Ennio: THE MAESTRO, a biography on the film composer Ennio Morricone directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, was scheduled to release this year. As the director stated, he hoped not only can this documentary on Morricone’s musical career being presented to the world, but all the audience can perceive his music and fall in love with this popular loved musician by watching through the movie clips he composed. However, Mr. Morricone didn't wait until it being the gift sent to him. The legendary Italian composer died on July 6, leaving laments to his fans all over the world.?

Mr.Morricone had scored for over 500 films,including Once Upon a Time in America, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, The Legend of 1900 , etc. He was granted to an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement in 2007, became the only second composer to achieve the award. And in 2016, he won the Oscar for Best Original Score for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

Mr. Morricone did not learn to speak English, he never left Rome to compose. The soundtrack "Love Theme for Nata" in Nuovo Cinema Paradiso had touched millions of fans around the world. While “Playing Love” “Magic Waltz” had completed the Movie The Legend of 1900 in a sense. “Once Upon a Time in America”, another masterpiece of Mr. Morricone… Although “The Dollars Trilogy” was the one that made him most closely identified. 

So, have you ever come across any films that the soundtrack was composed by Ennio Morricone? If not, we strongly recommend you to pick one! If yes, which soundtrack impressed you most?

  • The most impressive is "Cinema Paradiso". Salvatore Di Vita returned home to attend Alfredo's funeral after becoming a director. "Childhood and Manhood” is accompanied by the memory of childhood and take us back to that time. After 30 year later, background music "Love Theme" shows Salvatore Di Vita's gratitude to Alfredo and homesickness...

    Mr. Morricone tells with music, not just the story of Salvatore Di Vita, but the story of all of us.
