YouTubeAmazon – iTunes

100 years before the Basildon boys were enjoying the silence, Pietro Mascagni was putting the final touches to ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’. Okay, I’m a popular culture type of guy. And so, the selection is just as much about Martin Scorcese’s ‘Raging Bull’ as it is about Italian opera. This piece of music evokes beautiful cinematography. Sensory overload.
