Sure to remain a top seller on the classical charts for some time to come, Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone is a new installment in the great cellist's long series of Ennio Morricone - Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone albums. It diverges from most of the others, however, in its collaborative aspect: the music's original creator, Morriconehad Скит - Овраг Подпольщиков - Овраглэнд much to do with this album as did Ma and his creative team.
Morricone 's career in film music began during the era of the spaghetti Western in the s and has flourished ever since, on both sides of the Atlantic. They hatched the idea for this album together, and all the adaptations of Morricone 's music are his own. He also conducts the Roma Sinfonietta Orchestra. Overall, the results are gorgeous. Morricone opens and closes the album with pairs of excerpts from two individual films, The Mission and the rarely seen The Lady Caliph.
Morbid Horror - Serpent Obscene - Serpent Obscene between are four suites of excerpts, three of them associated with Morricone 's favorite directorial collaborators Sergio Leone, Brian de Palma, and Tornatore.
These suites, comprising varied but closely related stretches of music, really allow Ma to go to town. He has rarely achieved a more lushly beautiful tone or a more direct emotional appeal. Morricone deftly adapts his music for the cello-and-orchestra combination.
At different times, Ma 's cello plays the role of another solo instrument the pan pipes in the Mission score, for instancesings the wordless vocal lines that populate many of Morricone 's scores, or plays lines of orchestral counterpoint that are elaborated into some pretty fancy fingerwork. The only complaints pertain to the selection of music, and it's debatable whether there's really anything to complain about.
Represented here are Morricone 's big, romantic scores, mostly of fairly recent vintage. Cinema Paradiso, two cues from which are included, is an example casual filmgoers may be acquainted with. The edgier, more experimental scores Morricone wrote for Western and suspense films are ignored, and Ennio Morricone - Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone was these that endeared the composer to scenesters like Cinema Paradiso: Looking For You - Yo-Yo Ma Zornwho recorded a memorable deconstruction of The Big Gundown some years ago.
On the few tracks where electronic elements are introduced, they aren't well integrated into the general concept. As a whole, though, the album hangs together wonderfully, and the music can stand up to anything in the current neo-Romantic rage.
Play the "Cockeye's Song" cue from Once Upon a Time in America for classical purists unfamiliar with Morriconeand ask them to guess the composer. Watch them squirm. And then introduce one of the great composers of our time, presented by one of our foremost interpreters.
