Ennio Morricone the legendary Oscar-winning film composer passed away in Rome yesterday. He was 91 years old and he was one of the most remarkable Film music composers in history. The way he gave a role to music in film making changed the art of film forever. He made of music in Film more than just a tone-setter, he created themes that are now engraved in the worlds cultural memory.

Ennio Morricone scored more than 500 films and was a winner and nominee for numerous BAFTA awards and Golden Globes, and an Academy Award. Some of his most famous scores include Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America. He also famously scored Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso, Roland Joffé’s The Mission and most recently Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

Rest In Peace Ennio Morricone.
