Ennio Morricone: the “music craftsman”

Fans of cinema know very well this name: Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack, known all over the world, will be closely linked to some of the most important films. “Once upon a time in America”, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” and “Cinema Paradiso” are just a few masterpieces accompanied by his music. Not only classic movies because Morricone’s music is also modern and relevant: “The Hateful Eightis the most concrete example of his transversality.

A music that makes cinema and films more profound, less trivial and even more harmonious and organized. Musical notes that underline scenes, change of register and that matched with the different situations. Timeless soundtracks but also limitless. Many scenes are remembered for the musical accompaniment and not the reverse. Cinema bends to Ennio Morricone’s music

Ennio Morricone is a peculiar figure: extremely private, but always available. “Constancy” is the word that distinguish him: constancy that he put every day in his work and that gets him to obtain the success that are there for all to see. A constancy which leads to the quest of perfection, the only attitude that get you further, out of comfort zone. An attitude that put you on to experience new creative sounds, to look for something different from the rest. Ennio Morricone’s music has only one possible outcome: to amaze everyone. It’s pure poetry littered with notes, it’s a set of magical feelings and moments of self-reflection.

The awards achieved in his own career are only the natural consequence of an endless and timeless talent and of an artistic sensibility out of the ordinary.

We were talking about the quest of perfection but we should add dedication, the desire not to be content, precision and experience. All elements that, in addition to describe him as a genuine artist, give him something in common with a craftsman. A “music craftsman” that take the musical notes, work it in a beautiful and patiently way and finally turn it in a flow of emotion, but above all in a bundle of beauty. A beauty that makes movies great but also make us better. Because the music speaks directly to our heart and his music is not an exception. In fact, it gives us a spot of color and makes possible to find harmony. Our inner harmony.
