    Quite possibly. He’s scored several commercials for D&G over the last few years (directed, unlike this one, by Tornatore). Those were so lushly-scored I’ve really hoped they may get released as download singles (but none of them has).


    Well, I don't like it too much, but no matter. If the maestro is fine with it then I am fine with him being fine with it. smile
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    Well, I remember the infamous ´Remix´ albums approved by the maestro.
  2. I do like the album "We all love Morricone", but this is a compilation of new recordings and interpretations (mostly) and not remixes.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    I was wondering, what is everyone personal worst Morricone score?

    IL Fiore Delle Mille E Una Notte immediately springs to mind, while I am also thinking about several fluffy, harpsichord-flavored (romantic) comedies....

    I actually kinda like those.

    What I DON'T like are his abrasive, dissonant affairs. I like a great deal of dissonant music, but not Morricone's kind, for some reason. It's just irritating. Stuff like HAMLET, WOLF etc.
    I am extremely serious.
  3. To be honest, I'm only familiar with a small fraction of his work, given his enormous output. There is quite a lot of his music that I don't like, though. Much of it is too unpleasant/experimental for my taste. I'm a simple man and like my music to be tonal, easily digestible, and pretty (and boy has he written some wonderful music in that vein). I'm sure there are a lot of his scores that I would dislike if I knew more of them, but I've only really invested time in his music that I've heard recommended by a lot of people, so I can't say that there's any album from him that I would say I dislike as a whole. Of the ones I do know, I would be least interested in returning to LA MIGLIORE OFFERTA, but I wouldn't say it's bad or that I dislike it as a whole. I just wasn't wild about it.
  4. I've not heard many Morricone scores but probably my least favorite of those I have is his Hamlet.

    I kind of feel his dissonant music is just as, yes, varied in its degree of quality, as any other kind of music. The more experimental, the more I tend to like it, but it also has to do with what else the scores has to offer.

    Last night, Mrs. Birri and I prepared for dinner linguine with vegetarian white clam sauce, with oyster and trumpet mushrooms in the role of the clams. We paired it with Morricone's 1968 masterpiece ""Scusi, Facciamo L'Amore?" I LOVE that album!
  5. Oh, I love that recipe and make it all the time! If it's like mine, it's the one with arame and nutritional yeast? My husband grows culinary mushrooms in our basement during the winter months and I usually make it with Lion's Mane mushrooms and they absorb all the yummy flavor! Molto bene!

    Ours is an improvised recipe. We basically sauté the shrooms in olive oil with garlic and onion. To add some faux seafood flavor, we add Old Bay seasoning, organic kelp granules, and organic dulse.

    I have been vegetarian since the mid-1980s. I think the one dish that would tempt me would be actual linguine with white clam sauce. My mom used to cook this often for dinner on Saturday night. It brings back great memories.

    Not sure I'm familiar with Lion's Mane mushrooms. Do they have a seafood-ish quality?
  6. I was actually born and raised a vegetarian, so have been one all my life - which means unfortunately I can't really tell you if the Lion's Mane has a seafood quality or not, but they have long separated teeth that each absorb sauce flavors really well, so you can really taste all the white wine, seaweed, and seasonings etc. extra with each bite which makes it super yummy! smile We should share some favorite recipes sometime! I'm always looking for new recipes to try!

    Would be happy to!

    I know there is a whole question about vegetarians eating faux meat, which I suppose this recipe falls under. But I can appreciate this dish both on its own terms and also as a made-for-TV version of the real deal. wink
  7. It's different for everyone and dependent on what you like eating, used to eat or miss eating, haha. But I personally don't think your recipe counts as faux meat because mushrooms are natural whole foods, but if it used some processed veggie meat substitute then I might consider it. smile

    And a good favourite it is. Excellent score.
    I am extremely serious.
  8. Which such high praise, sounds like one I definitely need to hear!

    I have more scores by Morricone than any other composer, probably close to 100. Ms. Birri and I have been listening to Morricone since we got together in the 1990s. He has long been an essential part of our life.

    Thanks for all the amazing music.

    Thanks for all the Morricone reviews Joep.

    Secret of the Sahara is also a favourite of mine, I think I got to know it via you!

    Yes, you did. I still buy extra copies of a variety of (Morricone) score releases, and in these last couple of days, it has begam to pay off. But I must admit, giving someone a badge that represents the wide range of Morricone, is not something I am likely to survive. For example, I presented someone with following badge:
    La Cosa Buffa (boring work with 100 variations on the same theme), the great Il Segreto del Sahara, the experimental, psychedelic Una Lucertola Con La Pelle Di Donna, the infamous organ score Il Fiore Delle Mille E Una Notte (one of his worst) and the inspiring Carel Kraayenhof - Guardians of the Clouds.

    I hope to publish a couple of dozen of reviews soon, something which I wanted to do a year ago.
