, seem to dance independently of each other, but this is only an impression as they are strongly interdependent. The result? A deep and powerful portrait of the rough landscape of Sardinia. Another feature of this natural and wonderful island are its cork forests near the sea. These forests stretch as far as the eye and it is strange to note that if we carefully examine the surroundings there is no sign of human life. These fascinating and disturbing places bring us back to the beginnings, to a wonderful old age, to the very birth of the world. The track TRA LA FORESTA E IL MARE (Between the forest and the sea) describes in a masterly way that state of mind. The desolation we feel at the beginning becomes a dance of birds and immediately after a solo harp accompanies a female voice that is heard in the distance. And all this happens in a surreal dream.

The Track SARDEGNA (Sardinia) is very simple and linear, but its clarity, serenity and dignity reflects the strong character, frank and confidential, that characterizes the Sardinian people. In SEGNI MISTERIOSI (Mysterious Signs) the composer pointed out the history, traditions and the mysterious Nuraghe of Sardinia. In this patient, painstaking work of musical construction, the extreme sensitivity of Maestro Morricone dealt with a much deeper musical speech than a simple description of a folk environment. He has built a musical discourse that goes beyond the simple soundtrack: he has dived in the true deep feelings of an entire people which dream, live and work in one of the major Italian Island.
