    R. I. P. Ennio Morricone

    Fuck. RIP Maestro. Before I could even possibly fathom the breadth of his work, and what he did to expand the lexicon of film music outside of the Hollywood tradition, he was one of the first to make me cry when I was just starting to get into this stuff. He was one of the very very few who was actually capable of touching of the heavens with his music. The kind of touch rarely equalled by even his own colleagues.

  2. Just before his passing Ennio Morricone wrote a touching goodbye... “I, Ennio Morricone, am dead. So I announce it to all the friends who have always been close to me and also to those who are a little far away, whom I greet with great affection. Impossible to name them all. But a special memory is for Peppuccio and Roberta, fraternal friends very present in the last years of our life. There is only one reason that prompts me to greet everyone like this and to have a funeral in private form: I don't want to disturb you. I warmly greet Ines, Laura, Sara, Enzo and Norbert for sharing a large part of my life with me and my family. I want to remember with love my sisters Adriana, Maria and Franca and their loved ones and to let them know how much I loved them. A full intense and profound greeting to my children, Marco, Alessandra, Andrea and Giovanni, my daughter-in-law Monica, and to my grandchildren Francesca, Valentina, Francesco and Luca. I hope they understand how much I loved them. Last but not least (Maria). I renew to you the extraordinary love that has held us together and that I am sorry to abandon. To you the most painful farewell. " Translation from Italian using Google Translate https://tg24.sky.it/spettacolo/musica/2020/07/06/necrologio-morricone

  3. “Dear Maestro unfortunately we never had the chance to meet and to have a conversation. Today I am going to tell you what I had in my heart but I never had the opportunity to express it to you. I always wanted to tell you when I heard from the very first time your music that I immediately understood your immense talent, your sense of melody and your innate capacity to touch directly with your music the soul of the people. And I have to thank you for that. I am sure that by now you travel to the place where harmony and music were born. And I hope that this makes you very content. Farewell,” - Vangelis http://elsew.com/data/latest.htm

  4. I will close the day with this elephantine listing of Morricone's work - and that's only his film and tv stuff, not counting stage, advertising and classical works. His musical genius is one thing, but genius doesn't come often with such eye-popping productivity. So one thing to remember is that the endless tributes to his Leone work or selected american scores, i. e. The Mission or The Thing point you to but a tiny fraction of what he did and as someone who relentlessly downloaded everything Morricone off Napster in the early 2000's i can attest tho the fact that many on this list that no one here has ever heard are way better or at least on par with his famous works. 1960s Year Title Director Notes 1960 Run with the Devil Mario Camerini Orchestrations only Score composed by Piero Piccioni, Lipstick Damiano Damiani Orchestrations only Score composed by Giovanni Fusco L'Avventura Michelangelo Antonioni Le Pillole Di Ercole Luciano Salce Rejected score Replaced by Armando Trovajoli 1961 The Fascist First full score The Last Judgment Vittorio De Sica Arrangements and Conducting only Score composed by Alessandro Cicognini, 1962 L'italiano ha 50 anni Francomaria Trapani Orchestrations only Composed by Gino Peguri, Gli Italiani e le vacanze Filippo Walter Ratti N/A I motorizzati Camillo Mastrocinque N/A Crazy Desire Luciano Salce N/A Il Sorpasso Dino Risi Orchestrations only Score composed by Riz Ortolani I due della legione Lucio Fulci Orchestrations only Score composed by Luis Bacalov Eighteen in the Sun Camillo Mastrocinque N/A A Girl...and a Million Luciano Salce N/A 1963 Violenza segreta Giorgio Moser Orchestrations only Score composed by Giovanni Fusco Il Successo Dino Risi N/A Le monachine Luciano Salce N/A El Greco N/A Gunfight at Red Sands Ricardo Blasco Mario Caiano First Western film score I basilischi Lina Wertmüller N/A 1964 Una Nuova fonte di energia Daniele G.

  6. I've been distraught for most of the day. Cannot listen to any of his music without feeling overwhelmed at the moment. I jotted down a personal homage on The Legacy of John Williams website, I hope it makes some sense: https://thelegacyofjohnwilliams.com/2020/07/06/rip-ennio-morricone/ Btw, here in Italy is basically a mourning day. He was loved by literally everyone.

  9. Deeply saddening news. More about his genius... A certain quote from Morricone has fascinated me ever since I came across it. In a course by Italian musicologist Sergio Miceli in which Morricone took part (what a dream that surely was!), talking about themes, Morricone said: It is truly a genius who on the one hand had such low regard for themes yet on the other wrote themes so deeply moving that they betray a deep understanding of their inner workings.

  12. I don’t understand the general dislike for Whedon’s Justice League? I get that Snyder had a new and “gritty” take on Superman and Batman, but very few people actually enjoyed those movies. I think Justice Leage was more of a reboot than a sequel. Yes, it follows the story set up in BvS, but it doesn’t really line up. The tone is different. The characters do not act the same. Batman is not a moron. Supes is not a stoic downer. Bringing in Elfman was a creative decision - among many others - to try to reboot the DCEU from the dark and boring movies that came before. And I think it was the right move. Far more classy than JXL. All in all, I think it worked. JL is as good as any Marvel movie, whereas Man of Steel and BVS is not. JL is not a perfect movie. But I think it’s a fun ride, it is more faithful to the core of the comics, and it’s not full of nonsensical moments like pa’ Kent stepping in to a tornado, pa’ Kent telling Clark that ‘maybe he shouldn’t save people’, Supes murdering Zod, hipster Lex, Batman’s logic on why Superman is ‘evil’ the ‘Supes killed those people in the desert’- conspiracy, the ’Martha’ moment, and on and on and on... My God! Why do people want Snyder to complete his “vision” when it was utterly crap???

    R.I.P. I was just listening to his music. Easily the greatest living film composer (when he was alive). Hans Zimmer chimes in and there will be more words from notable people coming:

    This is truly sad. My prayers go out to his family. I was not familiar with his body of work, but I remember The Mission. A powerful film with a powerful score. R.I.P. Maestro Ennio Morricone. May you be welcomed into Heaven with this:

    R. I. P. Ennio Morricone

    I was very saddened to hear of Ennio Morricone's passing this morning. He was truly one of the great composers of the last sixty years or so (and not just film composers) with a seemingly bottomless well of inspiration and genius from which to draw. I had the good fortune to see him conduct his music in concert six or seven times in London, including his first UK concert at the Barbican in 2001. I have particularly fond memories of his concert at the Hammersmith Apollo in 2006, as it was one that I took my Mum to see. She died on this day two years ago. Of all the wonderful pieces of music he wrote, the one that keeps going around my head today is the theme from La Ragion Pura - a typically gorgeous Morricone melody with ghostly trumpets (Morricone's instrument) interjecting in another key, as if commenting from another world. RIP Maestro. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  17. Howzat? The film make a billion space bucks, Gen Z losers devoured it like dessert, and it won elite gongs from Hollyweirdos coronating it as the new hip trend. Joker '19 is the new status quo for industry, critics and general audiences.

  20. From what I recall, it was Jonze’s decision, not the studio’s. He called Burwell beforehand to let him know he wasn’t going to use traditional score, to maintain the relationship, but ultimately asked him to write a little bit of music for the film.

  21. That only make things worse for him, considering much of the music is so similar to other Zimmer's scores for Nolan, specifically The Dark Knight Rises.

  22. Lol. I'll just say again, that I don't think this is a perfect effort, not that it has to be, but we can speculate all day long about what Williams would and would not have done, but none of us will ever know that. None of us are Williams. And no one else here that I know of has attempted to compose an entire score to begin to answer this question. I'm sure there's some alternate timeline somewhere where Williams did all of Potter instead of Star Wars or something. I'd be curious to hear what it sounds like, but honestly it could sound like anything.

  23. RIP Truly one of the great composers. It disgusted me to open the classical music Reddit and see the thread on his death being locked by the mods because he was "almost exclusively a film composer". Pathetic ignorant snobs.

    I can't say I enjoy all his output and I doubt many do. But a true testament of his versatility and adaptability is that although you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who genuinely enjoys all his output, you'd be equally hard pressed to find someone who doesn't appreciate anything from his output. That's a very hard thing to do

  25. Many people hate the film due to the fact that the mainstream audience sees it as THE edgy arthouse cinema masterpiece which it absolutely isn't. If you go that way to argue about the film you start headbutting with everyone. The reality, however, is that it's a decent film that thankfully achieved to take a broad audience out of their comfort zone. But it's not the ingenius social commentary everyone is talking about.

  26. I recommend to rather purchase from Presto Music, since the shipping's cheaper and they generally have sturdier packaging: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8785414--john-williams-in-vienna-cd-blu-ray-video-edition

  27. IMAGES would have been a much cooler choice. THE LONG GOODBYE is also cool, but more playful. IMAGES is the proper abrasive, avantgarde score that heady filmmakers should choose. And no, Alberto Iglesias has no relation to Julio and Enrique, AFAIK. It's a fairly common Spanish name.

    Thanks to have created a separate thread. It's a whole piece of the modern film music world that we lost today. A monument of film composing. Requiescat in pace Maestro.

    Very sad news indeed. Yes, 91 is an incredible age to reach, but Morricone was so active up untill the last, I thought he would last forever. But goes to show how vulnerable you are to injuries when you're up there. Morricone was always on/off to me. Some things I can't stand, other things I absolutely love. I am particularly a fan of his melancholic, gorgeous, broad melodies. Currently writing an obituary in Norwegian, will need to gather my thoughts a bit.

    Oh no! What a talent! I was amazed that he seemed to be working and touring up until the very last. I saw him in concert in January 2019. What a memory! RIP.

  33. Because the description says it's ... sold out. Weird. Maybe limited really means limited in this case. Hope not. https://store.deutschegrammophon.com/p51-i0028948390458/john-williams-wiener-philharmoniker-anne-sophie-mutter/john-williams-live-in-vienna-ltd-deluxe-edition-cd-bluray-/index.html You can still order it from Amazon Germany. I ordered my copy two months ago. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B087SCCYF1/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1

  34. This is awful. Having said that, he had an amazingly long life and career that most composers can only dream of. And most striking musical imagination. You cannot say he didn't achieve anything there there is to be achieved in this field. Rest in piece. Karol

  35. I believe that Williams' scores would have dedicated a large portion of their runtime to new themes. Probably with subtle melodic ties to the primary thematic material (Hedwig's Theme, Family Theme, HWW, Voldenort). Though it's possible his tight 2005 schedule would have prompted him to go the adaptation route as with CoS.

  36. Elfman's Justice League was one of the most disappointing albums I've ever heard. Made a sound I would not want to hear twice in my life.

  37. Well, he should have hired someone entirely different for this, to rewrite it, because Junkie sucks. Addendum: no, I haven't heard the score yet, and no, I don't give a crap.

  38. A lot is cribbed from Beetlejuice and Scrooged. Stylistically, it doesn't feel like a natural extension of the first film. Elfman's first Batman score is a masterpiece. Great score, energized musicians, terrific conducting, great album remix by Shawn Murphy.

  40. Nolan's movies were pretentious and nihilistic, but he still knew in the end that Batman was the good guy and the Joker was the bad guy, regardless of how Millennial audiences interpreted it. The Tod Philips Universe presents Joker as a tragic man that needs attention and is "forced" to murder people, whereas Bruce Wayne is a spoiled brat who deserves what's coming to him. It's a Love Letter to these idiot Gen Z kids living with their parents that can't adapt to society and demand it adapt to them.

    Ethereal cues from JW

    Great thread idea @karelm -- you're absolutely right that this is so difficult to put into words, but it's really something I've noticed and loved about JW's music for the least few years. These sorts of mystical, ethereal moments never fail to move me emotionally, even more so than his grand orchestral moments. Somehow this type of music seems to me to underscore the fragility, indeed the ephemeral nature, of time, and of moments in our lives (or those of the characters on screen). Although I think Williams is best at this, Horner is also brilliant at it (actually, perhaps even equal to JW), as @SteveMc notes above. This gorgeous cue from The New World is a great example (I wish we could hear it without the bird-chirping, although I suppose that adds to the effect):

  42. Same, although AI fits the bill very well, too. It's no accident or coincidence that he holds those as some of his favorite work. Seeing your further comments, I think I'm understanding better and better what you mean, and I agree that Williams is a master of this. It's so intimate and private, and it feels like Williams was digging from a very deep lived experience to write these moments, for more or less mainstream entertainment no less. It's one of the major reasons why it's unfortunate that so many modern film composers look to past film scores for their major fuel, so to speak: amongst other things, they deny themselves their own innate humanity to draw from and truly create a lasting and powerful impact of their own.

  44. Don't think I could take that guy's voice for an hour-and-a-half, but I have read something this morning that indicated a major theme of Picard is Jean-Luc being told/learning to *check his privilege*. Never mind him busting his balls at Starfleet Academy and working hard to rise through the ranks ... he's white, so it must be privilege that got him where he is. Jesus fucking Christ. Not sorry that I'm missing this at all.
