SPAGHETTI WESTERN ORCHESTRA
Spaghetti Western Orchestra has had enormous success around the with their hilarious celebration of the iconic film collaborations between director Sergio Leone and music composer, Ennio Morricone. Here they appear as part of the BBC Proms from 2011, performing on stage at the Albert Hall in London, England.
This highly theatrical show features classic themes from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, For A Few Dollars More and Once Upon a Time in the West as well as ingenious recreations of the saloons, spittoons and shotgun-slinging ambience of the Wild Wild West.
Dressed in period attire against a dramatic scorched sun backdrop, five brilliant musician performers play over 100 'instruments' which range from the conventional to an incredible array of everyday objects including playing cards, rubber gloves, coat hangers and packets of cornflakes.
The musical arrangements are accomplished and endlessly inventive, summoning the power of an entire orchestra and using foley (sound effects) artistry to recreate the punch-ups, gun-shots and jangling spurs evoking the glorious movies that made Clint Eastwood a star. (01:11:43)
