This compilation is culled from the famous Ennio Morricone io sessions that he did with his son Andrea in 2002 at the Santa Cecilia concert hall in Roma. CD1 is devoted to his film music, which he specially arranged for this recording. It features a selection of themes orchestrated for a variety of ensembles, from duos to quartets to full string orchestras. The disc also includes bonus tracks not included in the io box set. CD2 features pieces performed by Gilda Butta, the virtuoso performer of “The legend of the pianist on the ocean,” and Morricone‘s favorite pianist. The disc includes his famous scores arranged for piano only, and new themes which have no link at all with original score.
