Maestro Ennio Morricone has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television as well as over 100 absolute music works.

Since the start of the tour in 2016, the Maestro has conducted over 50 concerts in more than 35 European cities, with another 11 concerts scheduled. More than 650.000 spectators have seen this unique production since it first show.
In the summer of 2016, Morricone composed and recorded the score for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film The Hateful Eight, for which he received universal praise, including Academy Award for Best Original Score, his sixth BAFTA Award for Best Film Music, and his third Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score.
Discussing his current tour, Morricone said: “I feel privileged and excited to celebrate my 90th birthday in such a great state of health. It is a blessing to still be conducting my concerts in all the beautiful European cities and I am grateful for the generosity that my audiences continue to show”.
When asked how the Maestro sees the future ahead, he simply responds: “See you all again in ten years for the next big celebration!”
