Ennio Morricone: Master of the Soundtrack - Maurizio Baroni

The first major work dedicated entirely to the discography of the maestro Ennio Morricone.

Unique in its genre, Ennio Morricone: Master of the Soundtrack originates from the idea of the collector, author, and cinema expert Maurizio Baroni. Baroni draws on his own archive to give life to a rich selection highlighting over fifty years of a prestigious career, largely unseen before, which includes handwritten scores by the maestro himself, the original album and single cover sleeves from his soundtracks, and much more.

This book is a definite homage to this great Italian composer of film soundtracks, probably the most famous in the world. Texts included by: Edda Dell'Orso, Dario Argento, Bernardo Bertolucci, Liliana Cavani, Lisa Gastoni, Franco Nero, Quentin Tarantino, and many more.

"Ennio Morricone, the venerable one, the master of the mosaic - his eclectic powers exploding through cinematic consciousness as technicolor shrapnel for nearly 40 years. By alchemically combining the exotic and the experimental, Ennio Morricone's magical mutations have spear-headed the movement to define the role of film music in the modern age."
      Alan Bishop 4/99 (from 'Morricone 2000' album notes, on Dagored).
