The Best Ennio Morricone Film Soundtracks

Source: uDiscover Music.

Ennio Morricone was born in Rome on November 10, 1928 and he wrote his first composition at the age of six. He studied classical music and, after graduation, began writing scores for theatre and radio. He was hired as an arranger by the RCA label in Italy and also started writing for pop artists. In the mid-1960s he discovered Italy’s contemporary music scene and made boundary-pushing avant-garde music with Gruppo di Improvvisazione di Nuova Consonanza, a collective of experimental, improvisational composers. But it was his film soundtracks, of course, that brought him the most acclaim.
