Didn't Morricone do well?
I remember when they just had a chipper in the Farm.

Indeed, the thing about him was that he was always on the lookout for a few dollars more. Once upon a time in America he was caught in the line of fire and witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly side of life. The mission he then set himself was to live a life less frantic, so living in Italy seemed like the best offer and he preferred a small hamlet where everybodys fine all the time.

Thanks, Rocker and Toss.

Happy to give a report on Ennio Morricone......

Yes what a wonderfully talented and resilient man.
My apologies for my tardiness in reporting.
Well, the evening began with an Italian chap making rear contact with my car, in the car park just before the concert. The concert went with a similar loud bang but was such a melodious noise, in huge contrast with the metal upon plastic of automobiles.

I enjoy music from The Beatles, AC/DC and new music from artists such as SOAK (from Derry) but
this was an epic experience.

Gabriels Oboe was greeted with delight by all........Mission accomplished.
The Man With The Harmonica, The Ecstasy of Gold............sublime listening and a thrill to the ear!
The Untouchables tune reminded me of one of my favourite films and picturing Séan Connery when he grunted after the completion duty.............Congratulations, you just fulfilled the first rule of law enforcement......make sure when your shift is over is you go home alive! Here endeth the lesson..........in the 3 Arena the lesson was orchestral!
The 3 Arena was alive.......due to the still youthful exuberance of the 90-year-old Roman Music God!

No seriously, the orchestra was an absolute delight and he conducted his greats......The Good the Bad and The Ugly......and The Czech National Symphony Orchestra was superb.

The programme was written in Italian and in English. The Soprano, Susanna Rigacci was captivating and note perfect.
The other soloist was Dulce Pontes, what a superb vocalist.
The Maestro was called for 3 encores and some 'impatients' left early and missed possibly the last time Morricone would grace our shores.

Highlight......The Ecstasy of Gold................solid gold.

Great review, thanks GT.

I had a spy at Hans Zimmer last night ....... very interesting format as Mr Zimmer was on a 'live' feed from the USA and basically just did the MC role over the internet ! the live musicians were great as you would expect, but paying €80 to see a net stream is a joke as far as Im concerned.

Well, if I was at a quiz and I was asked who is Hans Zimmer, I’d have said he makes frames for feeble folk thummbs Never heard of him hmm

Any new music recommendations Toss ?

I could never understand why his mouth always looks contorted when he speaks and sings . It’s like he’s trying to impersonate someone else .
I prefer Hugh Jackman’s version but agree Colm W has a great voice for his age .
