IN MEMORIAM: Ennio Morricone Has Passed
Updated: Sep 21, 2021
In 2007, Italian composer Ennio Morricone won an Oscar for his lifetime achievement in music creation. Looking back on decades worth of films where the musical works of Ennio Morricone are present, it is then one truly realizes who we’ve lost.
His work can be heard in more than 500 films directed by well-known names like Mike Nichols, Bernardo Bertolucci, John Carpenter and Quentin Tarantino. Music created by Morricone for Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy goes down in the history books as some of the most western music created. His music career, starting back in the 1960s, would continue his whole life and in some years, Morricone was known to compose up to 20 films.
Ennio Morricone passed away today in Rome, Italy, his home since birth, at the age of 91.
