Ennio Morricone is rightly considered one of the world’s greatest film composers. Much sought after by filmmakers the world over for his matchless versatility and productivity, Ennio’s innovative sounds and truly exhaustive range of musical styles have complemented almost every conceivable film genre.
Between 2014 and 2019, he conducted 111 concerts in Europe alone for a combined total of more than 800,000 audience members. Following his retirement in 2019, Ennio began working with his son, composer and conductor Andrea Morricone, and producer GEA Live, on the format for a concert centering on his body of work. The time had come to treat fans around the world to something new. Before his passing on July 6th 2020, the Maestro had curated the program for a new production featuring his original orchestrations accompanied by clips from the greatest classic films, and had handpicked soloists to be featured onstage alongside symphony orchestras and choirs.
