Ennio Morricone at Radio City Music Hall
Last night, I was lucky enough to go to the North American debut of famous soundtrack composer and pending honorary Acadamy Award recipient Ennio Morricone. Performing with him was the Roma Simfonietta and a chorus of about 100 singers. They played a lot of his "greatest hits" including music from The Mission, The Untouchables, and The Sicilian Clan. However, by far, the highlight of the evening was his medley of music from the westerns of Sergio Leone.
