by | Jan 1, 2017 | Classical CD Reviews

A unique collection of Morricones’ greatest hit scores on Decca Records.

ENNIO MORRICONE – 60 Years of Music [TrackList follows] – Czech National Sym. Orch./ Morricone – Decca B0025323-02 [11/11/16] *****:

This is the first CD of the greatest film score hits of Morricone which he himself has conducted, recorded and curated in order to put together a legacy for his fans to enjoy. At age 88 now, he’s still going strong. It includes everything from his famous film music from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly to his recent Academy Award-winning score for Quentin Tarantinos’ The Hateful Eight.  He collaborated with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra for these brand new recordings as part of his 60th anniversary as a composer and conductor. He said the quality of their performance of his work was truly outstanding.

This is an outstanding CD which shouldn’t be missed by any fans of his many films.
