iTunes Review

Ennio Morricone’s musical scores have added suspense and drama to dozens of American and Italian films, including his soundtracks to the "Spaghetti Westerns" of the '60s. For this collaboration, Morricone not only re-orchestrated his own music, but also conducted and produced it. This album opens with the timeless melody of “Gabriel’s Oboe” from The Mission, this time heard in the rich, full voice of Ma’s cello. The “Ecstasy of Gold” theme from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly evokes the vast desert horizons of the classic western atmosphere. Throughout, Yo-Yo Ma’s knack for precise, romantic playing is front and center.

I bought the entire album after I read the reviews. The music is simply beautiful and well done but when the songs end abruptly and start abruptly it's like enjoying a passionate kiss and suddenly being kicked in the balls.

Ma was born in Paris and, as the child of two musicians, naturally began music lessons very early, trying piano and all the string instruments before settling on cello. His first public performance...
