Last night Italy aired a 2 part TV movie COME UN DELFINO, a true life story of Alessandro Dominici who had to give up swimming due to a heart condition. It was scored by Ennio Morricone. There is no clue about the score itself but someone recorded Morricone working with Flavia Astolfi on the isolated vocal part of it:
He has two films waiting in the wings to be scored. His complete album of his songs sung by Hayley Westenra is about to come out. He has recently worked on a number of commercials and ringtones. He has over 400 scores behind him.
He is 82 years old. If you can think of someone comparable at this level of activity let me know.
I can't think of a better definition of a true force of nature: Ennio Morricone.
I have the Hayley Westenra CD. It's beautiful. Fabulous orchestrations as usual.
