Between September 8-13, films featuring soundtracks composed by the late Italian composer Ennio Morricone, considered one of the world’s best film composers, will be screened at the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre (SNFCC).
As a tribute to Morricone’s music, the film screenings, curated by film critic Ilias Frangoulis, will be accompanied by live music. This will be performed by the Athens State Orchestra in partnership with the European FilmPhilharmonic Institute and conducted by the notable Adrian Prabava.
Among the soundtracks performed will be those of the 60s western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly andOnce Upon a Time in the West, Giuseppe Tornatore’s Malena, and the Academy Award winning music for Quentin Tarantino’s film The Hateful Eight.
Morricone passed away in July at the age of 91, leaving behind him an incredible musical legacy for being able to adapt his talents to thrillers, westerns and love stories, never failing to evoke deep emotion in the listener.
