The Legend of 1900: The Crave

In the movie The Legend of 1900, the fictional Jelly Roll Morton, a New Orleans jazz fame comes aboard S.S Virginia to challenge 1900 to a piano duel. 1900 merely toys with the hot-tempered Morton, going so far as to play a note-for-note version of an original tune Morton just played---The Crave.

About The Movie

The Legend of 1900 (original title La Leggenda del Pianista sull'Oceano) is a 1998 film featuring Tim Roth and directed by the Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore. The film is inspired by a theatre monologue, Novecento, by Alessandro Baricco. The film begins with Max Tooney (Pruitt Taylor Vince) entering an antique shop just after World War II for the purpose of pawning his trumpet. He asks if he can play it one last time, and proceeds to play a piece that the shopkeeper (Peter Vaughan) recognizes from a broken record master he found inside a recently-acquired second-hand piano. He asks who had written and played the music, henceforth begins an unknown tale of a reincarnation of Amadeus.

Does anyone know who actually played the piano pieces for the lead character?

The artist who played the music in this movie was Ennio Morricone. The soundtrack is available on iTunes.

But thank you so much for making "The Crave" sheet music available to all of us! I couldn't find it anywhere!

It is difficult to believe that Morricone played the music for 1900 as he was a trumpet player. Can anyone shed light as to who really played the piano in 1900?
