I'm in section 10.

Last time in 2007 at RCMH, I was in the 5th row just in front of Susanna.

Too close though to get the full view of the orchestra and choir.


Title: Re: Morricone at Barclay's Center, NYC
Post by: drinkanddestroy on October 25, 2013, 10:16:30 AM
I'm excited about my seats - sec. 15 row 2

I sure hope he doesn't use Susanna Rigacci. That woman is absolutely awful. That's one reason I have a hard time watching some of his clips in YouTube, cuz I cant stand Rigacci.

I emailed Max Gallotta and asked what soprano will be performing. God, I hope its anyone but Rigacci.

Post by: drinkanddestroy on October 25, 2013, 10:21:47 AM
Which non-Leone film scores does Morricone usually perform at his concerts?

I've seen Cinema Paradiso and The Battle of Algiers. I still have to watch The Mission (and no, I will NOT watch the rest of Malena; I watched the first hour or so and it was awful). Otherwise, what non-Leone scores does he usually play at his concerts? I wanna be sure to know every song he'll play there.

And how long are his concerts usually? I assume about 2 hours?

Here is his setlist from last August:

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/ennio-morricone/2013/arena-di-verona-verona-italy-63c6724f.html

In 2007 it was about 2 hours...

*Note he may not play Sacco and Vanzetti's Here's to you. Their execution is still a touchy subject in the USA.
It wasn't played at RCMH.

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/ennio-morricone/2013/arena-di-verona-verona-italy-63c6724f.html

In 2007 it was about 2 hours...

can someone translate the setlist into English? I understand the Leone movies and some others, but there are quite a few that I don't. Thanks.

Looks to me like there isn't a single song on this setlist from OUATIA? And there's nothing from FOD or FAFDM???? God I hope this is not the setlist he uses at Barclay's. (I mean, in a perfect world I'd love for him to do every song he ever made for Leone, but realistically,) I hope he'd do at least one song from each of the Leone movies, and multiple songs from a few.

I guess we'll have to see if we can get his setlists from the shows he does shortly before this one. Does he usually play a similar setlist or does it vary widely?

I hope I can get some video of this event afterward... if no official video, I hope at least there would be a bootleg somewhere....

You can hear an excerpt from the tune by clicking on the arrow, next to the title.
From the 2007 concert and all the videos I've seen:

There is a 4 tune Leone medley. (TGTBATU, OUATITW, DYS and Ectasy of gold)
There is 2 from OUATIA
An extended Cinema Paradiso medley.
The Mission medley.

You may not know the others.

Abolisson from the Marlon Brando movie Burn!, was my personal discovery from the 2007 concert.
The tune really stays with you.

Finally none from FOD, FAFDM and My name is Nobody.
At his age, I don't think he'll change an already winning formula.

It's very similar to what he played in Paris 10 years ago. The first part ended with L'Estasi dell'Oro, which wa amazing. The second half was a bit weaker but still huge.

Ufff... that's it. The encores were:

1. Once upon a time in America (Deborah's theme)
2. The good, the bad and the ugly (The Ecstasy of Gold)
3. Mission (On Earth as it is in Heaven)


It was monumental. And as you can see, a really long concert, three hours (ok, there was a 20-30 min intermission). Just like with user 'Sean Sean Sean', I was very impressed with "Abolição" (Abolisson). I cannot describe how powerful it sounded live - the cool intro... the powerful choir... and then when you think it's over, the short reprise bit... it is the piece that impressed me the most from that evening's concert. Play it loud: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHW4Wm8eR78

P.S. there are only few vids (quite bad quality) from the Belgrade concert on Youtube, and one of them is my "Abolição"! It goes without saying that the sound in the Arena was much, much better than presented on this vid, but it's all there is I'm afraid - better than nothing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQNrmU3QBr8

My fav live version is from Prague 2011 - it's a crappy audience vid, BUT what a great moment, check it out; during the build-up the crowd starts clapping in rhythm, and just before the crescendo you can see Morricone turning to the crowd to stop them for a moment, and then when the reprise bit kicks in afterwards, he turns again and motions them to continue - it was such a 'Radetzky march at the Vienna New Year Concert' moment, but completely ad hoc!

@ Novocento, probably but I don't speak portuguese.

If any of you still need a little coaxing to attend this concert, here is defenitly a high point, the Leone spaghetti western medley:

OUATITW, DYS and the Ecstasy of gold ...

I am extremely distraught over the possibility that I will be in the same room as Susanna Rigacci. How can a man that is such a brilliant musician use a soprano that is so bad? I mean, how do you go from Edda Del'orso to THAT? I mean, listen ti Carla Mafioletti in this performance of OUATITW by Andre Reiu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzmfvRbSPuU (which I have shared on this site before). Is Rigacci even in the same universe as Mafioletti?
This 15-year old Czech girl Patricia Janeckova is unfrigginbelievable too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEpFQOezabo (is she even a soprano? wtf do I know about music?) all i know is Susanna Rigacci is awful

alright, alright, I guess I'm just gonna have to resign myself to Que Sera Sera and get excited for this show and whatever will be will be

Post by: SeanSeanSean on October 29, 2013, 08:54:32 AM
I thought the same about Susanna at first, but seeing Morricone perform his work in person is overwhelming to a true fan.

Note:
In 2007 she was on stage for only the Leone westerns medley, 3 tunes out of more than 20.
She came back for one of the 3 encores for Ecstasy of Gold.


Title: Re: Morricone at Barclay's Center, NYC
Post by: SeanSeanSean on November 01, 2013, 08:32:22 AM
In 2007, Morricone only played the Untouchables' main title.
Now it would seem, he has made a medley of it.
I hope this is what we get in Brooklin.
Just love the haunting Death theme.

Or, run trhough the concert videos on YouTube and appreciate the music for what it is or its execution. It is fascinating to wacht a full concert orchestra at play.
The movies themselves are not all Oscar worthy.
Not to worry, more than half the concert will be of work you'll easily recognize.

BTW There are more than 600 views of this post, hope most of these people go to the concert. I received my ticket by mail last Friday.

as of now, I believe you and I are the only ones on these boards with tixx for the Barclay's Center... unless someone else here is going but didn't mention it. There are a few members in the Northeast; so I hope some more will decide to go within the next 5 months.

It was precisely Sandra, the choir member who alerted me a few months ago of the upcoming US Morricone concerts.

I was sending her information on the release of the UN concert from 2007 in which she took part, the same orchestra and choir who played RCMH for us the following night.

According to Susanna Rigacci's website, she was on stage with Ennio no later than last night in Kiev.
She has done every concert since Ennio started touring in 2002, so expect her in NY and LA.

After a while, you get use to her rendition...

"I was sending her information on the release of the UN concert from 2007 in which she took part, the same orchestra and choir who played RCMH for us the following night."

- yes, and I gotta thank you for that info (I believe you posted it in one of the threads here); until then I thought I had all of his official pro-shot concert videos - Verona 2002, Munich 2004, Venice 2007 (box set), so this was a nice find!

Btw, here are the first reports (in russian) from yesterday's concert, some nice fotos:

http://ru.tsn.ua/foto/legendarnogo-ennio-morrikone-v-kieve-nagradili-medalyu-nacionalnoy-muzykalnoy-akademii-331429.html

It says the concert was more than two hours long, no intermission, they praise Morricone's stamina who went backstage just for a couple of minutes - managing probably to have only a sip of water.

They praise Rigacci as well.  >:D

@ Milan

Yes, the UN video is nice but a little short compared to the others you and I have.
But having seen this orchestra in person it has a special meaning for me.

With Google translation, the articles also mentioned how packed the hall was with people having to sit in the aisles.

BTW Are you going to one of the US concerts?


Title: Re: Morricone at Barclay's Center, NYC
Post by: Milan NS on November 05, 2013, 12:42:49 PM
No, I'm afraid not; I'm in Europe you see, never been to the US in my life... that EM concert I went to was in Belgrade, capital of my country (Serbia). He's so close this time (Bulgaria in december and Hungary in february), but I don't have the time or money to travel at the moment... oh well... I thank God on my knees that at least I got to see him that one time though.

How 'bout you? This will be your second EM concert, but will you be going to both US gigs?

Los Angeles is too far, across the continent and I don't see the point to have repeat concerts.

thanks for sharing!

Did Morricone actually compose any new music for Kill Bill 2, or did Tarantino just take some of Morricone's music from Leone movies?

you know how Ticketmaster makes you enter a security code to make sure you're not an automated ticket-purchaser?

Well now, before you can enter the security code, they force you sit through a video ad, and then only reveal the code at the end of the ad... So the bastards have found a way to force you to sit through annoying ads  >:D

I may be mixing up the films here but as I remember, Morricone was supposed to compose new music for Kill Bill 2, but then when it was decided that the movie had to be finished for Cannes he told QT he wouldn't make it in such a shot amount of time. So Tarantino used some of Ennio's old scores. Apart from "Il Tramonto" that is quite distracting, he actually did a good job with it. The music from FoD works very well and "L'arena" and "A Silhouette of Doom" perfectly blend with their respective scene.

The only time Morricone actually composed something for Tarantino was "Ancora Qui" for Django.

Post by: drinkanddestroy on November 12, 2013, 03:43:29 PM
yeah I was asking cuz that ad you posted on YouTube lists Kill Bill 2.

I've never seen that movie, but I remember that in a discussion about Morricone's music and how much Tarantino liked it, Frayling once said, "When I watched Kill Bill, I thought Quentin Tarantinto had stolen my record collection."

(btw, it must be quite a collection, eh?  ;) )

The Barclay's center appears to be a stadium so as you would for Metallica is OK.
Had he been at Carnegie Hall,  a dresseir look might be more appropriate.
The important thing is to dress comfortably because stadium seats aren't the most comfortable for long periods. IMHO.

The Barclays Center has a big indoor main arena (probably around 20,000 seats, for basketball games and other major events, etc.), but this event is not in that arena. This event is in the Cushman Wakefield Theater, which is a smaller theater inside the Barclays Center, probably with just a few thousand seats.

In all the YouTube clips I've seen of his concert performances, I don't think I've ever seen him perform any music from FOD or FAFDM. I really wish he would (heck, I wish he would perform ALL his Leone music at his concerts!) so, should the fact that he plays it in Germany mean that he may play it in Brooklyn?

I also think the main theme in MNIN, the opening credits song, is really cool, and I'd love to hear that, but I wouldn't expect that - I guess maybe he'd feel that song is too comical or jokey for a concert. But I'd definitely love to hear him play the music from FOD and FAFDM in addition to the music from the other Leone movies that he plays

The second vid is there just to annoy you with Rigacci  >:D


you know, a little while ago I said I was gonna stop talking about how much I hate Rigacci; I understand that he uses her on his concerts and that's all there is to it, I am gonna have to forget about it and no use repeating myself in constantly bashing her. But now that you brought it up, I got irritated all over again  >:D yes, watching her ruined whatever good mood those videos put me in. Yes, she is that bad. She completely, 100%, literally, ruins the song for me. Sad thing is, the only songs she sings by are the Leone songs. Which means that, while the Leone songs excite me most in all of Morricone's repertoire, they're actually the songs I LEAST look forward to in his live shows, because of her. I mean, the songs go from being my favorite in the world to being my worst. I guess she sings 3 songs: the main themes to DYS and OUATITW, and The Ecstasy of Gold. Three amazing songs, rendered shit for me.

HOW CAN SUCH A BRILLIANT COMPOSER ALLOW SUCH A PIECE OF SHIT TO RUIN HIS SONGS??? I have a theory, maybe he Morricone is banging that enormous ass. Rigacci's looks are as repulsive as her voice, but she's still probably 40 years younger than Morricone and maybe their paths crossed somehow and she got it up for him and he knows that she's his only chance at middle-aged ass, no matter how big and disgusting it is, so she goes on tour for him and is his own personal groupie backstage.

..................... The Los Angeles show is a few days before the Brooklyn one, so based on the reports from LA, we'll know what the (approximate) setlist will be in Brooklyn, and whether or not Rigacci is gracing America with her presence.... I am praying that he succeeds in impregnating her and she goes into labor just before the Brooklyn show and can't perform. I just pity the nurse that has to do that delivery; imagine Rigacci screaming in your ear for all those hours? A NAKED RIGACCI SCREAMING???? Like a Chinese torture.

 >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D


Do you see what I mean, Milan NS? For my sake, [and for everyone's sake  ;) ] don't mention Rigacci again. Unless you wanna read this monologue again. No, there's nothing staged here. It just gets me so fucking irritated, I get high blood pressure for an hour after her name is mentioned...

p.s. Susanna Rigacci is the devil  >:D >:D

p.p.s. Susanna Rigacci is the devil  >:D >:D >:D

p.p.p.s. if they ever made a Johnny Guitar remake (maybe a "Johnny Trumpet")  Mercedes Macmbridge and Joan Crawford are dead, they can use Susanna Rigacci. She is 2 ugly women in one.

So wait, let's get this clear: you don't like her then?  ???

 :D ;D

"but she's still probably 40 years younger than Morricone"

32 years younger... her wiki page says she was born in 1960.

Ok, I'll shut up about her... check out this pro-shot video of the 27 may 2000 concert in Poland when he was banging a different soprano, Orietta Manente - here's DYS & EoG from the Leone segment, now how 'bout that:

According to Susanna Rigacci's website, she was on stage with Ennio no later than last night in Kiev.
She has done every concert since Ennio started touring in 2002, so expect her in NY and LA.


http://www.susannarigacci.com/

After a while, you get use to her rendition...

well Rigacci didn't do those shows in Warsaw that Milan NS linked to in the previous post

btw, that Polish soprano wasn't very good herself, but I can live with anyone but Rigacci

(and on the rare occasions I do watch a vid with her... I pity the poor violinist that has to sit behind that ass of hers)

ENNIO MORRICONE POSTPONES CONCERTS IN U.S. TO JUNE 2014
It is with great disappointment that the management of Maestro Ennio Morricone has to announce that the forthcoming concerts in America, dated March 20 and 23, have to be postponed to June 13 in New York and June 15 in Los Angeles, following medical advice after a recent successful back procedure.
 
"Dear Friends, I am so sad to let you down, but having just had surgery on February 20, my doctors have given me strict instructions not to fly long distances in the immediate future to ensure a full recovery. I had hoped that they would change their minds, but I regret they have been insistent. I look forward to seeing you in June." Ennio Morricone, Rome.

At least it's not cancelled. Three more months for you, my American friends...

Bit longer announcement than the one posted on the previous page by SSS:

“Dear Friends, it saddens me deeply to have to postpone these concerts. I am very much looking forward to my first Los Angeles performance and only my second New York City performance, both of which are almost sold out. Hollywood has been instrumental in bringing my work to American audiences, and my 2007 performance in New York was one of the high points of my career to date. I’m grateful and sorry to my fans for having to delay these shows. I’ll miss you, and I look forward to seeing you in June.”

I am actually surprised that an 85-year-old that just had surgery is confident enough to re-schedule a concert 3 months from now, but I'm not a doctor......
So, does anyone here - besides me, DJ, and SeanSeanSean - have tickets for this concert?

I do.  And as disappointing as the postponement is, it works for me because I have something else to go to that night of great personal importance and was very conflicted about having to make a choice.

As always, the man's health is what matters most, and I only wish the best for him, of course.

h/t Milan NS:

http://variety.com/2014/music/news/ennio-morricone-tour-canceled-1201185530/

Variety is reporting that all of Morricone's scheduled concerts in North America and Europe have been canceled due to the Maestro's ongoing health problems. Nothing official has been announced yet, but Variety says the choir members have been told the concert is off. I haven't received any notification from Ticketmaster yet, but I assume I will soon.

here is the text of the article



Ennio Morricone Tour Dates Canceled Due to Health Concerns

May 18, 2014 | 04:09PM PT
By Jon Burlingame
[/b]

Italian film-composing legend Ennio Morricone’s ongoing health concerns have led to the cancellation of his three North American concerts in June, sources say.

Morricone, who suffered a back injury earlier this year that led to the postponement of his scheduled March concerts in New York and L.A., had been slated to conduct his own 100-piece orchestra on June 13 (in Brooklyn), June 15 (at LA Live’s Nokia Theatre) and June 18 (in Mexico City).

Members of the 75-voice choir that had been scheduled to accompany the maestro in L.A. were informed Sunday that the concert had been cancelled due to his “serious health issues.”

In addition to his three North American appearances, sources say the rest of his planned concert tour — with 21 dates across Europe from late June through March of next year — is also likely to be cancelled.

Publicists for the Morricone concerts could not immediately be reached.

The 85-year-old composer of “The Mission,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Days of Heaven” and more than 400 other scores has never appeared in concert in Los Angeles. His sole previous American concert was in 2007 in New York.

Morricone is only the second composer in Oscar history to receive an honorary Oscar for career achievement. He received it in 2007. His other notable scores include “Cinema Paradiso,” “Once Upon a Time in America,” “The Untouchables” and “Bugsy.”

yeah, I guess he wanted to inform the choir members and others involved before announcing it to the public. I am hoping there is some mistake in Variety's sources, but I am not too optimistic. I assume we should get an email from Ticketmaster within the next day or two.

Come to think of it, with all these new restored Leone BRD boxsets coming out soon, I may need the $400 I'm gonna get back for the canceled tickets  ;)

If I miss him this time, I figure I'll never see him again live because of his great age. (85 yo)

At least I have the indelible memory of the RCMH concert of 2007.

Buy a region-free BD player!

It's a shame about the concerts, though. Like S,S,S says, we may never get another chance to see EM in the flesh.

(Yo Dave... cool Herzog screenshot...)

Thanks to saltarello from the EM forum:

http://www.gazzettadelsud.it/news/92640/Morricone-calls-off-future-concerts-indefinitely---update.html

'Legendary cinema composer Ennio Morricone called off indefinitely any future tours and concerts on Monday due to a herniated disc. "He's been afflicted for some months," said his lawyer Giorgio Assumma. "It's making conducting and long-distance travel impossible". Made famous for writing unforgettable scores for Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns in the 1960s and 70s, the 85-year-old will continue to compose music for cinema. His lawyer added that Morricone may be well enough for future concerts in his home city of Rome, "after his recovery, which is not expected to be swift".'

The Ennio Morricone show scheduled for June 13 at Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center has been cancelled due to health issues.

Morricone has been in recovery since March, when he suffered a back injury that forced the postponement of this concert from March to June. He was expected to make a fast recovery, however his doctors have now found further complications.

All online and phone credit card orders will be automatically refunded. Remaining refunds will be available at point of purchase.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you at a future event at Barclays Center.

Sincerely,

Barclays Center

I don't know how the refund policy plays out, but as of now, Ticketmaster has moved the show to the "Past Events" category, yet still seems to be offering tickets for sale.

Ticketmaster is automatically refunding all tickets purchased via phone or Internet. I wasn't sure how long it would take, so I actually called a Ticketmaster customer service agent today and got him to do the refund for me personally, and he did so - he credited my debit card and said that the $ should be back in my account in 3-5 business days.

I asked him to do it personally because I didn't wanna wait for whenever Ticketmaster would get around to it. But the credit should happen automatically (for everyone who bought tickets from Ticketmaster over phone or Internet.)

No, I'm afraid not; I'm in Europe you see, never been to the US in my life... that EM concert I went to was in Belgrade, capital of my country (Serbia).

I forgot you were from Serbia. I recently ordered a used copy of Slavko Vorkapich's "O Pravom Filmu / On True Cinema" (Serbian/English bilingual) from knjizara.com

Deciphering the ordering process with google translate was a little challenging but I think I got it right. If it doesn't show up I might need to call on you for some help!

I recently ordered a used copy of Slavko Vorkapich's "O Pravom Filmu / On True Cinema" (Serbian/English bilingual) from knjizara.com

So I finally received my copy of this.

Knjizara told me they could not find the copy of the book they had listed, but the Balkan Bookstore in Sydney, Australia managed to track down another copy (seems like there was a second edition and this time it was new). However, they would not ship internationally. Fortunately my sister lives in Melbourne and was able to forward it on to me. So this book went from Serbia to Australia (Melbourne via Sydney), and finally to me here on the East Coast of the United States. It had better be worth reading after all that!
