THE ENNIO MORRICONE SONGBOOK, VOL. 3, THE 70s
Perhaps Europe's best-known film composer, Ennio Morricone was born in Rome on 10 November 1928. The son of a trumpeter, Morricone replaced his father in Constantino Ferri's band in 1945, and, while performing, studied orchestration, composition, and conducting at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia. He graduated in 1956, and, to supplement his earnings, wrote radio and television arrangements for RAI's light music orchestra. This resulted in a contract with RCA, where Morricone went on to write an astonishing 500 arrangements for artists as diverse as Little Peggy March, Mario Lanza, and Paul Anka. Morricone worked for RCA between 1959 and 1967, and his work included Paul Anka's Italian smash hit Ogni Volta.
Morricone's first film score was for the comedy 'Il Federale' in 1961. Three years later, he was hired by Sergio Leone to write the score for 'A Fistful of Dollars', which he wrote under the pseudonym Dan Savio. In stark contrast to American western theme songs, which were often folk-based, Morricone used a haunting combination of cries and a repeated whistled phrase in 'A Fistful of Dollars'. He then worked on Leone's trilogy of 'spaghetti westerns,' and those in turn led to offers of work from leading European directors. Among the best-known films to bear Morricone's trademark skills are 'Battle of Algiers' (directed by Pontecorvo in 1966), 'Big Birds, Little Birds' (directed by Pasolini in 1966), and '1900' (directed by Bertolucci in 1976).
