Any lovers of violin and cello music out there? The title cut from this soundtrack CD, "L' Avventuriero pt. 1", is 4 min. and 51 sec. of string music supreme. Buried in an obscure and admittedly poor film from 1967, this marvelous track not only does not deserve to stay in the dark, but could be an all time favorite of many, if only they knew it was out there. It is a gem from composer Ennio Morricone, the talent behind hundreds of film scores. I had only heard "covers" of it through the years, but now the original soundtrack is available as Morricone's music is exploding in popularity. This original recording is far superior to any of the remixes. Unlike many classical or opera scores where you may need to wait for that sweet 30 sec. in the middle or end, every note here is memorable, building up to full orchestration. Absolutely excellent.
L' Avventuriero pt. 2 and 3 are also on the disc and well worth a listen. The rest are pretty obscure, so for about $13 you get one great track, one very good (pt.2), and one nice. You could do worse.
I have always wanted tips from others on great pieces of music, particularly for strings and oboe. It's hard to know where to find the ones you like and then you may only like parts of them. So here's a tip that just might make your day. It sounded the best on my system in the "unplugged" mode.
Available mostly online at Barnes and Noble or Amazon. I haven't seen it in any store.
