WHY? by Godwin Borg (January 1, 2005)
Out of the many hundreds of scores comppsed by Maestro ENNIO MORRICONE I Bambini (Figli) Chiedono Perche (transl. "Our Children ask us why") is one the most heart wrenching scores I've ever heard. The movie itself is quite sad but the score is even sadder (if possible!). The themes on this recording have all of Morricone's romaticism and mencholic spirit and still there are moments of hope in the score (more precisely in the closing track "Finale") The score is a real gem and in its genre it's hard to equal! just like it's composer! Once again BRAVO MAESTRO!!! May you live another 75 years!
