Product Description

Product Description

Yo-Yo Ma's first collaboration with acclaimed Italian film composer, Ennio Morricone. Features original cello & orchestra arrangements by Morricone of his most popular themes: "The Mission," "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," "Cinema Paradiso" and others.

Amazon.ca

Ennio Morricone is well-known to moviegoers. His soundtracks for The Mission, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in America, Cinema Paradiso, and others are invariably warmly melodic and superbly suited to the films they grace. They not only add atmosphere; they help tell the story. For this CD Morricone has created new orchestrations for many of his scores, adding a solo cello part for the indefatigable Yo-Yo Ma, whose musical curiosity seems to be endless. Outside the films, these pieces tend to be lovely melodies, mostly pretty sentimental stuff, and, in the best way, gorgeous aural wallpaper. The most moving are the two selections from The Mission, but fans of Morricone's music will find plenty to enjoy here. Ma's playing, as always, is exquisite---warm, deeply felt (given the circumstances), and entirely idiomatic within the context. Perhaps not quite for the classical music lover, but an affectionate reworking of music by an important film composer. --Robert Levine

Format: Audio CD
Dear fiends presented me with a copy of this compact disc. I played it immediately. We were stting down to a traditional candle lit Italian supper, complete with a fine Val Policella. She was hauntingly beautiful. She sat facing her husband...I was their host. About as good as it gets when you are a 77 year old Catholic Priest!

Though at a relatively low volume the music filled the room. It was non-intrusive yet still pervasive. The magic combination of Morricone and Ma can only be defined in terms of experience. As always, Yo-Yo Ma morphs, body and soul, into his instrument.

What a joy it must be for Ennio Morricone to hear his precious creations come alive
in this extraordinary recording!

My two year falls asleep to this cd. He asks for 'yoyoma' whenever he is upset. It is such a beautiful and moving cd. Every song is great. Enjoy!!!

This album turned out to be even better than I had imagined, (and who doesn't imagine great things coming from either of these two artists.) Morricone has arranged the music to freshly stage his own creations while weaving the genius of Yo-Yo Ma's interpretation on the cello. This arrangement more accurately demonstrates the incredible beauty of Ennio Morricone's music. Whenever I listen to this album, I truly feel I have died and gone to heaven.

My sister gave me this CD and I fell right in love with the CD! I have always loved the sound of a cello. The music is so haunting and to have Yo Yo Ma playing was the creme de la creme! The music moves the core of my soul and never fails to put me in a trance!
