Ennio Morricone's Wild Musical Imagination
Sunday, November 10, 2013
Composer Ennio Morricone has applied his wild musical imagination to over 500 film scores. Since the late 1950s, and continuing to today (Nov. 10 -- his 85th birthday!), Morricone has created a body of work that sounds like no other. His eccentric sense of instrumental color, his inventive ways of conveying mood and emotion, and his prolific creativity have assured his music is as surprising as it is powerful.
David Garland celebrates Ennio Morricone's 85th birthday with an hour of highlights from Morricone's vast oeuvre, including music from the films Once Upon a Time in the West, Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion, Il Trio Infernale, Uccellacci E Uccellini, A Fist Full of Dollars, and others.
