|Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic OrchestraIl Maestro – one of the greatest composers of both the 20th and 21st century, still performing concerts in his 88th year and finally, but finally winning a competitive Oscar for The Hateful Eight in 2016.
Born in Rome in 1928, Morricone began his film career with Il Federale in 1961 and spiralled to worldwide success with his unique music for the Sergio Leone ‘Man With No Name’ trilogy starring Clint Eastwood, A Fistful Of Dollars, A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.
The breadth of his brilliance is underlined by this 40 track selection of some of his greatest scores performed by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. One of the most respected and recorded orchestras in the world they pay due homage to the great composer.
It’s a journey through cinematic genius, six decades of wonderful music. Highlights include the Leone films, 1900, Chi Mai, Once Upon A Time In America, The Mission, The Untouchables, Cinema Paradiso and of course his Oscar winner, The Hateful Eight.
As director Quentin Tarantino has said, “I have a huge record collection that I’ve been collecting since I was a kid. I realized I have more Ennio Morricone records than I have of anybody else. More than Bob Dylan, more than The Beatles, more than Elvis Presley, more than any rock musician”.
