I can’t stop listening to this: Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone, the 2004 album in which the world-famous cellist collaborated with the world-famous movie soundtrack composer and conductor. Both artists are lyrical, expressive, and emotional. Together, they have left me crumpled in a puddle of tears. Ah, the sweet sorrow of life, with happiness always poking up onto it, as Kermit would put it.
Just get your knitting—preferably something in a superwash—and let the tears roll down, internally or externally, while you listen.
The world is lucky to have these two.
P.S. Here’s a fun piece on Maestro Morricone: “A Fistful of Movie Scores.”
