Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone

Music CD - 2004

Listening to the music of Ennio Morricone is a joy for any music lover. Listening to his music as played by Yo-Yo Ma borders on the sublime. Morricone is an iconic film composer, a master melodist whose unique scores are characterized by his bold use of unusual musical techniques, sounds, and textures. The term ""spaghetti western"" would have less significance without his distinctive contributions. Yo-Yo Ma is a musician in a class by himself. He's an extraordinarily gifted cellist of enormous intellect and a fearless explorer of a broad musical landscape, who seems determined to prove that hardly any genre exists within which he can't excel."

Cellist Yo Yo Ma played many of the music pieces from films, all composed by Ennio Morricone. As with most CD's, I like some of the tunes, but not all. Performance is unquestionably good.

Godd CD though I would have liked to see more variety. Most of the songs come from a few movies.
