RIP Ennio Morricone

Sad to see Morricone has left us. Obviously, he will be remembered particularly for his contribution to Spaghetti westerns, but I think my favourite is probably his (joint) score for Cinema Paradiso. A delightful film and the highly memorable theme music, somehow perfectly captures its wistful nature.

My daughter said she thought Radio 3 was broken this morning because they were playing spaghetti western music. :slightly_smiling_face:

A sad day indeed: I will have to give my Dollars trilogy CD a spin later on.

RIP Ennio. Some of the most haunting movie scores ever.

Think I’ll play this tonight, in honour…

Sad. My favourite soundtrack composer. My Naim App says I have 284 albums of his music and I often turn to his music when I have a hard time deciding what to select to play.

One that needs to be played loud.
