Impossible to single one thing out since there is so much, but since nobody else has mentioned it (indeed I don't think I have ever seen anyone mention it in my 25 years of reading about Ennio Morricone on the internet), I will throw the unbelievable theme from Quartiere into the mix.

It is indeed stunningly beautiful and deserves wider exposure. I think I’ve only seen it on the 2-disc Virgin America Film Music 1966 to 1987 compilation.

Isn't it included on the cd gem 2041. It has three scores on it (giardino Delle delizie, uomo proiettile and quartiere )

I listened to this piece last night and my thoughts were exactly the same as yours; it is strange that this theme isn´t mentioned more often.

The exquisite violinist is Marise Regard. Morricone used her in his scores for Silvano Agosti (Quartiere, L´Uomo Proiettile and La Ragion Pura) and I also believe that it´s her violin we can hear in Fat Man and Little Boy. Does anyone know if her contributions were choices from Agosti or Morricone?

Well I’ve only seen it on the Film Music 1966 to 1987 compilation and you can’t prove otherwise!

1) Miserere (from "The Mission")
The last track on the album which plays during the scene when the surviving native boys and girls departure from the remains of their tribes, masscared by european invaders.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p48cY7bV33w

2) Casualties of War
The end title music (first track on the album) is the perfect ending for the almost ubereable attrocities depicted in the movie. When the choral enters, sounds like all mankind is crying in despair.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjSif3GyZms

What else?


Um I have to say that as a collector of well over 1000 Records and 15000. CDs. The list of composers goes on forever. I have never really liked any of Morricone's music. The conveyor belt output. Quality sacrificed for Quantity. And the 'western' music. Frankly. Bores me.


Just guessing that, like the handful I have encountered over the years like you, of the 450 scores Morricone wrote you have only encountered mainly his American/British work which in a sense just scratches his surface. As to the conveyer belt remark I will let Morricone respond: "Just think how much for instance Bach has written: one work, a cantata per week. Just imagine how much he has written! The composer lives for writing, he realizes himself by writing. If he does not write, he fears that he won't be able to write at all anymore." Personally I can't think of another composer who can approach Morricone in the areas of depth, range and innovation except the one you have the baton of. BTW he is the only one.

Kind of surprised (and then again not) that Professione figlio (Bugie bianche) hasnt got a mention. So here it is.

Some great ones mentioned so far, however there are so many pieces that it is difficult to choose, as EM is my favourite composer and his music moves me like no other, however I will offer up some of my favourites, often featuring solo instruments which he was so fond of showcasing:

Tema Di Peyrol, from THE ROVER (L'AVVENTURIERO)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaRJNmkL7OU

Soranzo, from ADDIO FRATELLO CRUDELE

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=soranzo+morricone

DOWN THE ANCIENT STAIRWAY (PER LE ANTICHE SCALE)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ambhpn00VzQ

La Cena, from LA CALIFFA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnEH5N2F1vQ

Togetherness, from LOLITA

One should read the entire thread before making such ludicrous assumption, right?

Just remembered the last scene of Tornatore's "L'Uomo Delle Stelle"" (The Starmaker"), a movie that started like a light comedy but ended so sad and heartbreaking...

The main title is so comic...


And them we end up with "Voices" when the protagonist realizes the consequences of his acts...
