Ennio Morricone in Conversation with Quentin Tarantino, March 18, 8 pm

In an extremely rare Los Angeles appearance, legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone will discuss his far-ranging career in a dialogue with writer/director Quentin Tarantino. With over 500 credits and various accolades including an Honorary Award from the Academy, the prolific and versatile Morricone has written music for films ranging from Sergio Leone classics such as “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” and “Once upon a Time in the West,” revolutionary auteur Pier Paolo Pasolini's “Teorema” and “The Decameron,” and cult classics from Mario Bava (“Danger: Diabolik”) and Elio Petri (“Investigation of a Citizen above Suspicion”), not to mention countless Spaghetti Westerns and recent collaborations with Brian De Palma, Warren Beatty and Giuseppe Tornatore. Two-time Academy Award winner Tarantino has directed films that have redefined the American cinematic landscape, beginning with the one-two punch of “Reservoir Dogs” and the Palme d’Or winning “Pulp Fiction.” Beginning with 2003’s “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” and continuing with subsequent films “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained,” Tarantino has masterfully employed the music of Morricone, introducing the maestro’s epic scores to new audiences. On Thursday, March 20, Morricone will mark his first Los Angeles performance when he conducts a 200-member orchestra and choir performing a selection of his works at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, followed on Sunday, March 23, by a concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Yes Dave, and from this Budapest video that I've posted earlier in the thread where he conducted sitting in a high chair, you can see that everything went normal as usual:

Will do. Four more weeks until your concert, so let's hope he completely recuperates.  Afro

This might explain the injury - from the FSM Board:

"Ennio Morricone said in a recent interview to a Swiss newspaper (to promote his concert he held in Zurich - where he apparently fell from the podium at the end of the event) that he'd love to score more science fiction movies..."

The next concert after Zurich was Budapest where he was seated, ditto for Vienna...

Maestro Morricone regrets that he will be unable to perform at the Zorlu Center on Feb 22 as he has sustained a back injury and has had to cancel the performance."

Post from the EM forum:

"About yesterday's concert in Budapest: it was wonderful, apart from some minor faults of the sound engineer (During the performance of "On Eart As It Is In Heaven", the choir absolutely overpowered the orchestra, it was impossible to hear what the orchestra played and even the choir sounded a bit like "mixed together". During some other performances, some instruments were also way too loud compared to others.)

The program was the same as in the previous concerts in this tour. The encores were: Chi Mai, The Ecstasy of Gold and On Earth As It Is In Heaven. There was no intermission, the Maestro conducted the two hour concert without a break.

As for the Maestro: he seemed very fragile now. At the beginning of the concert they announced that Morricone had an aching leg so he would conduct the orchestra not as he used to do, standing in front them, but sitting in front of them on a high chair and he would like to apologize for this. (No wonder: this week he has had four concerts! It's crazy, in his age, I think. He should have some rest, more free days between the concerts.) At the end of the concert he needed some assistance to stand up from the chair. I do hope he manages to get better and conduct all the planned concerts.

I am very grateful that I could see the Maestro again and I wish him good health during this long concert series."
