A 91 anni è morto il maestro Ennio Morricone. Si è spento in una clinica romana dove era stato ricoverato per le conseguenze di una caduta (rottura del femore). I funerali si terranno in forma privata come si legge in una nota del legale Giorgio Assumma. “Morricone si è spento all’alba del 6 luglio in Roma con il conforto della fede. Il maestro ha conservato sino all’ultimo piena lucidità e grande dignità, ha salutato l’amata moglie Maria che lo ha accompagnato con dedizione in ogni istante della sua vita umana e professionale e gli è stato accanto fino all’estremo respiro ha ringraziato i figli e i nipoti per l’amore e la cura che gli hanno donato, ha dedicato un commosso ricordo al suo pubblico dal cui affettuoso sostegno ha sempre tratto la forza della propria creatività”.
We are sad to hear of the loss of Ennio Morricone, Oscar-winning composer and musical maestro behind the "Hateful Eight" soundtrack among so many timeless and revolutionary themes, compositions and soundtracks. Without him, film simply would not be the same… Rest well, Ennio. pic.twitter.com/wpvxB8hznu

I remember well being blown away by Ennio Morricone’s music on so many films. We would then spend hours trying to get that guitar sound – on Elegia & Sunrise specifically – and of course, he was the inspiration for the Blue Monday bassline. Thank you Ennio & rest in peace.

few have as much impact on the entire world of music than Ennio Morricone …
this is my personal favorite from a (for some reason) lesser known film about a piano player who lives on a ship for his whole life.https://t.co/poWzeANLGI

Ennio Morricone, the Oscar winner whose haunting, inventive scores expertly accentuated the simmering, dialogue-free tension of the spaghetti Westerns directed by Sergio Leone, has died. He was 91 https://t.co/zYpigTiMuT

Farewell to the extraordinary composer Ennio Morricone (1928-2020), who wrote the soundtracks to so much of our lives on the screen. He once apologised he couldn't come to a concert of mine in Rome, but his son attended instead. What a gent and inspiration! pic.twitter.com/T6dBirejS9

Ennio Morricone's music has been one of the greatest loves of my life and biggest influences as an artist. He was the maestro. I was lucky enough to see him in concert and also to form a band of players to perform Morricone music live with David Scott. ❤️https://t.co/CVC2XfLUDR

RIP And now Ennio Morricone. One of the greatest composers of all time. You can hear our tributes to him in Africa Dawn on the Lilyhammer Score, and the new arrangement of Standing In The Line of Fire on Soulfire & Soulfire Live. Like Nick, another tragic loss to our culture.

Ennio Morricone left us last night.
This one is difficult for me to stomach.
Ennio, You will never know how much your music has meant to me, but I will never forget. Thanks for making this fucked up world more bearable. I love you.

Sitting on the pavement having my coffee, I notice the building opposite is rather uselessly called Empire House. Since we’re going through a bit of a rethink right now, we could do better. What about Ennio House? After Morricone.💜 pic.twitter.com/O2N68YpEIO
