Ennio Morricone. Il più grande di tutti ricordato da Carpenter, Zimmer, Vangelis, Massive Attack e tanti altri

Come era prevedibile, la morte di Ennio Morricone ha suscitato la commozione non solo dell'Italia ma di tutto il mondo, compresa una folta schiera di artisti internazionali

Come era prevedibile, la morte di Ennio Morricone ha suscitato la commozione non solo dell’Italia ma di tutto il mondo, compresa una folta schiera di artisti internazionali come i Massive Attack e il compositore Hans Zimmer, così come volti nostrani quali Carlo Verdone e il Presidente del Consiglio Giuseppe Conte. A dedicare un messaggio al maestro romano anche chi non hai mai avuto occasione di lavorarci insieme ma che, rivela, avrebbe tanto voluto realizzare quel sogno, ad esempio Vangelis, o ancora i New Order e Anton Corbijn, con quest’ultimo che dice di aver tentato di convincere Morricone a comporre nuove musiche per il suo film, The American, ma di non esserci riuscito (una missione realizzata successivamente invece da Quentin Tarantino per The Hateful Eight).

Di seguito tutti gli omaggi e i messaggi di ricordo.

We lost a truly great composer today. RIP Ennio Morricone. In 2009 I so wanted to use Ennio Morricone’s touch in my film The American that I went to see him to discuss this. I wanted the American to be a kind of western and had meant for it to have ‘Il Americano’ for a title. That is incorrect Italian for The American but it would show you that the protagonist didn’t belong there and it had a nod to the Sergio Leone films that of course were Morricone’s playground so to speak. He kindly invited me to his apartment in Rome where we discussed the idea thru a translator. His English wasn’t great nor was my Italian. But he played some music on the piano that he wanted me to consider. This photo was taken during the wonderful rendition of these songs that he had in a drawer as he said. I wanted original music so the collaboration never came off unfortunately. A few years later Tarantino was more successful. . . #enniomorricone #italy #music_composer #the_mission #thegood_thebad_and_ theugly #onceuponatimeinthewest
