Ennio Morricone and music for weddings: a special bond that will live forever

Ennio Morricone: we remember the great Italian master

Ennio Morricone passed away in Rome on the morning of July 6, at the age of 91. Many words have already been spent to remember this great ambassador of Italian music in the world, and we make our own way, placing the accent on the masterpieces that have forever tied him to the most important day of his fans’ lives: the wedding day. But not before pointing out the prizes won in the course of its existence: the “Leone d’oro” for Lifetime Achievement, four Golden Globes, three Grammy Awards, ten David di Donatello, eleven Nastro d’argento and, in 2016, his star was imprinted on the Walk of Fame.

Today, we want to remember and celebrate the Maestro, more than anything else for his instrumental pieces that have characterized many soundtracks, which we at ProfessionalWeddingDJ love to propose when we take care of the realization of the soundtrack and the direction of civil ceremonies. But first, a brief mention should be made of his pop hits, to which he made his contribution as arranger (with Edoardo Vianello he collaborated for the 60’s hit “Abbronzatissima”, and in his palmares there is also “Se telefonando”, sung by Mina and “Libera l’amore” by Zucchero. As far as his soundtracks are concerned, the collaborations with Sergio Leone and Giuseppe Tornatore were truly “magical” and, together with other soundtracks, we want to remember some pearls below, a great classic in civil ceremonies made by us at professionalWeddingDJ:

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (Love Theme)  –   Ennio Morricone

 Amapola, Ennio Morricone, in a special jazz version

Gabriel’s Oboe – Ennio Morricone taken from “The mission” (1986)

Finally, to remember the maestro, we report his declaration, dated 1996, in which he declares his total devotion to music:

«I have to try to create a soundtrack that appeals to both the director and the public, but above all I must like it too, because otherwise I’m not happy. I must be happy before the director. I can’t betray my music. “
