Subject: Ennio Morricone 1928-2020 Tue Jul 07, 2020 7:58 am
Renowned for scoring Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Westerns, the Oscar winner also produced the sounds and music for 'Days of Heaven,' 'The Mission,' 'Cinema Paradiso' , 'The Hateful Eight', and 'Once Upon A Time in The West'.
Ennio Morricone, the Oscar winner whose haunting, inventive scores expertly accentuated the simmering, dialogue-free tension of the spaghetti Westerns directed by Sergio Leone, has died. He was 91.
Ennio Morricone was born on Nov. 10, 1928, in a residential area of Rome. His father, Mario, was a trumpet player, and the trumpet was the first instrument the youngster played. He began writing music at age 6.
