I just flipped through this today at a musicology conference. Looks very, very good. Morricone himself says so much about what he was thinking with so many of his best-known scores. An absolute gold mine. I'm ordering one for sure.
So much of this stuff gets reprinted from other publications, most of whch has only been available in italian and is so heavy translators have difficulty putting it into english. not so long ago there was a coffee table book with quite a few quotes from morricone about different films and directors. its possible one is taken from the other. There is a book in italian with the same title as this - whether it is the same one, first time in english, is not known to me. Be warned, as some of you will know, usually anything by miceli is as heavy as concrete and can only be interpreted by other composers and experienced musicologists. But buried among the reams of complexity, are often some choice morricone stories.
