Ennio Morricone

Sometime in the early 1960s, Mr. Morricone gave up the trumpet of his youth to focus solely on writing music. His oeuvre covers soaring, string-filled compositions (“Cinema Paradiso,” “Days of Heaven”) as well as the instantly identifiable pieces he created for Leone films, now classics. Those genre-bending scores included sounds like train whistles and church bells, electric guitars and jew’s-harps.
