The first major work devoted entirely to the film discography of maestro Ennio Morricone. The only one of its kind, it is the brainchild of the collector, author and film expert Maurizio Baroni, who draws from his own boundless archive to create a comprehensive review covering over fifty years of his prestigious career, much of it previously unpublished, including the maestro’s autographed manuscript scores, soundtrack record covers and much more.
Expertly accompanying the over 550 images in the volume are texts by Germano Barban, a journalist and expert on cinema and film music, and impassioned speeches by great directors and actors, revealing some of the background to this extraordinary success and the reasons for the influence that Ennio Morricone has exerted on the collective imagination through his music. A full-scale homage to this great Italian film music composer, undoubtedly the most famous in the world.
