Something Beautiful 15

Once Upon a Time in The West came out when I was 10. The music, Ennio Morricone’s music, made me cry, and has made me cry ever since. This is (soprano) Susanna Rigacci, performing the title theme… though not the original singer of the theme, she is better… her voice is a force of nature, towering over an entire orchestra…

… here is a much shorter, just as gorgeous, understated version by Steffi Vertriest…

… and here’s a theremin version…

… I adore the theremin, I find it and theremin artists to be almost magical/unfathomable in a fabulous, retro-futuristic way. Katica Illennyi is actually a classically trained violinist, who seems to play theremin as a side-gig  (:
