The Italian composer, who won Oscar, Grammy and two Golden Globes comes on stage in Budapest next January.
Everyone heard about Ennio Morricone or at least about his film music. A Fistful of Dollars; For a Few Dollars More; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; Once Upon a Time in the West; Once Upon a Time in America; Inglourious Basterds… it’s all his work. And we are so excited, because the internationally renowned Italian film composer brings his 60 Years of Music Tour to Budapest Arena on 17 January 2016.
The 60 Years of Music World Tour will launch in Prague on the 15 January 2016, which is home to Morricone’s beloved Czech National Symphony Orchestra, and which accompanied the Maestro on his previous international tours. And as with previous tours, the production will feature over 200 musicians and singers on stage.
In connection with his new world tour, Morricone said: “The last show in Dublin was such a moving experience, there was such a strong emotional connection made between every member of the orchestra, the choir and the audience. I just had to return to your lovely city and recreate that magic one more time. It was one of the most memorable experiences I ever had in my lifetime in music. Next year I will perform a whole new program with new highlights, which I am already working on. Of course, there will always be the classic pieces from the great Sergio Leone westerns and The Mission. But overall, the experience will be different this time. I plan to include a suite, for example, with pieces of music, which I composed for 7 different movies which all won Oscars!”
Ennio Morricone is one of the most influential and undoubtedly the most famous contemporary composer. He has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television as well as over 100 absolute music works and is the only film composer in history to have received the honorary Academy Award for his lifetime achievement. Highlights include his scores for Once Upon a Time in the West, One Upon a time in America, A Fistful of Dollars, The Untouchables, The Mission, Cinema Paradiso, The Best Offer, etc. Morricone’s score for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly holds the number two position in the Top 200 ranking of best film soundtracks ever composed. So there’s no doubt: Morricone concert is a must-see!
