This obituary for Ennio Morricone appeared in the NME (New Music Express) - a famous rock music newspaper/magazine. It shows the scope of Morricone's influence across musical genres.
This obituary from the Irish Times...with a lot more commentary about Morricone's life, career and film music.
My favourite sound track of Ennio Morricone - Once Upon A Time In America...This is the haunting Deborah's Theme. Spoiler alert: the slide show that goes with it, tells the story. But the music is beautiful.
And just one more that I love...The Untouchables Theme (& opening titles if you watch the clip) Enjoy.
...and last Sunday ABC Radio National at 11am, the Music Show with Andrew Ford devoted the entire hour to a show about Ennio Morricone, called 'The Double Life of Ennio Morricone'. Composer Felicity Wilcox discusses his concert music as well as film scores. Interviews with Morricone by Andrew Ford are included as well. (Just scroll down & enjoy).
