Smoke Notes

New Zealand born soprano Hayley Westenra celebrates ten incredible years in the music industry with the release of her fifth studio album, 'Paradiso' - a collaboration with master Italian composer Ennio Morricone. Well known for his iconic film scores including 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' and 'Once Upon a Time in the West', Morricone received an honorary Academy Award for his contribution to the art of film music in 2007 and is regarded as one of the most prolific and influential composers of his era.

The album features new compositions written by Morricone for Hayley, as well as some of his best-known film compositions of the last 50 years. With Ennio making new bespoke arrangements for every track, he produced all of Hayley's vocal performances, as well as conducting each session with his own 120-piece orchestra - Sinfonietta di Roma.

Recorded last year at the Forum studio in Piazza Euclide - the very studio where Ennio has recorded his countless classic film scores with his multi Grammy-winning engineer Fabio Venturi - Paradiso showcases Hayley singing in English, Italian, French, Portuguese and Vocalese.

'Paradiso' marks the first time ever Ennio has allowed - and in Hayley's case encouraged - anyone to write new lyrics for his classic themes such as for Gabriel's Oboe (Whispers In A Dream), the theme from the 1986 film classic, 'The Mission'. Hayley has also written English lyrics to two more of the album's tracks: La Califfa and the album's final track, Malena. Oscar winning lyricist Don Black and Sir Tim Rice and Marilyn and Alan Bergman have all also contributed lyrics to this album.

Dickon Stainer, Managing Director for Decca Records, on the collaboration: "It's a match made in heaven - a true legend of film music collaborating with the purest voice in the world".

1. Gabriel's Oboe (Whispers In A Dream)
