Once Upon... Ennio Morricone: a tribute to his film music

Once Upon a Time in the West. Once Upon a Time in America. Once Upon... Ennio Morricone.

Few artists have left an imprint like that of Ennio Morricone (1928-2020). His decisive collaboration with Sergio Leone changed the musical landscape of the Far West forever, and introduced us to one-of-a-kind musical textures that combined the sublime and the bizarre, in a way in which no-one had previously dared. His over 500 soundtracks would come to consolidate the legend and unique musical voice of Ennio Morricone.

During a stunning and busy career, the Italian Maestro succeeded on every level of the musical spectrum: as a film composer and as an absolute creator; as the father of widely known popular tunes and as the author of contemporary experimental music: as a creative partner of iconic directors - Sergio Leone, Brian De Palma, Quentin Tarantino, Elio Petri, Dario Argento, Giuseppe Tornatore – and as the musical soul of little known films that are remembered today, precisely, because of his music.

His legacy includes unforgettable scores such as those for Once Upon a Time in the West, Cinema Paradiso, The Untouchables, Novecento, The Sicilian Clan... FIMUCITÉ, in cooperation with the European Film Philharmonic Institute, is proud to present this tribute to the film music of Ennio Morricone, which pays homage to the incomparable talent of the Italian Maestro, who created soundtracks both fascinating and timeless.
