Today, I arrived home to the sad news that Ennio Morricone, the world’s greatest composer, had passed away at the age of 91. Morricone was responsible for so many classic film scores that it’s hard to know where to begin. I imagine I’ll be sharing a lot of his music over the next couple of days. Some of it will be familiar and hopefully, some of it will inspire our readers to seek out some of his lesser known scores.
For now, I’d like to share one of my favorite Morricone compositions. This is Deborah’s Theme from Sergio Leone’s 1984 gangster epic, Once Upon A Time In America.
