An Oscar that was given to him years to late. This man should have at least 10 in my humble opinion.

He always looks so intense in his pictures. I love his glasses though. Afro

Yeah, he does have an intense look about him. You rarely see him smile. It seems like he's always hard at work in his mind.

Absolutely.
Only time I met him personally was before a concert (not directed by him) of his terrible "serious" music in Rome (I abandoned the music hall after the first half). I spoke with him about the way he spent his nights and had a very peculiar answer: he did jogging in his enormous apartment about 3-4 o'clock a.m. This was in the late '80's, I don't know if he still does it. Anyway while talking to him about this innocuos matter he emanated a more relaxed impression about him, though I think he was anxious about the concert as he at the time used to consider his serious music as his only real musical output (I think he has a more fair view of his cinema and pop work now, though).

titoli, i'm not familiar with his "serious" music.  How would you describe it?  You found it too abstract or avant garde?

I heard one concert on tv of this stuff and that half concert live around the same time. It is of the experimantal kind, though he didn't make use of electronic instruments (he dabbled in electronics in the '60's and, thank god, brought the experience in his non-serious music). I rememeber a piece called "Pezzi for piano e forte" where he experimented with the piano's dynamic: but melody was absent or imperceptible, more like a series of chords (usually with many dissonanze) and pauses (I saw this twenty years ago so I can't describe it better). I remember the first piece at the live concert   was for two (or four?) double basses along the same lines.

I see.  Thank you.  Sounds quite experimental.  There wouldn't be any similarities or traces of the things that one might love in his orchestrations for cinema.

Absolutely. That was what kept me amazed: all his qualities as a tonal composer were completely absent or, if not, I didn't perceive them.

Great stuff titoli! Thanks for sharing your experiences with Ennio. You're so incredibly lucky to have not only met him, but spoken to him as well! That's amazing.
