The sad news has come in recent days that has shaken both the film industry and cinema fans: the late Oscar-, Grammy- and Golden Globe-winning Italian composer Ennio Morricone, the best-known and most influential figure in the history of film music.

In honor of Ennio Morricone, the Former Once Upon a Time in the Wild Westwill be shown at the Polus Cinema, featuring “Good, The Bad and The Ugly” for two weeks from July 16. The western classics, with a digitally restored image and remixed sound, will be subtitled screenbed @ Corvin Cinema.

During Morricone’s career, he composed music for more than half a thousand films, including countless cult works. The best known of these are his music for western films, including For a Handful of Dollars (1964), A Few Dollars for More (1965), The Evergreen, The Bad and the Ugly (1966), The Ever-Green Melodies of the Once Upon a Wild West (1968). Sergio Leone‘s western classics with the unforgettable soundtrack of Morricone and the brilliant playing of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, the beautifully photographed extra-widescreen visuals and the long atmosphere for generations of movie fans, it embodies the uppercase cinema experience.

“Its the only scene I can’t imagine ever being able to soar beyond,” Quentin Tarantino said of the finale of Good, Bad and Ugly. In addition to the main drive before the master of film music, it is no secret that today’s film fans can see the evergreen works of cinema history where their creators originally intended them: on the cinema screen.

In the “Classic” film club of the Polus Cinema, more films will be returning to the big screen for one night in the next few days, including The Thing (1982) from John Carpenter, whose creepy music is also named Morricone. James Cameron’s 1991 classic, Terminator 2 – Day of Judgment, The Apocalypse Now – The Final Cut (1979) and The Godfather 2 (1974) by Francis Ford Coppola, and Robert Zemeckis ’cult trilogy, Back to the Future 2. ( 1989) and 3 (1990).

There are roughly 4 parts of the films … Acting … Writing … Music … Cinematography. The movies tick all the 4 boxes.

Herald News: Interested going to il Maestro Ennio Morricone concert @ Budapest – 2019.

A gift from film composer Ennio Morricone …

within less than 2 month, the Italian legend, il Maestro Morricone, on  Wednesday, January, 23. 2019., will host a jubilee exclusive birthday concert at the Papp László Sport Arena, where the best-known melodies will be heard. The maestro will be accompanied by a full Symphony Orchester, along with about 250 musicians  participating at the monster production.

The Hungarian musicians sent photographs to the 90th birthday in November to Ennio Morricone wishing good health and success to the composer. Morricone received the greetings in his Roman home and thanked through his management. The musical magician deeply was touched by the gesture of the Hungarian musicians.

There is hardly to name another living true virtuoso as Ennio Morricone …  a film composer, a legend whose work has reached far-far-away beyond borders.  Morricone’s legendary sounbdtracks such as: “Once Upon a Time in The West” (American-Italian-Spanish Western – by Sergio Leone) or the “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” …   A true epic Spaghetti Western film with Italian music composer Director: Sergio Leone …  by far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever mounted together with Morricone’s music.The maestro’s soundtracks are well recognised and cannot be divided from the screenplays. The maestro’s soundtracks will not be different here in Budapest at the concert.  The audience may close their eyes and layback as hearing the melodies which will fill the air and soul at the one time concert in Budapest.
