Maggie will talk about the Italian maestro Ennio Morricone’s mastery of a wide range of genres such as comedy, western, drama and horror, which made him a musician ahead of his time. His meticulous craftsmanship and ear for orchestration, harmony, melody and rhythm resulted in music that was perfectly balanced, and as with all master composers, every note was there for a reason.
Morricone was an outstanding musician who changed the history of music and cinema forever. He was a true partner to the directors he worked with, helping them realize visions, often elevating them to heights that even they didn’t know they were able to attain. His heart, mind, and body may have resided in his beloved Italian homeland, but by the time he left us just a few weeks ago, his music belonged to the world.
