One of cinema’s greatest composers, the legendary Ennio Morricone, has today announced that he will return to the UK for one final time as part of his extended ‘60 YEARS OF MUSIC’ World Tour.
Maestro Morricone will conduct his film music live in the UK for the last ever time at The O2, London, on 26 November, 2018. The concert will be performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and the Crouch End Festival Chorus.
Over a career spanning six decades, Morricone has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television as well as over 100 absolute music works. Highlights include his scores for Once Upon a Time in the West, One Upon a Time in America, A Fistful of Dollars, The Untouchables, The Hateful Eight, Cinema Paradiso, The Mission, and of course, the iconic The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
On the final show in London, Morricone said:
“I have very fond memories of my tours to the UK. From my very first concert at the Barbican Centre to my shows at the beautiful Royal Albert Hall and recently the spectacular nights at the O2 Arena and the Blenheim Palace grounds. The English audience has always given me a very warm welcome and I felt strongly that I should play one last big concert in London before I retire at the end of this year.”
