The concert is part of a European tour marking 60 years of Morricone’s musical career. The tour started in Prague on 15 January. The programme includes selections from the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s new film “The Hateful Eight” and music for seven Oscar-winning movies.
Born in 1928 in Rome, Morricone has composed music for about 500 films, including Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom”, Roland Joffe’s “The Mission“ and two feature films about John Paul II by Italian director Giacomo Battiato.
Morricone also has many works of classical music to his credit, including “Tra cielo e terra“, dedicated to the late Polish-born pope.
In 2007 Morricone received an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. (mk/pk)
