Ennio Morricone is a prolific composer of soundtrack movie music, and one of my favorite recordings includes many of his compositions from Once Upon A Time In America and Once Upon A Time In The West. The featured recording this week is titled, Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone. Yo-Yo Ma adds value to anything he plays, and he does a stellar job with this beautiful music.
There are a number of options available on Amazon under this title, so be sure to select the one you want. One of the reviewers recommends a recording of The Geisha. There is no such recording on the copy I have. Instead, look for a recording of Gabriel's Oboe. It is stunning and I have used it in slide shows.
Last fall I recommended We All Love Ennio Morricone in this blog post. Check it out.
