highly recommended.

this is one of the BEST cds i have bought, ever. two amazing musicians on one album... classic film scores composed by ennio morricone combined with the luscious, textural tones of yo-yo ma on the cello.

From The Mission : Gabriel's Oboe and The Falls.

From The Good, The Bad and The Ugly : The Ecstasy of Gold.

a few years after buying this, i still listen to it on quiet nights... the orchestral pieces are at once passionate, haunting and so beautiful. pity i can't locate the cd now, but thankfully i still have the mp3s.

sounds morbid but i really hope ennio morricone doesn't leave the earth before i get the chance to watch him in concert!
