Il Volo Sings Morricone


Composer: Ennio Morricone
Performed by: Il Volvo
Label: Sony Masterworks
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 05 November 2021

Italian trio Il Volvo releases their new album Il Volo Sings Morricone. Endorsed by Ennio Morricone’s family, the album is a dedication to the beloved Maestro and and represents a journey through the art and music of one of the greatest composers of the 20th century...

Il Volo Sings Morricone contains 14 songs (56 min, 31 sec) that recall the Maestro’s legendary melodies from 'The Ecstasy of Gold' (from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly), featuring new lyrics written specifically for the trio by Ennio Morricone’s son, Andrea Morricone to 'Your Love' (from Once Upon a Time in the West). Another highlight is 'I colori dell’amore' ('The Colors of Love'), an unreleased track composed by Andrea for the trio. Also included on the album is 'E più ti penso' ('The More I Think of You'), a medley of Ennio Morricone’s scores from the films Once Upon a Time in America and Malèna.

Il Volo perform flawlessly on this album and the majority of the tracks work incredibly well. Personal favourites include 'Nella fantasia' feat Andrea Griminelli (from Mission) and 'La Califfa' feat. David Garrett (from Lady Caliph).

While it helps to be a fan of Morricone's work, it's not essential, as Il Volo's followers will get swept up in the trio's wonderful performances.
