Ennio Morricone: Yo-Yo Ma Is Featured Cellist

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 MorriconeYo-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.
