His roots

When you get deep into Morricone, this is a logical step. He draws from so many genres, but here you get a glimpse of what he loves about some classical violin concertos - with a touch of Baroque splashed around in there to round out the melodrama just so...! I didn't actually hear a harpsichord, but at times I heard something that was darn close. If you're reading this then you're already there. I'm always interested in sussing out artist's sources of inspiration. He is agile, I'll give him that.

Masterpiece

One of the best soundtrack I have ever listened to; this album is literally a gem. It reflects the major classical influence of maestro Morricone, who is also known simply as 'Maestro', a well deserved title.

This album is a must-have for anyone passionate about soundtrack music and who loves classical style. The Capriccio 'la caccia' is very joyful and it really conveys the idea of a small little battle, made on bow's whips. It reminds a Paganini style with all the involved virtuosism.

The main theme (the canone inverso) is an enchanted masterpiece and the complete album contains two versions of it; one where the two voices are played by two violins, another where all the music is for orchestra and an instrument which resembles a harpsichord, as pointed out in the other review.

Also, I agree with the mention touch of Baroque previously noticed.

The track called 'piccoli studi' is a duo (violin-pianoforte) which is richer version of 'goliardi', played on a lower tonality. The main voice is played by the violin, whereas the piano is not limited simply to emphasize the harmonics, but also re-echoes the main phrases. Nevertheless, the piece is meant mainly for a violin solo and greatly extends the theme of 'goliardi'.

As a final track, the duo-version of the main theme (it seems to me it was exactly the same partiture of the movie) for only violins is presented.

A real modern masterpiece.

Violin love fest

If ever there was a love letter for the violin - this is it. Listening to "Making Love no. 1" for weeks and it gives me chills every single time. Had to.buy the whole album

Ennio Morricone is probably the most famous film composer of the 20th century. He is also one of the most prolific composers working in any medium. No exact figure is available, but he's scored several hundred films over several decades, perhaps as many as 500. While these have been in almost every imaginable musical style (and for almost every imaginable kind of movie), he is most identified with the "spaghetti Western" style of soundtracks, which he pioneered when providing the musical backdrop...
