Ennio Morricone has won the Oscar for scoring The Hateful Eight by Quentin Tarantino

Ennio Morricone has composed about 500 scores, from “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” to “The Mission”, “Cinema Paradiso”, “Malena”, and in 2015 “The Hateful Eight” for which he has finally won his first Oscar at the age of 87.

Ennio Morricone has also composed pop songs such as “Se Telefonando” performed by Mina. In his early years he was an arranger, an orchestrator, a composer which helped him approach his first movie scores.

The style of Ennio Morricone is recognizable in most scores, especially the westerns by Sergio Leone, and the more romantic scores.
