Ennio Morricone's concert

I have enjoyed very much the concert master Ennio Morricone gave for end year's day in Rome.
I like very much soundtracks, especially from those great composers such as Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, James Horner.
These 4 persons have written most of the soundtracks of the major movies around in the last 10-15 (if not more) years: quite amazing.
While listening to the concert, I was thinking of the privilege that the orchestra has to play and to be directed by the composer itself: not an interpretation, but the composer himself that tells "I want it this way".

If you like listening music during Java programming, I recommend to buy some soundtrack by those 4 guys: you won't be disappointed.


  • Odd that you said this. I own several soundtracks that I listen to while I work, and I really like Ennio Morricone. I first heard his music on the sound track of a great Marlon Brando film called "Burn!" and I was determined to track down who composed it. A couple of other sound tracks I like:
    Event Horizon (Michael Kamen and Orbital)
    Ocean's Twelve (most of it, David Holmes)
    Traffic (Cliff Martinez etc.)
