Morricone celebrates 60 years at the top

The film soundtrack work of Italian composer Ennio Morricone will be celebrated by Morricone 60, a new collection due in October.

This collection of greatest hits marks Ennio Morricone’s 60th anniversary as a composer and conductor and goes right back to Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and is bang up to date thanks to the inclusion of music from Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

This collection is “conducted, recorded and curated” by Morricone himself and features brand new recordings with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, with whom he’s collaborated on major international movie scores.

Morricone signs a new contract with Decca. Left to right: Concert Producer Floris Douwes, Maestro Ennio Morricone, Decca MD Rebecca Allen and Decca executive Dominic Jones

The 88-year old Morricone actually signed to Decca Records earlier this month (see photo above) after his Academy Award winning Hateful Eight soundtrack was put out by the label last year.

Morricone 60 will be issued on CD and 2LP vinyl on 7 October 2016.
