Morricone and Sergio Leone were classmates in elementary school [9] and in 1964 began to collaborate. In the same period Morricone began to collaborate with Bernardo Bertolucci. The first soundtrack he wrote for Leone was for the film For a Fistful of Dollars, in 1964, continuing throughout the next series of spaghetti westerns directed by Roman director: For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly , once upon a time in the West (1,260,000 copies sold in France), [10] head down. A partnership that lasted until the last of Leone film, the gangster-movie Once Upon a Time in America, fellowship that allowed him to compose some of his most popular music, greatly contributing to the success of the Leone films.

However, as they are the most famous and imitated, soundtracks written for Leo are only a part of the creativity of the composer, who has experimented with almost all film genres: from science fiction to thrillers, from erotic films to comedy costume, ending with the melodrama and historical films. In this sense, extremely varied and often curious his collaborations with many Italian and international directors such as Carlo Verdone, John Carpenter and Bernardo Bertolucci.

C'era una volta il West (Once upon a time in the west) - Ennio Morricone
C'era una volta il West - Ennio Morricone




The music was written by composer Ennio Morricone, regular contributor Leone, under the direction of the director before filming began. As in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, the haunting music contributes to the size of the film and, like that of the said film, is considered one of the greatest compositions of Morricone.

The film features leitmotiv that relate to each of the main characters (each with their own theme music), as well as the spirit of the American West.  Particularly interesting is the voice without words of Italian singer Edda Dell'Orso during the musical theme of Jill. Leone was the desire to have music available and played during the shoot. Lion made to Morricone to compose the soundtrack before shooting began, and reproduced the music in the background for the actors on the set.

Except for about a minute of the reason "As a judgment" before Harmonic kill the three bandits, no soundtrack is played until the end of the second scene, when Henry Fonda made his first entry. This may not seem particularly strange, even if the Morricone's music is usually considered to be a vital part of the westerns of Sergio Leone films. During the beginning of the film, Leone and Morricone instead make use of a number of natural sounds, for example, a wheel spinning in the wind, the sound of a train, locusts, shotguns, of pigeons wings etc., In addition to ' harmonica played by Bronson's character, since the accordion sound "inside the movie" rather than an actual soundtrack

La Resa dei Conti - Ennio Morricone



The showdown is in fact also the title of a song written by Ennio Morricone for the score of For a Few Dollars More. Even the nickname given to the Cuchillo character played by Tomas Milian is taken from the nickname given to a minor character in the same film of Leo. There is also an obvious similarity between Cuchillo and Kikuchiyo, the character played by Toshiro Mifune in The Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa.

Per un pugno di dollari - Ennio Morricone
Per un pugno di  dollari - Ennio Morricone



For a Fistful of Dollars is a 1964 film, the first of the so-called trilogy of the dollar (with For a Few Dollars More, 1965 and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, 1966), directed by Sergio Leone and starring Clint Eastwood.

Cornerstone of the spaghetti western genre, is erroneously considered the first film of the genre: in Europe, before 1964, several Westerns were out, but without achieving the same success ; For a fistful of dollars, on the other hand, he reinvented the genre, now in decline, redefining the western archetypes.

The film is a remake of The Samurai Challenge (Yojimbo) by Akira Kurosawa.

Because it was the first film of its kind to be shown in the United States, many of the crew members and the cast took American names: Sergio Leone used the name Bob Robertson (in memory of his father Vincenzo, known as d ' art of Roberto Roberti), Ennio Morricone soundtrack signed with the pseudonym Dan Savio (but in some titles was renamed Leo Nichols), while Gian Maria Volonte appears as John Wells.

The soundtrack, which had a great success on the music market, is famous for the song booed, executed by the master Alessandro Alessandroni.

The Mission - Gabriel's Oboe - Ennio Morricone
I tried to do the styles, insert OTS and fix with Creator





Gabriel's Oboe is a piece of music written by Ennio Morricone for the film Mission, nominated for the Oscar for best soundtrack, in 1986. A version with the words, entitled Nella Fantasia, whose text was written by Chiara Ferraù, obtained a conspicuous international success and was performed by numerous artists.

Characteristic of the composition is the ability to transmit, with a few instruments among which in the foreground an oboe, a celestial sense that few other pieces of music can transmit.

The piece has been taken up by many television commercials, among which the most transmitted is the spot of the Catholic Church for the donation of eight per thousand.

South America 1750, in the small rainforest above the Iguazu Falls on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Father Gabriel is a Jesuit missionary who after a tiring ascent of lonely waterfalls, reaches a tribe of Guaraní still in the wild, and manages to approach them thanks to the music of his oboe. They had already martyred a Jesuit who had tried to convert them to the faith of God, crucified and thrown alive in the Iguazú river to the falls. Meanwhile in a small town in the province of Misiones in Argentina, the slave hunter Rodrigo Mendoza kills his brother Felipe in a public duel, after discovering his relationship with Carlotta, a woman loved by both. Overwhelmed by remorse, Mendoza decides to let himself die in the cell, but Father Gabriel, having learned about the incident, convinces him to transform his rejection of life into a penance with which he can atone for his faults by making him climb the falls as a sign of purgatory. Penance translates into a tiring transport of equipment over waterfalls and very steep crags.

Ultimatolo, Rodrigo decides to put himself at the service of the missionaries and the Indians, choosing to take the vows to become a Jesuit missionary too. Over time missionaries have made various missions among the Indians by building a real village located in the Rio Grande del Sud and offering protection to the Indians and avoiding them being enslaved to work in the plantations, but this example alarms the representatives of the Spanish and Portuguese settlers who see these missions as inconvenient and potential threats to their economic affairs. After the Treaty of Madrid the settlers welcomed a papal envoy, Cardinal Luis Altamirano, who ordered the religious and natives to abandon their lands in favor of the European landowners, while remaining impressed by the great goodness of the Jesuit missions. The cardinal is warned by the viceroy delegates of New Spain and Portugal who come to threaten even the very existence of the Jesuit order in the entire Catholic world. A look in the city of Asunción shows how ready an army of Portuguese is composed also of guaranì traitors of their own people.
