Product Notes

Born in 1928, Morricone trained at the Santa Cecilia conservatoire in Rome, and soon began to make a name for himself in Italy as both a trumpeter in light-music orchestras and as a composer and arranger. But it was with the soundtrack to A Fistful of Dollars in 1964 that he gained international attention, and thereafter established his reputation with a hatful of contributions to movies which at the same time made the name of Clint Eastwood as a gum-chewing hardball hero. Morricone's scores defined the mood of Sergio Leone's pictures: spare, precise, instantly memorable. Enea Leone has selected and arranged the themes from the Leone/Eastwood 'dollar' trilogy alongside later classics directed by Leone such as Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America. He has also ventured into the film composer's later career, with themes from Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion, My Name Is Nobody, The Mission, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, Love Affair and the music he compiled for Tarantino's 2009 epic Inglourious Basterds. In 2007, following five nominations, Morricone finally won the Film & TV Music Award for Lifetime Achievement, and in 2016 an Oscar for the best original score for Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight (2015). If belatedly, the awards recognized Morricone's mastery at drawing in a viewer to a scene; capturing a character; underscoring dialogue and driving forward the director's vision of a movie in terms that spoke to millions of people. While piano versions of Morricone's scores are widely available, his music fits the guitar admirably, as Enea Leone demonstrates on this new recording.
