Just found out that Il Maestro died. He was a true legend and I'm so lucky to have seen him in concert last year. The Ecstasy of Gold is such a masterwork and is running through my head right now. R.I.P Ennio.
^^ and lost touch until he thought of his old pal for AFoD
Leone stopped Kubrick hiring him for A Clockwork Orange ...
RIP "Dan Savio"
I always enjoyed film scores going to the cinema in the 70's but it was Ennio's score for “Once upon a time in the West” that really cemented my love of them and his music in particular.
He was my absolute favourite soundtrack composer and all-time no 1 for creating such simple but beautiful melodies and he has left us such a body of work.
Thanks and RIP Ennio.
Once upon a time in the west, did it for me as well. A true genius , rest easy sir.
