Ennio Morricone

Editor's Choice

Possessed of a rare gift for musical storytelling, Ennio Morricone, was beloved by generations of film fans across genres from Spaghetti Western to thriller. Director Sergio Leone worked exclusively with the Italian Maestro following the success of 1964's A Fistful of Dollars, and has described Morricone's scores as "indispensable", acknowledging how the music "underlines actions and feelings more than the dialogue." This retrospective album features Morricone himself conducting his own selection of music from a catalogue spanning more than 500 works. Opening with the famous 'Gabriel's Oboe' and 'Falls' theme from The Mission, this album is a wonderfully curated and very personal look back at a musical life that brought huge joy to so many. read more
