Nino Rota. His very-Italian-feeling scores in The Godfather, The Leopard, and Rocco and His Brothers are just awesome.

Bernard Hermann & Leone would have made an interesting duo

but its hard to imagine leone working with anyone other then IL Maestro himself  ^-^

  How about Elmer Bernstein?  Obviously very different tones with their music for movies so it should be an interesting collaboration to see how Leone's visuals and Bernstein's audio gel/don't gel.  :)

I agree, Nino Rota would have been great.

Of course. We're just playing. Firecracker would say Bruno Nicolai (but Nicolai wouldn't have existed without Morricone, even assuming he had a greater part in some of the compositions of the Maestro of what it is only natural to assume). So I say John Barry: a John Barry goaded into experimentalism by Leone, as Morricone was. But of course we would be watching, in all cases, another movie. The problem is (as everybody here knows) that Morricone invented another kind of movie soundtrack like Leone invented another kind of western. Nobody did that, before and after. And while I'm certain Morricone could have scored greatly for Fellini, I'm not sure Rota could have come up with something so disruptive for Leone. He would have made a great score but it remains to be proved that such a particular genre like western could have been in his line. The fact that he never scored one should mean something. And listening to some of his soundtracks (very little) I've never found something that could have done so well for the westerns. It is interesting to compare the main theme of The clan of Sicilians with that of Godfather: that does explain better than words the difference between the two, though listening to tghe Fellini scores for La dolce vita or 8 1\2 leaves still much room to ponder.

I received The Wind and the Lion Expanded Soundtrack for Christmas. Hearing it outside of the film for the first time, it's pretty damned awesome, I must say - definitely Goldsmith's best, and in the same league as some of Morricone's stuff.

Definitely Goldsmith. He even makes bad movies sound good.
