Ennio Morricone, (10 November 1928 – 6 July 2020) was an Italian composer, orchestrator, conductor, and former trumpet player who wrote music in a wide range of styles. Morricone composed over 400 scores for cinema and television, as well as over 100 classical works. He started as a talented football player for A.S. Roma but left the sport to follow his passion for music. His score to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) is considered one of the most influential soundtracks in history and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

His filmography includes over 70 award-winning films, all Sergio Leone‘s films since A Fistful of Dollars, all Giuseppe Tornatore‘s films since Cinema Paradiso, The Battle of Algiers, Dario Argento‘s Animal Trilogy, 1900, Exorcist II, Days of Heaven, several major films in French cinema, in particular the comedy trilogy La Cage aux Folles I, II, III and Le Professionnel, as well as The Thing, The Mission, The Untouchables, Mission to Mars, Bugsy, Disclosure, In the Line of Fire, Bulworth, Ripley’s Game and The Hateful Eight.

After playing the trumpet in jazz bands in the 1940s, he became a studio arranger for RCA Victor and in 1955 started ghost writing for film and theatre. Throughout his career, he composed music for artists such as Paul Anka, Mina, Milva, Zucchero and Andrea Bocelli. From 1960 to 1975, Morricone gained international fame for composing music for Westerns and—with an estimated 10 million copies sold—Once Upon a Time in the West is one of the best-selling scores worldwide.

From 1966 to 1980, he was a main member of Il Gruppo, one of the first experimental composers collectives, and in 1969 he co-founded Forum Music Village, a prestigious recording studio. From the 1970s, Morricone excelled in Hollywood, composing for prolific American directors such as Don Siegel, Mike Nichols, Brian De Palma, Barry Levinson, Oliver Stone, Warren Beatty, John Carpenter and Quentin Tarantino. In 1977, he composed the official theme for the 1978 FIFA World Cup.

He continued to compose music for European productions, such as Marco Polo, La piovra, Nostromo, Fateless, Karol and En mai, fais ce qu’il te plait. Morricone’s music has been reused in television series, including The Simpsons and The Sopranos, and in many films, including Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. He also scored seven Westerns for Sergio Corbucci, Duccio Tessari‘s Ringo duology and Sergio Sollima‘s The Big Gundown and Face to Face.

Ennio Morricone worked extensively for other film genres with directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci, Mauro Bolognini, Giuliano Montaldo, Roland Joffé, Roman Polanski and Henri Verneuil. His acclaimed soundtrack for The Mission (1986) was certified gold in the United States. The album Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone stayed 105 weeks on the Billboard Top Classical Albums.

Morricone’s best-known compositions include “The Ecstasy of Gold“, “Se Telefonando“, “Man with a Harmonica“, “Here’s to You“, the UK No. 2 single “Chi Mai“, “Gabriel’s Oboe” and “E Più Ti Penso“. In 1971, he received a “Targa d’Oro” for worldwide sales of 22 million, and by 2016 Morricone had sold over 70 million records worldwide. In 2007, he received the Academy Honorary Award “for his magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music.” He has been nominated for a further six Oscars.

In 2016, Morricone received his first competitive Academy Award for his score to Quentin Tarantino’s film The Hateful Eight, at the time becoming the oldest person ever to win a competitive Oscar. His other achievements include three Grammy Awards, three Golden Globes, six BAFTAs, ten David di Donatello, eleven Nastro d’Argento, two European Film Awards, the Golden Lion Honorary Award and the Polar Music Prize in 2010. Morricone has influenced many artists from film scoring to other styles and genres, including Hans Zimmer,Danger Mouse, Dire Straits, Muse, Metallica, and Radiohead.

While possessing a stylistically distinct sound, Hisaishi’s music has been known to explore and incorporate different genres, including minimalist, experimental electronic, European classical, and Japanese classical. Lesser known are the other musical roles he plays; he is also a typesetter, author, arranger, and conductor.

He has been associated with animator Hayao Miyazaki since 1984, having composed scores for all but one of his films. He is also recognized for the soundtracks he has provided for filmmaker ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano, including A Scene at the Sea (1991), Sonatine (1993), Kids Return (1996), Hana-bi (1997), Kikujiro (1999), and Dolls (2002), as well for the video game series Ni no Kuni. He was a student of anime composer Takeo Watanabe.

長野県中野市出身。長野県須坂高等学校を経て、国立音楽大学作曲科卒業。久石譲の名は、大学在学中に友人と話し合った結果、当時活躍していたクインシー・ジョーンズの名前をもじり漢字に当てたものに由来する。

映画音楽を中心に手掛ける。特に宮崎駿監督作品においては、『風の谷のナウシカ』以降、『風立ちぬ』まで29年間すべての長編アニメーション映画の音楽を手掛けている。また、北野武監督作品においても、『あの夏、いちばん静かな海。』から『Dolls』までの7作品の音楽を手掛けている。

ソロ活動も行っており、多数のソロアルバムをリリースしている。これらのアルバムでは、指揮演奏プロデュースも手掛け、ジャンルにとらわれない独自のスタイルを確立している。また、一部の楽曲では、自らボーカルを担当している。

Studio Ghibli Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社スタジオジブリ, Hepburn: Kabushiki-gaisha Sutajio Jiburi) is a Japanese animation film studio headquartered in Koganei, Tokyo. The studio is best known for its animated feature films, and has also produced several short films, television commercials, and one television film. It was founded on 15 June 1985 by directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata and producer Toshio Suzuki, after the success of Topcraft‘s anime film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984). Studio Ghibli has also collaborated with video game studios on the visual development of several video games.

Six of Studio Ghibli’s films are among the 10 highest-grossing anime films made in Japan, with Spirited Away (2001) being the second highest, grossing over US$360 million worldwide. Many of their works have won the Animage Anime Grand Prix award, and four have won the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year. Five of Studio Ghibli’s films have received Academy Award nominations. Spirited Away won the Golden Bear in 2002 and the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2003. Totoro, a character from My Neighbor Totoro, is the studio’s mascot.

On 3 August 2014, Studio Ghibli temporarily halted production following the retirement of Miyazaki. In February 2017, Toshio Suzuki announced that Miyazaki had come out of retirement again to direct a new feature film, How Do You Live?, with Studio Ghibli.

Film noir, (French: “dark film”) style of filmmaking characterized by such elements as cynical heroes, stark lighting effects, frequent use of flashbacks, intricate plots, and an underlying existentialist philosophy. The genre was prevalent mostly in American crime dramas of the post-World War II era. Early examples of the noir style include dark, stylized detective films such as John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon (1941), Frank Tuttle’s This Gun for Hire (1942), Otto Preminger’s Laura (1944), and Edward Dmytryk’s Murder, My Sweet (1944).

Banned in occupied countries during the war, these films became available throughout Europe beginning in 1946. French cineastes admired them for their cold, cynical characters and dark, brooding style, and they afforded the films effusive praise in French journals such as Cahiers du cinéma. French critics coined the term film noir in reference to the low-keyed lighting used to enhance these dramas stylistically—although the term would not become commonplace in international critical circles until the publication of the book Panorama du film noir americain (1955) by Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton.

MOZART REINCARNATED ENNIO MORRICONE sheet music pdf A

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

Philip Glass – Music from The Hours (2002)

Philip Glass – Music from The Hours – Complete (with sheet music in our Library)

philip glass sheet music pdf

Philip Glass is an Oscar-nominated avant-garde composer whose notable works include ‘Einstein on the Beach,’ ‘The Hours’ and ‘Notes on a Scandal.’

Philip Glass biography

Musician Philip Glass, born on January 31, 1937, in Baltimore, went on to study with Nadia Boulanger and Ravi Shankar, later forming the Philip Glass Ensemble. He received accolades for his debut opera, Einstein on the Beach, and eventually earned Oscar nominations for scoring the films Kundun, The Hours and Notes on a Scandal. Known for his distinctive contemporary minimalism, Glass has worked with artists from a variety of disciplines.  

Background and Education

Philip Glass was born on January 31, 1937, in Baltimore. He took up the violin and flute and began performing before reaching his teens. Glass took classes at the Peabody Institute’s conservatory and later studied at the University of Chicago and The Juilliard School.

Studies With Ravi Shankar

Glass eventually decided to travel to Europe, studying under conductor Nadia Boulanger and sitar musician Ravi Shankar, whom Glass cited as a major influence on his craft. 

Glass adopted an approach to musical composition that relied on repetitive, sometimes subtly nuanced musical structures that would be seen as a cornerstone of contemporary minimalism. (The composer later saw the term “minimalism” as an outdated way of describing his work and the varying sounds of up-and-coming artists.) He formed the electric Philip Glass Ensemble in 1967, an avant-garde group that would continue to earn buzz over the years, if not universal acclaim.

Acclaim for ‘Einstein’

Playwright Robert Wilson worked with the composer to bring Glass’ first opera, Einstein on the Beach, to the stage in 1976. Based on the life of the famed physicist and relying upon an unorthodox, repeating sonic framework, Einstein earned major acclaim. Many more operas were to come from Glass, including 1980’s Satyagraha, which followed a portion of the life of Mahatma Gandhi.

The prolific Glass has composed several symphonies and concertos as well, performing his work internationally as part of his ensemble and having works staged in venues like the London Coliseum, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. His albums include Glassworks (1982), Songs From Liquid Days (1986)—with contributions from David Byrne, Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt and the Kronos Quartet—and Hydrogen Jukebox (1993), among many others. Glass has received an array of honors and has worked with visionaries from various art forms, including singer-songwriter Patti Smith, dancer-choreographer Twyla Tharp and writer Doris Lessing.

Array of Film Scores

Glass has provided scores for a litany of movies that include the acclaimed Koyaanisqatsi (1982), a project directed byGodfrey Reggio that uses visuals and music to create a story about humanity’s relationship with nature. Other big-screen scores from Glass have included Hamburger Hill (1987), Candyman (1992), The Truman Show (1998), Secret Window (2002), The Illusionist (2006), Leviathan (2014) and Fantastic Four (2015), as well as documentaries like Pandemic: Facing AIDS (2002) and A Sea Change (2009). Glass received Academy Award nominations for the musical scores of Kundun (1997), The Hours (2002) and Notes on a Scandal (2006).

In September 2016, President Barack Obama presented Glass with a National Medal of Arts. At the ceremony, President Obama said Glass was being honored “for his groundbreaking contributions to music and composition,” and described him as “one of the most prolific, inventive, and influential artists of our time, he has expanded musical possibility with his operas, symphonies, film scores, and wide-ranging collaborations.” 

The Hours: Music from the Motion Picture by Philip Glass

Surprisingly, several of the negative comments I’ve read about Stephen Daldry’s film The Hours single Philip Glass’s score out for special vilification. The New Yorker calls it “intrusive” and “chiming.” This says more about the current state of film-reviewing (dismal) than it does about Glass’s score.

Glass has scored films since nearly the beginning of his career. Kundun, from a few years back, was probably his most mainstream film project until The Hours, an adaptation of the novel by Michael Cunningham. The Hours interweaves the stories of three women: author Virginia Woolf, an editor, and a young mother. In his preface to this CD, Cunningham recollects how he became hooked on Glass’s Einstein on the Beach in college, and how Glass’s music has remained a part of him ever since. “Glass, like Woolf,” he writes, “is more interested in that which continues than he is in that which begins, climaxes, and ends.”

Perhaps The Hours isn’t Glass’s best film score, but I think it will be my favorite. Sustained and elegiac, it has a fragile beauty that nevertheless persists far away from the film’s images. Strings play a dominant role, and so does the piano, here played by long-time Glass collaborator Michael Riesman. If much of this score sounds like older Glass, this is not just an accident. The track titled “I’m Going to Make a Cake” is based on a scene from Glass’s opera Satyagraha; it is interesting to hear how the same thematic material can make a very different impression in a different context. “Tearing Herself Away” looks two decades back to the Glassworks album, and “The Escape” is based on a track from Glass’s solo piano CD.

It would be inappropriate to criticize Glass for laziness; even Bach recycled, and it seems that Glass felt – correctly, it turns out – that there were things left unsaid when he used these materials the first time around. At any rate, the melancholy radiance of his score to The Hours is self-justifying.

Nonesuch doesn’t make this clear, but this CD appears not to be a soundtrack recording – at least, not entirely, as a different pianist (David Arch) is heard in the film. “Tearing Herself Away” is not heard in the film either. This doesn’t matter, but it is unexplained and somewhat odd.

The tense, pallid faces of Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore have been used to create one of the most striking film posters of recent times. Glass’s music, with its ability to make the familiar strange, fits the publicity and the tone of the film itself. Don’t listen to the film critics: this is masterful music. Filmmakers are seldom this lucky.

As time goes by – Herman Hupfeld (piano solo) with sheet music download

As Time Goes By

is a song written by Herman Hupfeld in 1931. It became famous when it was featured in the 1942 Warner Bros. film Casablanca performed by Dooley Wilson as Sam. The song was voted No. 2 on the AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs special, commemorating the best songs in film (only surpassed by “Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland). The song has since become the signature tune of Warner Bros. and used as such in the production logos at the beginning of many Warner Bros. films since 1999, as well as the closing logos to most Warner Bros. Television Studios shows since 2003. It was also the title and theme song of the 1990s British romantic comedy series As Time Goes By.

“As Time Goes By” is most famous from the film Casablanca (1942). It was originally written for the Broadway show Everybody’s Welcome (1931), which ran for 139 performances. In 1931, the song was a modest hit, with versions issued on Victor, Columbia, Brunswick and the dime store labels. The song was featured in the unproduced play Everybody Comes To Rick’s, which was the basis for the Casablanca story and script.

Against Max Steiner‘s wishes (he wrote the music for the film), it was decided to feature the 1931 song in the 1942 film. It has been well documented that the producers considered dropping the song in post-production, but since Ingrid Bergman had been given the part of Maria in Paramount’s For Whom the Bell Tolls and had cut her hair for the part, it would not have been possible to reshoot any of her scenes with the song being performed, or to have her request that Sam play a different song.

The AFI listed it among its “top 100” movie songs. National Public Radio included it in its “NPR 100”, a 1999 list of the most important American musical works of the 20th century as compiled by NPR’s music editors.[2] The song is a popular reflection of nostalgia and often used in films and series reflecting this feeling.

Lyrics

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes byAnd when two lovers woo
They still say “I love you”
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate
Woman needs man, and man must have his mate
That no one can deny

It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate
Woman needs man, and man must have his mate
That no one can deny

It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

Herman Hupfeld

Herman Hupfeld (February 1, 1894 – June 8, 1951) was an American songwriter whose most notable composition was “As Time Goes By“. He wrote both the lyrics and music.

Hupfeld was born in Montclair, New Jersey, the son of Fredericka (Rader), a church organist, and Charles Ludwig Hupfeld. He was sent to study violin in Germany at age 9. Returning to the United States he served in the military during World War I, and he entertained camps and hospitals during World War II. He never wrote a whole Broadway score, but he became known as a composer who could write a song to fit a specific scene within a Broadway show.

His best-known songs include “As Time Goes By”, “Sing Something Simple”, “Let’s Put Out the Lights (And Go to Sleep)”, “When Yuba Plays the Rumba on the Tuba”, “I’ve Gotta Get Up and Go to Work”, “Are You Making Any Money?”, “Savage Serenade”, “Down the Old Back Road”, “A Hut in Hoboken”, “Night Owl”, “Honey Ma Love”, “Baby’s Blue”, “Untitled” and “The Calinda”.

While not known as a public performer, Hupfeld was featured on a Victor Young & His Orchestra 78 recorded on January 22, 1932, singing and playing piano on two of his compositions, “Goopy Geer (he plays piano and he plays by ear)” and “Down the Old Back Road”.

Hupfeld never married and, with rare exceptions, he remained living in the family home with his mother in his hometown of Montclair, New Jersey, only traveling as far as New York City in his entire life. He died in 1951 of a stroke at the age of 57 and was buried at Mount Hebron Cemetery in Montclair. His mother died 6 years later aged 90.

Ennio Morricone: Deborah’s Theme (Once Upon a Time in America)

Find this sheet music and many more from Morricone in our Library.

Ennio Morricone: Deborah’s Theme (Once Upon a Time in America)

The music of Once Upon a Time in America was composed by Sergio Leone’s long-time collaborator, Ennio Morricone. Due to the film’s unusually long production, Morricone had finished composing most of the soundtrack before many scenes had even been filmed. Some of Morricone’s pieces were actually played on set as filming took place (a technique that Leone had used for Once Upon a Time in the West).

“Deborah’s Theme” was in fact originally written for another film in the 1970s but rejected; Morricone presented the piece to Leone, who was initially reluctant, considering it too similar to Morricone’s main title for Once Upon a Time in the West.

Who was Ennio Morricone?

Ennio Morricone is an Academy Award winning composer, orchestrator, and conductor from Italy. Considered one of the most influential, versatile, and experimental composers of all time, he has produced more than 500 scores and over 100 classical works.

He was indoctrinated in music by his father who gave him his first lessons on how to read music and taught him how to play various instruments. He wrote his first score at six, with his parents providing a nurturing environment for his talent to grow. The first instrument he learned in a formal setting was a trumpet. His career as an arranger began in 1950 and four years later he started working on film projects as a ghost writer. In 1964, he founded the ‘Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’ (G.I.N.C.) along with Franco Evangelisti and Egisto Macchi and had been one of the main members until the group’s disbandment in 1980.

He was one of the principal contributors in setting up the legendary recording studio ‘Forum Music Village’ in 1969. Some of his best-known compositions are ‘The Ecstasy of Gold’, ‘Se Telefonando’, ‘Man with a Harmonica’, ‘Here’s to You’, ‘Chi Mai’, ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ and ‘E Più Ti Penso’.

Childhood & Early Life

Ennio Morricone was born on November 10, 1928, in Rome, Italy to parents Libera Ridolfi, an entrepreneur, and Mario Morricone, a trumpet player. Growing up in Trastevere, the 13th rione of Rome, alongside his four siblings, brothers Aldo and Franco, and sisters Adriana and Maria, his first exposure to music happened through his father. He wrote his first composition at six, thus proving himself to be a child prodigy.He attended ‘John the Baptist Elementary School’ in Rome. He enrolled at the ‘Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia’ at 12 and completed a four-year course in six months.

He learned trumpet under Umberto Semproni. He also studied composition under the famous composer Goffredo Petrassi. When he concluded his studies at the Conservatory in 1954, he had diplomas in trumpet, composition, and band instrumentation.

Career

Ennio Morricone’s professional career took off with ‘Il Mattino’ (The Morning), composed in 1946. In the ensuing years, he would exhibit the diversity of his genius not only by producing music for theatre and classical music for voice and piano, but also by writing arrangements for some American-style medleys for a series of radio shows.His move from radio shows to films was swift. In 1950, he began his career as an arranger. He briefly worked for the Italian broadcasting service RAI in the mid-1950s before taking up a position as top studio arranger at RCA Victor, where he had the chance to collaborate with the likes of Renato Rascel, Rita Pavone, and Mario Lanza.

Later he started to compose music as a ghost writer for several film projects. He was an uncredited co-composer of Mario Nascimbene’s score to the drama ‘Morte Di Un Amico’ (Death of a Friend), released in 1959.In 1961, he made his film debut by writing and composing music for the Luciano Salce Italian war drama, ‘Il Federale’ (The Fascist). Thus began a fruitful partnership for both of them that would last years. The other Salce films for which Morricone composed music include, ‘Crazy Desire’ (1962), ‘Slalom’ (1966), and ‘El Greco’ (1966).

He co-founded the ‘Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’ (G.I.N.C.) in 1964. As part of G.I.N.C., he experimented with anti-musical systems and noise techniques to explore or create new definitions of music ensemble or “New Consonance”.Performing and producing avant-garde free improvisations, the group released seven albums, ‘Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’ (1966), ‘The Private Sea of Dreams’ (1967), ‘Improvisationen’ (1968), ‘The Feed-back’ (1970), ‘Improvvisazioni a Formazioni Variate’ (1973), ‘Nuova Consonanza’ (1975) and ‘Musica su Schemi’ (1976).Morricone established the ‘Forum Music Village’ in 1969 in Rome. It is a joint-effort between him, Armando Trovajoli, Luis Bacalov, Piero Piccioni, and Enrico De Melis. Besides being the studio where Morricone has produced all his compositions in the last 40 years, it also has hosted several prominent musicians.

His music adds character and layers to films. Be it comedies, spaghetti westerns, dramas, or horrors, he is equally at ease. He has worked with Sergio Corbucci, Sergio Sollima, Édouard Molinaro, Marco Bellocchio, Sergio Leone, Mauro Bolognini (with whom he did 15 films), Dario Argento and others.He has collaborated at the international level as well, producing scores for films with Marlon Brando, Jerzy Kawalerowicz, Georges Lautner and others.
