Ennio Morricone (born 10 November 1928 in Rome, Italy) is an Italian composer and conductor known for composing the soundtrack of more than 500 films and television series. He received an honorary Oscar in 2006 and won the Oscar for best soundtrack in 2016 for the film The Hateful Eight.

His compositions have been part of more than 20 award-winning films, as well as symphonic and choral pieces. They emphasize, among others, their works in films of the spaghetti western, of the hand of their friend Sergio Leone, like For a handful of dollars of 1964, the death had a price of 1965, the good one, the ugly one and the bad one of 1966 or Until his time came in 1968. However, his work extends to many genres of composition, making him one of the most versatile composers in the history of cinema and also the most influential of the twentieth century. His compositions for Days of Heaven of 1978, The Mission of 1986 or Cinema Paradiso of 1988 are cataloged as authentic masterpieces.

Ennio_Morricone’s Biography

Born in Rome, Morricone began playing the trumpet when he was a child and by the time he was six he had already composed his first work. He studied at the National Academy of Santa Cecilia at the age of nine, where his father, Mario Morricone, who was a musician, enrolled him. When he was twelve he entered the conservatory, enrolling in a four-year harmony program, which ended in six months. He received his trumpet diploma in 1946 and from that year he began to work professionally composing the music of Il Mattino (Morning). After graduating in 1954, he began as a ghost writer, composing music for films, which were attributed to famous musicians of the time. Soon it gained popularity due to the composition of background music for radio programs and shortly after would jump to the big screen.

In the 1950s he received a degree in instrumentation. It was also granted by the composer Goffredo Petrassi a diploma in composition. In 1955, Morricone dedicated himself to arranging the music of other composers who were already established in the cinema. Soon, Sergio Leone, a childhood friend of Morricone, would require him to be the composer of the soundtracks of his films. Together they created a different point of view of the traditional Western with the film A handful of dollars.

In the 80s and 90s, Morricone continued composing for Leone, as in Once Upon A Time in America (1984). He also composed for other directors such as Roland Joffé in The Mission (1986), Brian de Palma in The Untouchables of Eliot Ness (1987) or Giuseppe Tornatore in Cinema Paradiso (1988). Other more recent compositions of remarkable character are in the films Malèna (2000), Fields of Hope (2005) or Baarìa (2009).

Morricone has received two Grammy awards, three Golden Globes, five BAFTA, ten David by Donatello, eleven Nastro d’argento and the Polar Music Prize in 2010, considered the latter as the Nobel Prize for music. In the 2006 Oscar Awards he received the honorary Oscar “for his magnificent and multifaceted contributions in the art of film music”. In 2016 he received the Oscar in the category of best original soundtrack for the film ‘The Odious Eight’, after having been nominated six times in this category in previous editions, thus becoming the longest-winner in that category in the history of The Oscar Awards. Throughout his career, Morricone has sold more than 70 million records.
