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.
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

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!

A beautiful recording and enjoyed very much. The choice of music and the exquisite playing was "music" to the ears.Published 21 months ago by Joan Hammond
