After twenty award-winning years of globe-trotting, Angèle Dubeau and her all-female string ensemble La Pietà share a collection of favorites from their 2017 20th anniversary tour, and it’s WCRB’s CD of the Week.

Ennio Morricone is as about close as a film composer can come to being a household name — and, at age 88, he's still going strong. This year, he was signed to a new record label and has now released a new recording, Morricone 60, named for the number of years he's been in the business.
