Henry Mancini

Henry Mancini was an American composer, conductor, arranger, pianist and flutist. Often cited as one of the greatest composers in the history of film, he won four Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and twenty Grammy Awards, plus a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995.

His works include the theme and soundtrack for the Peter Gunn television series, as well as the music for The Pink Panther film series (“The Pink Panther Theme”) and “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The Music from Peter Gunn, Mr. Lucky, won the inaugural Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

Mancini enjoyed a long collaboration in composing film scores for the film director Blake Edwards. Mancini also scored a No. 1 hit single during the rock era on the Hot 100: his arrangement and recording of the “Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet” spent two weeks at the top, starting with the week ending June 28, 1969.

In 1996, the Henry Mancini Institute, an academy for young music professionals, was founded by Jack Elliott in Mancini’s honor, and was later under the direction of composer-conductor Patrick Williams. By the mid-2000s, however, the institute could not sustain itself and closed its doors on December 30, 2006.

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Foundation “Henry Mancini Music Scholarship” has been awarded annually since 2001.

In 2005, the Henry Mancini Arts Academy was opened as a division of the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center. The center is located in Midland, Pennsylvania, minutes away from Mancini’s hometown of Aliquippa.

The Henry Mancini Arts Academy is an evening-and-weekend performing arts program for children from pre-K to grade 12, with some classes also available for adults. The program includes dance, voice, musical theater, and instrumental lessons.

The American Film Institute ranked Mancini’s songs “Moon River” No. 4 and “Days of Wine and Roses” No. 39 on their list of the greatest songs, and his score for The Pink Panther No. 20 on their list of the greatest film scores. His scores for Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Charade (1963), Hatari! (1962), Touch of Evil (1958) and Wait Until Dark (1967) were also nominated for the list.

saint saens free sheet music & scores pdf

Camille Saint-Saëns – Camille Saint-Saëns est un compositeur et pianiste français né en 1835. Il est l’un des musiciens les plus prolifiques de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle. Opéras, musique de chambre, concertos pour pianos ou symphonies, il crée au cours d’une carrière remarquable de près de 80 ans des œuvres qui ont marqué l’évolution de la musique à l’aube du XXe siècle.

Né à Paris le 9 octobre 1835, Camille Saint-Saëns montre très vite des aptitudes exceptionnelles pour la musique. Il joue à l’âge de 11 ans un concerto pour piano de Mozart, puis entre au conservatoire à 13 ans pour y étudier l’orgue et la composition. Très vite, il suscite l’admiration de grands compositeurs comme Berlioz ou Liszt, avec qui il se lie d’amitié jusqu’à la fin de sa vie.

En 1871, il crée la Société nationale de musique, dont l’objectif est double : permettre à de jeunes compositeurs français de présenter leurs œuvres au public, mais aussi encourager la création française pour affronter la tempête germanique, dominante en Europe à la suite de la guerre de 1870.
La consécration artistique de Saint-Saëns aura lieu à partir de la fin des années 1870, notamment grâce à son opéra “Samson et Dalila” (composé 1878), ou “le Carnaval des Animaux” (1886).

Élu à l’académie des Beaux-Arts en 1881, il est également l’auteur de la première bande originale de film en 1908, pour “L’assassinat du Duc de Guise”. Camille Saint-Saëns meurt à l’âge de 86 ans à Alger, le 16 décembre 1921.

9 octobre 1835 : Naissance de Camille Saint-Saëns, compositeur français. Camille Saint-Saëns était un compositeur de musique romantique né en 1835. Pianiste et organiste, il fut un enfant précoce, donnant son premier concert à onze ans. Il écrivit douze opéras, dont “Samson et Dalila” en 1877. Son œuvre compte des oratorios, symphonies, concertos, ainsi que des pièces musicales surprenantes telles que “Le Carnaval des Animaux”. En 1908, il composa la musique du film “L’Assassinat du duc de Guise” et mourut en 1921.

16 décembre 1921 : Mort de Camille Saint-Saëns, naît le 9 octobre 1835 à Paris. Pianiste et organiste renommé, il a composé douze opéras, cinq symphonies, des musiques de chambre et des concertos. Appartenant au courant musical postromantique de la 2ᵉ partie du 19ᵉ siècle, ses œuvres les plus célèbres sont l’opéra « Samson et Dalila », « La Symphonie numéro 3 avec orgue » et « Le Carnaval des animaux », bien que ce dernier lui ait valu un certain nombre de critiques. Camille Saint-Saëns est également le tout premier compositeur célèbre et respecté à composer une musique de film (L’Assassinat du duc de Guise, en 1908). Il meurt le 16 décembre 1929 à Alger.

“A Clockwork Orange (Beethoviana)” with sheet music

a clockwork orange sheet music

The soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange was released to accompany the 1971 film of the same name. The music is a thematic extension of Alex’s (and the viewer’s) psychological conditioning. The soundtrack of A Clockwork Orange comprises classical music and electronic synthetic music composed by Wendy Carlos.

Some of the music is heard only as excerpts, e.g. Edward Elgar‘s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 (a.k.a. Land of Hope and Glory) heralding a politician’s appearance at the prison. The main theme is an electronic transcription of Henry Purcell‘s Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, composed in 1695, for the procession of Queen Mary‘s cortège through London en route to Westminster Abbey.

“March from ‘A Clockwork Orange'” (based on the choral movement of the Ninth Symphony by Beethoven) was the first recorded song featuring a vocoder for the singing; synthpop bands often cite it as their inspiration.

Neither the end credits nor the soundtrack album identify the orchestra playing the Ninth Symphony excerpts; however, in Alex’s bedroom, there is a close-up of a microcassette tape, labeled: Deutsche Grammophon – Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphonie Nr. 9 d-moll, op. 125 – Berliner Philharmoniker – Chor der St. Hedwigskathedrale – Ferenc Fricsay – Irmgard Seefried, Maureen Forrester, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Ernst Haefliger.

In the novel, Alex is accidentally conditioned against all classical music, but in the film, only against Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Ninth Symphony, the soundtrack of a violent Ludovico Technique film that Alex is exposed to. The audience does not see every violent film Alex is forced to view during his Ludovico conditioning, yet the symphony’s fourth movement is heard. Later, using the symphony’s second movement, Mr Alexander, and fellow plotters, impel Alex to attempt suicide.

Perfidia (Bolero) por Alberto Domínguez Borrás (con partitura – sheet music)

Perfidia (Bolero) por Alberto Domínguez Borrás (con partitura – sheet music)


Nadie comprende lo que sufro yo
Canto pues ya no puedo sollozar,
Solo temblando de ansiedad estoy
Todos me miran y se van

Si puedes tú con Dios hablar,
Pregúntale si yo alguna vez
Te he dejado de adorar

Y al mar,
Espejo de mi corazón,
Las veces que me ha visto llorar
La perfidia de tu amor

Te he buscado dondequiera que yo voy,
Y no te puedo hallar,
Para qué quiero otros besos
Si tus labios no me quieren ya besar

Y tú,
Quien sabe por donde andarás
Quien sabe que aventuras tendrás
Que lejos estas de mi

Te he buscado dondequiera que yo voy
Y no te puedo hallar,
Para qué quiero otros besos
Si tus labios no me quieren ya besar.

Y tú,
Quien sabe por donde andarás
Quien sabe que aventuras tendrás
Que lejos estas de mi
De mi
De mi

El bolero Perfidia: de las más famosas canciones de Alberto Domínguez Borrás

Junto con Frenesí, Perfidia es una de las obras más conocidas y versionadas de Alberto Domínguez

bolero free sheet music pdf

Muchas de las canciones que formaron parte de la vida de más de una generación; poco a poco están pasando a formar parte de nuestra historia. Una de ellas es Perfidia, un bolero compuesto en 1939.

Esta canción fue muy popular debido a las diversas versiones que se grabaron y difundieron de ella en la década de los 40. Alrededor de 50 artistas grabaron esta canción en diferentes idiomas; por supuesto, con su sello personal. Los Panchos, Luis Miguel, Glenn Miller, Plácido Domingo y Café Tacvba son solo algunos de los músicos que se sumaron a la lista de intérpretes de Perfidia, que a casi 80 años de su composición, se sigue escuchando.

Mujer; si puedes tú con Dios hablar, pregúntale si yo alguna vez te he dejado de adorar

El autor, Alberto Domínguez Borrás, era originario de San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas. Comenzó a componer a los 8 años de edad; y su pieza Frenesí, también alcanzó la fama mundial. Esto sucedió gracias al clarinetista Artie Shaw, y poco antes del éxito de Perfidia. Estos dos hechos, al haber pasado con tan poca diferencia temporal, lo consagraron como uno de los mejores músicos mexicanos de la época.

La intérprete Linda Ronstadt incluyó ambos temas en su álbum Frenesí, de 1992. A pesar del cambio de época, Linda se llevó el Premio Grammy de ese año como Mejor Álbum Tropical Latino.

Alberto Domínguez continuó componiendo hasta la década de los 70. Él falleció en la Ciudad de México el 2 de Septiembre de 1975; pero muchas de sus obras como Dos almas, Humanidad e Hilos de plata se convirtieron en referentes importantes de la música nacional.

En septiembre del 2004, el palacio de Bellas Artes realizó un homenaje a los hermanos Domínguez; pues además de Alberto, Armando y Abel Domínguez también eran músicos. Contándolos a ellos, el matrimonio Domínguez Borrás tuvo dieciocho hijos.


El tema se inicia con una variante de la progresión doo wop (I-VI-IV-V) en la que el V es sustituido por un II-V. La segunda frase termina en una semicadencia en el relativo menor (V/VI).

Fue incluida en la banda sonora de la película Casablanca, en una escena en un club nocturno de París en la que Humphrey Bogart e Ingrid Bergman bailan juntos.

English lyrics by Milton Needs:

To you
My heart cries out “Perfidia”
For I find you, the love of my life
In somebody else’s arms

Your eyes are echoing “Perfidia”
Forgetful of the promise of love
You’re sharing another’s charms

With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melody
While the gods of love look down and laugh
At what romantic fools we mortals be

And now, I know* my love was not for you
And so I take it back with a sigh
Perfidious one, Goodbye

With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melody
While the gods of love look down and laugh
At what romantic fools we mortals be

And now, I know* my love was not for you
And so I take it back with a sigh
Perfidious one, Goodbye

EBB TIDE (with sheet music download)

“Ebb Tide” is a popular song, written in 1953 by the lyricist Carl Sigman and composer Robert Maxwell. The song’s build up is to illustrate the ocean waves coming in and out to and from the shores, due to the ebb tides. The first three notes are identical to the first three notes of the Erroll Garner song “Misty” (1954). This song is a key part of the original soundtrack of the film Sweet Bird of Youth

First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore
Then rolls out to sea
And the sea is very still once more
So I rush to your side
Like the oncoming tide
With one burning thought
Will your arms open wide
At last we’re face to face
And as we kiss through an embrace
I can tell, I, I can feel
You are love, you are real
Really mine in the rain
In the dark, in the sun
Like the tide at its ebb
I’m at peace in the web of your arms
Ebb tide

Morricone: Once Upon a Time in America

Morricone: Once Upon a Time in America Soundtrack Deborah’s Theme – Amapola (sheet music available in our Library)

morricone sheet music pdf

Once Upon a Time in America (Italian: C’era una volta in America) is a 1984 epic crime drama film co-written and directed by Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone and starring Robert De Niro and James Woods. The film is an Italian–American venture produced by The Ladd Company, Embassy International Pictures, PSO Enterprises, and Rafran Cinematografica, and distributed by Warner Bros. Based on Harry Grey‘s novel The Hoods, it chronicles the lives of best friends David “Noodles” Aaronson and Maximilian “Max” Bercovicz as they lead a group of Jewish ghetto youths who rise to prominence as Jewish gangsters in New York City‘s world of organized crime.

The film explores themes of childhood friendships, love, lust, greed, betrayal, loss, broken relationships, together with the rise of mobsters in American society.

It was the final film directed by Leone before his death five years later, and the first feature film he had directed in 13 years. It is also the third film of Leone’s Once Upon a Time Trilogy, which includes Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) and Duck, You Sucker! (1971).The cinematography was by Tonino Delli Colli, and the film score by Ennio Morricone. Leone originally envisaged two three-hour films, then a single 269-minute (4 hours and 29 minutes) version, but was convinced by distributors to shorten it to 229 minutes (3 hours and 49 minutes).

The American distributors, The Ladd Company, further shortened it to 139 minutes, and rearranged the scenes into chronological order, without Leone’s involvement. The shortened version was a critical and commercial flop in the United States, and critics who had seen both versions harshly condemned the changes that were made. The original “European cut” has remained a critical favorite and frequently appears in lists of the greatest gangster films of all time.


The musical score was composed by Leone’s longtime collaborator Ennio Morricone. “Deborah’s Theme” was written for another film in the 1970s but was rejected. The score is also notable for Morricone’s incorporation of the music of Gheorghe Zamfir, who plays a ‘s pan flute. Zamfir’s flute music was used to similar effect in Peter Weir‘s Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975). Morricone also collaborated with vocalist Edda Dell’Orso on the score.

  • Yesterday” (written by Lennon–McCartney – 1965) – A Muzak version of this piece plays when Noodles first returns to New York in 1968, examining himself in a train station mirror. An instrumental version of the song also plays briefly during the dialogue scene between Noodles and “Bailey” towards the end of the film.
  • Summertime” (written by George Gershwin – 1935) An instrumental version of the aria from the opera Porgy and Bess is playing softly in the background as Noodles, just before leaving, explains to “Secretary Bailey” why he could never kill his friend.
  • Amapola” (written by Joseph Lacalle, American lyrics by Albert Gamse – 1923) – Originally an opera piece, several instrumental versions of this song were played during the film; a jazzy version, which was played on the gramophone danced to by young Deborah in 1918; a similar version played by Fat Moe’s jazz band in the speakeasy in 1930; and a string version, during Noodles’ date with Deborah. Both versions are available on the soundtrack.
  • La gazza ladra” overture (Gioachino Rossini – 1817) – Used during the baby-switching scene in the hospital.
  • Night and Day” (written and sung by Cole Porter – 1932) – Played by a jazz band during the beach scene before the beachgoers receive word of Prohibition’s repeal, and during the party at the house of “Secretary Bailey” in 1968.
  • St. James Infirmary Blues” is used during the Prohibition “funeral” at the gang’s speakeasy.

A soundtrack album was released in 1984 by Mercury Records. This was followed by a special-edition release in 1995, featuring four additional tracks.

MECANO: Hijo de la Luna – Piano Solo con partitura / sheet music

Hijo de la Luna (Mecano) Piano Solo con partitura / sheet music


Mecano fue un grupo español de música pop, activo principalmente entre 1981 y 1992, periodo en la que hay que sumar una fugaz reaparición en 1998, que duró apenas ocho meses a partir de la edición de un doble disco recopilatorio que incluían siete nuevos temas grabados para la ocasión. Estuvo formado por la cantante Ana Torroja y los hermanos Nacho y José María Cano. Fuera del grupo, pero parte integrante de la banda, tanto para las sesiones de estudio como para los directos, estuvieron grandes músicos entre bajistas y bateristas entre los que destacan Arturo Terriza, Manolo Aguilar, Nacho Mañó, Javier Quílez y los bateristas Ángel Celada y Óscar Astruga.

MECANO free sheet music & scores pdf

Mecano realizó un pop que evolucionó desde una sonoridad puramente «tecno», durante su primera etapa (entre 1981 y 1985), hasta el eclecticismo de la que es considerada como segunda época artística (entre 1986 y 1992), en la que el grupo demostró gran versatilidad a través de grandes producciones y de la incursión en diferentes estilos, siempre desde un planteamiento unificador logrado especialmente a través de la sonoridad pop de su vocalista, que sirvió como tamiz nivelador de las tan diferentes concepciones artísticas de sus dos autores.

Su éxito,1​ sin precedentes en el mundo de la música cantada en español, se extendió, además de España, a toda Hispanoamérica, incluidos los Estados Unidos, y Filipinas. Llegando a obtener, cierta resonancia en otros países totalmente ajenos a la cultura musical española como Japón, Suecia, Alemania, Reino Unido, Brasil, Portugal y los Países Bajos. Gracias a las adaptaciones a otros idiomas realizadas de varios de sus temas, cantados principalmente en francés e italiano, se dieron a conocer en países como Italia, Francia, Bélgica, Suiza y Canadá, obteniendo especial resonancia en Francia, donde la adaptación francesa del tema «Mujer contra mujer» («Une femme avec une femme»), alcanzó el primer puesto en la lista nacional de ventas, manteniéndose en esa posición durante ocho semanas consecutivas, lo que le hace seguir siendo, hasta el día de hoy, la canción extranjera que más semanas ha ocupado el primer puesto en las listas de ventas de ese país. Se estima que Mecano ha vendido 25 millones de discos en todo el mundo.

Desde que dieran su último concierto, Mecano ha sido considerado como un hito en la historia de la música pop española. Sus canciones no han dejado de sonar en las emisoras de radio nacionales e internacionales, alimentando las esperanzas de reencuentro entre los nostálgicos de un grupo que ha trascendido varias generaciones.

Tras la disolución del grupo, sus tres miembros comenzaron carreras en solitario:

Nacho Cano, tras la publicación de varios títulos en solitario, entre los cuales se encuentra un primer y extraordinario álbum de carácter instrumental, se dedica a la composición de espectáculos musicales, desde el estreno, en 2005, del musical Hoy no me puedo levantar, basado en las canciones compuestas por su hermano y él mismo tanto para el grupo como para sus discos en solitario, con gran éxito de crítica y público.

José María Cano, tras la composición de una ópera lírica y la grabación y presentación en directo, en 1999, de un álbum como cantautor, se encuentra, en el presente, alejado de la música y dedicado profesionalmente a la pintura, campo de expresión artística en el que está encontrando el reconocimiento que quizá le faltó para su creación musical tras la desaparición del grupo en 1992.

Por su parte, Ana Torroja continúa con el desarrollo de una pausada carrera en solitario que comenzó en 1997 con Puntos cardinales. En 2006 publicó Me cuesta tanto olvidarte, un álbum de versiones de Mecano en diferentes estilos. Durante la década de 2010 se mantuvo bastante inactiva, estrenando sólo su quinto álbum Sonrisa (2010) y uno en vivo, Conexión (2015). Su último disco, Mil razones, salió en 2021 y la encuadra en el synth pop al uso en la época, siendo producido en parte por El Guincho.

Tras la fusión de las compañías discográficas BMG y Sony Music (antigua CBS), casualmente las dos por las que pasó el grupo, y a raíz del interés comercial desatado por el musical Hoy no me puedo levantar, en 2005 se reeditó la discografía del grupo, a lo que se añadió la puesta a la venta de varias ediciones recopilatorias como el box-set Obras completas el tripack Grandes éxitos y el DVD digipack Mecanografía (la historia en imágenes).

Desde la publicación de su último álbum de estudio en 1991, Mecano solo ha editado material de carácter recopilatorio. Cuatro años después del último despliegue editorial de 2005, SonyBMG firmó con la compañía de entretenimiento PlayStation el lanzamiento de Mecano SingStar, el primer videojuego del famoso soporte PlayStation dedicado exclusivamente a un grupo español. Junto a este lanzamiento se realizó la publicación de “Mecano Siglo XXI” un nuevo recopilatorio de 2 CD y dos DVD que incluía como novedad el tema María Luz, grabado en 2005, año en que se pensó en la reunión del grupo, y que en realidad versionaba el tema inédito “El romance de la niña María Luz”, grabado durante las sesiones de estudio del álbum “Descanso Dominical”, en 1988. Mientras, en los DVD se incluyeron imágenes igualmente inéditas del concierto en el Pabellón del Real Madrid de diciembre del 82 así como fragmentos del concierto de Ibiza diez años después.

A MOZART REINCARNATED” – composed by ENNIO MORRICONE with sheet music download.


Arrangement for piano of A Mozart Reincarnated from the motion picture The Legend of 1900, composed by Ennio Morricone.

Ennio Morricone, the man

He is not just a great film composer, he is a great composer. Giuseppe Tornatore

Ennio Morricone was born in Rome on 10 November 1928. His long artistic career includes a wide range of composition genres, from absolute concert music to applied music, working as orchestrator, conductor and composer for theatre, radio and cinema. In 1946, Ennio received his trumpet diploma and in 1954 he received his diploma in Composition at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia under the guidance of Goffredo Petrassi.

He wrote his first concert works at the end of the 1950s, then worked as arranger for RAI (the Italian broadcasting company) and RCA-Italy. He started his career as a film music composer in 1961 with the film Il Federale directed by Luciano Salce. World fame followed through the Sergio Leone westerns: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966), Once Upon a Time in The West (1968) and A Fistful of Dynamite (1971).

In 1965, Morricone joined the improvisation group Nuova Consonanza. Since 1960, Morricone has scored over 450 films working with many Italian and international directors including Sergio Leone, Gillo Pontecorvo, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Bernardo Bertolucci, Giuliano Montaldo, Lina Wertmuller, Giuseppe Tornatore, Brian De Palma, Roman Polanski, Warren Beatty, Adrian Lyne, Oliver Stone, Margarethe Von Trotta, Henry Verneuil, Pedro Almodovar and Roland Joffè. His most famous films (other than the Italian westerns) include: The Battle of Algiers; Sacco and Vanzetti; Cinema Paradiso; The Legend of 1900, Malena; The Untouchables; Once Upon a Time in America; The Mission and U-Turn.

His absolute music production includes over 100 pieces composed from 1946 to the present day. Titles include Concerto per Orchestra n.1 (1957); Frammenti di Eros (1985); Cantata per L’Europa (1988); UT, per tromba, archi e percussioni (1991); Ombra di lontana presenza (1997); Voci dal silenzio (2002); Sicilo ed altri frammenti (2007); Vuoto d’anima piena (2008). In 2001, Ennio Morricone began a period of intense concert activity, conducting his film music and concert works for symphony orchestra and polyphonic choir in more than 100 concerts across Europe, Asia, USA, Central and South America.

During his long career, Ennio Morricone has also received many awards. As well as the Golden Lion and the honorary Oscar he was awarded in 2003, he has been presented with eight Nastri D’argento, five BAFTAs, five Oscar nominations, seven David Di Donatellos, three Golden Globes, one Grammy Award and one European Film Award. In 2009, the then President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, also signed a decree appointing Morricone to the rank of Knight in the Order of the Legion of Honor.

In the recording field, Morricone has received 27 gold discs, seven platinum discs, three Golden Plates and the Critica discografica award for the music of the film Il Prato. The soundtrack from the film The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2009 while Morricone himself was awarded the prestigious Polar Music prize the following year.

His more recent works include scores for the television series Karol and The End of a Mystery, 72 Meters and Fateless. In the 21st century, Morricone’s music has been reused countless times for television and in movies including Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill (2003), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012). In 2007, Morricone received the Academy Honorary Award “for his magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music”.

In November 2013, he began a world tour to coincide with the 50th anniversary of his film music career and performed in locations such as the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Santiago, Chile, Berlin, Germany (O2 World), Budapest, Hungary, and Vienna’s Stadhalle.

On 6 February 2014, Riccardo Mutti conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Morricone’s Voices from the Silence, a cantata Morricone composed in response to 9/11 to give voice to innocent victims. In Autumn 2014, Morricone participated in the recording of a documentary about himself by Giuseppe Tornatore, which is yet to be released.

His European tour resumed from February 2015 to March 2015, with 20 concerts in 12 countries, in Europe’s largest arenas, such as the O2 in London and the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. Playing to a total of 150,000 spectators and with most of the shows sold out, Maestro Morricone’s My Life in Music European Arena Tour was a resounding success.

On 12 June 2015, Morricone conducted a mass composed in dedication to Pope Francis. It was commissioned by the Jesuit Order to commemorate the 200 year anniversary of the recongregation of the Jesuit Order at the Jesuit Church in Rome.

2015 also saw Morricone collaborate with Quentin Tarantino on an original soundtrack for the very first time. On December 7th 2015, The Hateful Eight had its world premiere followed by a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Original Score category the very next day.

Giuseppe Tornatore’s The Correspondence, with an original soundtrack composition by Morricone, is being released on January 15th 2016
