Ennio Morricone’s Hole Filled

Ennio Morricone, one of the world’s greatest and most prolific film composers, picked up an honorary Oscar at the last Academy Awards. Clint Eastwood’s introduction was doddering, and the montage of “famous Morricone moments” could have been better (they didn’t even use the original music from the films in some cases!), but the gesture was appreciated and long overdue. “I have received so many beautiful, incredible prizes, but there was a little hole – maybe the Oscar fills the hole.”

Here’s 17 tracks from the man they call Il Maestro.

  1. Slalom
  2. Deep Down
  3. L’Ultimo
  4. Giu’ La Testa
  5. Titoli Di Testa
  6. Il Grande Silenzio
  7. Seguita
  8. Cannibal
  9. Indagine Su Un Cittadino Al Di Sopra Di Ogni Sospetto
  10. L’Assoluto Naturale
  11. The Battle of Algiers
  12. Hurry to Me
  13. Dies Irae Psichedelico
  14. La Califfa
  15. L’Estasi Dell’Oro
  16. Un Uomo Da Rispettare
  17. Nadine
