A concert tribute to Ennio Morricone
Orchestra conducted by Marcin Wolniewski - ICE Kraków Congress Centre
Program Info: On July 6, 2020, the extremely sad news spread around the world about the death of one of the greatest film music composers of our time - Ennio Morricone.
Born in Rome on November 10, 1928, in the 1950s, he began to compose music, first for RAI television productions. He was also a music composer for radio plays and a song arranger for singers such as Mario Lanza and Rita Pavone. In his spare time, he occasionally wrote music for theatre plays and even ballet. He was truly famous for his compositions for the films by Sergio Leone: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (1966) and "Once Upon a Time in the West" (1968). School friends from Rome created a brilliant artistic tandem.
In the following years, Morricone collaborated with the greatest directors of contemporary cinema, including Quentin Tarantino, Brian De Palma, Sergio Leone, Giuseppe Tornatore, and Adrian Lynn. The music of this composer with brilliant ideas has gained popularity over the years and many loyal fans.
Our project is a tribute to the work of Ennio Morricone, the author of music for over 500 films, winner of Oscars, Golden Globes and other significant awards. The orchestra, choir and soloists will perform under the baton of Marcin Wolniewski. Great music will be accompanied by images recalling the most famous film frames, turning an ordinary concert into an unforgettable multimedia spectacle! Since 2018, the project has been extremely successful internationally, gaining public recognition in the most famous concert halls in Europe, including Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Danish Theater in Copenhagen, Kulturpalast in Dresden.
