Ennio Morricone signs to Decca Records in a major new record deal celebrating his professional career which spans 60 years and 600 compositions. His new album ‘Morricone 60’ will be released on 7th October, just ahead of his 88th birthday, and marks the start of a unique partnership between Decca and the Morricone family.
‘Morricone 60’ is the first album of Ennio Morricone’s greatest hits conducted, recorded and curated by Morricone himself – and aims to create a legacy for his fans to enjoy. It sees the celebrated Maestro performing some of his greatest film music from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly to his recent Academy Award-winning score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (released earlier this year on Decca). The album marks Ennio Morricone’s 60th anniversary as a composer and conductor and features brand new recordings with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, with whom he’s collaborated on major international movie scores.
