Silva America once again has outdone themselves with "Film Music Masterworks by Ennio Morricone", all the splendor of this composer on 14 Tracks --- Morricone creates visual moods for each film he scores...action, adventure, mystery, romance, sentimental and suspense...the list could go on --- one could hold no other composer in higher esteem than Morricone --- Every track moves you --- Each cue comes back with a memory as the preceeding track ends --- It flows naturally and perfectly from track to track. Ennio Morricone ranks next to Bernard Herrmann in writing the perfect movie score --- If you're looking for a piece of music to capture your heart and a deeper meaning of the film...you've found it.

Ennio Morricone was born in Rome on October 11, 1928...attended the Santa Cecilia Conservatory...worked in various jazz bands, later a staff arranger and composer...an orchestrator in the '50s...scored films in the early '60s, then the WESTERNS and his name became a household word in the film industry ~ a new kind of western was on the horizon and Morricone was commissioned to score "A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS" [1964] for Sergio Leone featuring Clint Eastwood, spaghetti westerns were born ~ next "FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE" [1965] ~ and a bigger budget film "THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY" [1966], again featuring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and a third Eli Wallach whose performance was magical to watch on the big screen ~ violence and revenge gives Morricone an opportunity to feature electric guitars, flutes and jew's harp blending with a non lyrical chorus mixed with brass, strings, percussion with full orchestration that simply took your breath away...

I was given this CD as a gift by a friend. It's a good re-endition but it is not great. I'm a big fan of Morricone, and I grew up listening to his music, especially the Spaghetti Westerns (Fistful of Dollars, For Few Dollars More, Good, Bad, & Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West). While the Prague Philharmonic (under Derek Wadsworth and others) tries hard to perform a good cover of this music, I couldn't help but long for the original recordings which I own while I was listening to this CD. The only musical piece in this CD that the Prague Philharmonic does a commendable job of imitating is "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." I prefer the original work by Morricone for all the others. So, I have a difference of opinion with the other reviewer who liked this recording. I didn't like it as much as he did.

If you like Morricone's spaghetti westerns, I highly recommend you purchase Morricone's Legendary Westerns CD (which has the essential pieces from Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and Once Upon a Time in the West). The Once Upon a Time in the West soundtrack is also wonderful, with "Jill's Theme" and "The Man with the Harmonica" theme. Morricone's soundtrack to The Mission and The Untouchables are also readily available. Morricone also has an anthology of his film music available (even though it is a bit pricey). Morricone's re-endition is far superior than covers done by a different conductor & orchestra. You're far better off with sticking with Morricone's own versions -- no one can perform his music like the way he does.

1.0 out of 5 stars All these tracks are on Silva's 2004 release. April 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Pass on this and pick up Once Upon a Time: The Essential Ennio Morricone

It has all these recordings and more. You get much more for your $$ on Silva's previous release.
