Music – The Ecstasy of Gold

For some reason, it seems to me at least that a work such as this is even more powerful and stirring in live performance with orchestra, chorus and soprano (Susanna Rigacci, I think) with the master himself conducting...


  1. Ah yes! This is a wonderful rendition by the stunning Susanna Rigacci. One of my favourite pieces. Beautiful!

  2. Ah. Thought this was a reference to the Spandau Ballet song.. ;)

  3. Thank you to both. Yes, it is a truly excellent performance of what is one of Morricone's most evocative and emotionally-charged pieces – nothing to do with Spandau Ballet, though(!)
