@Gerry: That's because it's the theme from the film, "The Last of the Mohicans." The OP got it wrong. It's not a Morricone piece. It's a piece called "The Gael," originally by Dougie MacLean as Dead-Kittens said, and later arranged by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman for the film.

@ggolbez - who cares? it's awesome and so is the soundtrack. I tried to get my HS band director to do our marching show to this soundtrack and he said no, and promptly introduced us to Yanni. some srs WTF going on there.

This movie is so historically inaccurate it hurts.

Morricone did not do the music for Last of the Mohicans. Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman did it.

ferdy, good point about the "4D" sense. These guys are not afraid to experiment if it brings the script/situations/characters into life or relief. They may write the most beautiful passage for strings, then turn around and do abstract, electronic, etc. Look at someone like Angelo Badalamenti. He'll write mainstream scores, then turn around and do that nicely weird ambient stuff for David Lynch.

I've been fascinated by movie music since I was a teenager, and I really have the utmost respect for these composers.

Jake
exactly - your comment hits the nail
they have that certain something which puts them into legend status, gives the viewer a kind of 4d sense, makes you enter the characters and make you feel what they are experiencing just by the tones and vibe of their composition

"He is my top end musical magician in respect of film track themes."

I agree, ferdy. There have been many epic composers in the film music field -- Korngold, Rozsa, etc. But there are those certain ones, like Morricone and Bernard Herrmann, who seem to contribute more than music. It's like they've discovered elements in the script that even the director missed, and they express those elements sonically. They really are the "gunslingers" among composers.

Good post, ferdy ....

It's good to be reminded that Morricone has done it all -- westerns, crime dramas, comedies, romance, adventures, horror, etc. He's as versatile as he is brilliant.

One of my all-time favorite Morricone themes is the one he wrote for a 1970 Italian crime drama (starring Charles Bronson!) called "Citta Violenta" ...

"Citta Violenta" Main Theme
