On July 6, 2020, the Italian composer Ennio Morricone died in Rome at age 91. He died in hospital having fractured his femur in a fall some days ago.
With our “Tribute to Ennio Morricone” we salute a giant of music and film with a concert program of his legendary film-scores. With scoring over 500 movies in his 70-plus year career, you can probably count on one hand the number of composers who had as much influence on film scores as Ennio Morricone.
With his death at 91, the entire music world lost one of the most influential, beloved, and listened-to film composers. From his signature epic scores on Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Westerns in the ’60s to the films of Fellini, Pasolini, Giuseppe Tornatore and many other European and American directors, including one of his greatest admirers, Quentin Tarantino.
MEPRO provides the music material for many of Morricone’s immortal scores and melodies for orchestra concert performances, as well as licensing and producing visual content for a projection/LED-screen, if requested.
