I had the opportunity of experiencing the legendary Ennio Morricone directing several of his classic musical masterpieces done for film. He visited my country (Mexico) last May and on the 29th he came to my city. Only one word could describe the show: "glorious". Or at least it was for me. Naturally, I nearly cried when "The Ecstasy of Gold", composed for Sergio Leone's 1966 classic "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" was played (and he played it one more time as an encore!), although I must admit that the best part was when the orchestra played music from "The Mission".
Bravo maestro! Glorious!
