Hello,

Just wanted to share with you some of the best film scores/sountrack/film music in history because I've been in an Ennio Morricone mood for a few months by now. When I think of it, Ennio is 87 now (on his 88) and he's live in the Sportpaleis of Antwerp next month.  :o

However, the tune that is constantly in my mind now comes from his  *ar pupil Luis Bacalov: Il Grande Duello (Parte Decima). It really got me.



Also a great track of his is Tema per la chitarra from the Damiano Damiani film "El chucho, quien sabe?", the first Italian Zapata film. Spaghetti Western at its finest for me (soundtrack supervised by Morricone).



2015 will always be the year I discovered Bacalov's greatness.  :cool

Some lesser known tracks by Ennio Morricone includes Una Cascata Tutta D'Oro, from Jose Giovanni's film "Le ruffian" (starring Lino Ventura):


Then also from a Giovanni film starring Lino Ventura. The Main Theme of "Le rapace" ("Cuando Llega el dia") by François de Roubaix, featuring Los Incas:



May I ask you to share some really film music, meant to be written for a film and not some pop songs that have been recuperated for a film such as Roy Orbison's Pretty Woman, for instance.  ;)

    Kelly's Heroes still has my favorite soundtrack. Good ol' Clint Eastwood movies are still the best.

    Furthering the Eastwood thing, Lalo Schifrin is the man.

    I stumbled on this in my related videos when listening to some Morricone stuff.

    Patricia Janečková performing C'era una volta il west



    Flawless! I cannot believe she was just fourteen at that time. Beautiful soprano voice, like those that Ennio dots on. The performer on the original version is of course Edda Sabatini (married to Giacomo Dell'Orso). She was great too but I love Patricia's performance better.  ;)

    Think opera is the ancient tv.
    So, my favorite Mozart's aria.
    Do not stop, look till end.
    It's only few minutes.

    Once Upon A Time In The West by Patricia Janeckova is one of my favorites.

    Just realised how well mastered the work of Raymond Lefebvre has been. Really film musicians are so underrated in general, especially this one. The score for "Le gendarme et les extra-terrestres".  So many themes he's put in there. Really joyful. It fits very well with the topic of the film and you could see the influence of disco in those late seventies. Raymond Lefebvre is known for his work for the Louis de Funès films.  :cool

    I've only just learned that the greatest musician of all time passed away eleven days ago. My heart is broken.



    Hoping that up there he joined his guitar player and whistler Alessandro Alessandroni and his trumpest player Michele Lacerenza, all geniuses whose music I'll listen to for the rest of my life. According to his wish, the Mission soundtrack music was played at his funeral. I will have to express a wish that it could be played at mine too or else the "Once Upon a Time in the West" finale. Ennio Morricone was particularly attached to the Mission soundtrack as he proudly said multiple time that western scores were only 10% of his catalogue. Ennio's music has helped me a lot. Especially in stressful periods, I would listen to this relaxing music playlist, to appease myself. Thank you, Maestro !
