I've done this before; purchased an album on the strength of one track, and in almost every sodding case the rest of the album has been complete pig swill, except for `Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone`.
If you're a lover of sweeping, lachrymose, tragedian pieces then I urge you to give this album a whack - it'll make you cry. Awesome, awesome, totally awesome tracks, all from the mastermind of film music that is Ennio Morricone. As a writer myself, listening to this album fills me with visions and inspiration that see me whipping out a pen and pad to scribble them down fast lest I forget them, but too, so I can quickly get back to listening to the music.
When I first listened to this album, I was so impressed that I had to listen to it all over again. I ended up passing an entire Sunday afternoon listening to the same album five times in a row. I was delirious!
I collect multi channel SACD's ( the best format to listen to music ! ) and came across this title. I had never heard anything by Yo Yo Ma before.
All i can say is, this is one of the most beautiful SACD's i've ever heard. There's not too many pieces of music that brings me to tears, but this does everytime.
I think Yo Yo Ma is an amazing cellist / talent. Combine that with one of the greatest composers ever, ( I come to this judgement, purely on the basis of this disc. ) and you have something that is trully wonderful !
Has to be in my all time top 10 favouriteS. I own very little in the way of soundtracks or classical music, but this is a disc that everyone should have in their collection, regardless of their musical tastes. I defy anyone not to like this....it's simply a thing of sheer beauty !
The music? Well it's good of course. A bit throbby and over-emotive in some places for my taste, but there are some cracking pieces - I particularly liked the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Grand stuff, Yo Yo Ma must've tied himself in knots doing that bit.
Although, to be frank, I did prefer the Spaghetti Western Orchestra's take on Morricone when they played the Festival Hall a few years back. Hilarious, evocative, and no throbbing either.
Must go. Husband is now listening to Madam Butterfly. Oh dear.
