R.I.P. Thanks for all the great music. He was truly a one of a kind composer.

Very sad news...  :'( He was a big part of the launching of Eastwood' s career, with his scoring of Men with no name trilogy.  :smitten:

My regret is he never worked  with director Eastwood...

Addendum:ah, I found this about the reason why

He was my favorite composer. It is definitely the end of an era. Morricone’s scores were quite unique. Someone like him will likely not be heard from again.

I was sad to see this news this morning too. His score for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is probably my favorite of all time. I also love his work in Compañeros.

I couldn't have said it better.

Here he conducts one of the best compositions ever, from one of cinema's greatest scenes ever. His Ecstasy of Gold.

RIP Ennio Morricone.  :'(

Ennio Morricone was a great musician, a great artist, a great man of cinema.

He was my favorite composer.

Sergio Leone didn't consider him like his composer but like his scriptwriter.

His legacy is unprecedented and should never be forgotten.

         Morricone's Soundtracks to Once Upon A Time In The West and In America are probably some of the most haunting music I ever heard. Especially the closing theme for OUATITW. That final scene where Claudia Cardinale is bringing water to the town workers alongside Bronson escorting a dead Robards on a horse is quite moving. There are some similarity to the Soundtracks of both those movies if you listen carefully.

What are your favorite Morricone scores? Mine is "The Mission," followed by "The Untouchables." I also really like his score for "In the Line Of Fire."

For me it's the Once Upon A Time Soundtracks. Obviously the Spaghetti Westerns are there as well. For that time that music was off the charts beyond original.

I just saw this posted online where it shows a picture of Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone as primary school classmates. I don't remember if I ever heard that the two went to school together (assuming that the photo is labeled correctly, of course).

I don't recall the Once Upon a Time in America score offhand, but the music in Once Upon a Time in the West is beautiful and at times haunting (I've only seen America once, but have seen West a few times).

I've never seen this photo before, but I do remember reading that they were classmates. Great find, Christopher!
