ACADEMY AWARD WINNER ENNIO MORRICONE – THE 50 YEARS OF MUSIC TOUR
The most prolific composer in the history of film music will be performing the greatest works from his career that spans over 50 years with a full symphony orchestra and a 70 member polyphonic choir.
The five-time Oscar nominee has scored over 500 films, the best known being the classic westerns including “For A Few Dollars More” and “The Good The Bad and the Ugly” as well as other iconic movies such as: “The Untouchables”, “The Mission”, “Cinema Paradiso” and more recently Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” and before that “Kill Bill”.
Morricone is the only composer ever to win the prestigious honorary Oscar award (2007) in recognition of his “magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music.” He was also nominated for a further five Oscars throughout his career and has won three Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, five BAFTAs, seven David di Donatello Awards, eight Nastro d’Argento Awards as well as the Polar Music Prize. In 2009 the President of France bestowed him with the prestigious Légion d’honneur.
Having performed in such prestigious venues as the Great Hall in Bejing, the General Assembly Hall of the UN in New York and the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Kremlin in Moscow and the Arena di Verona, the Italian Maestro’s concert in Luxembourg is an unmissable opportunity to experience the astounding work of this musical genius. The concerts will trace the composer’s career featuring compositions from his 50-year career composing music for film.
