My number one Ennio - La Leggenda del Pianista Sull'Oceano (The Legend of 1900, in its shorter UK/US cut). What a brilliant score, full of emotion and interesting ideas.

That's a good one, one of the few I own on CD, actually. Dig the Waters song too, although he's gone completely bonkers in recent years.

But my alltime favourite Morricone score is FATELESS, I think.

I only own this, Mission to Mars (my second fave Ennio), Malena, an almost half hour disc of (ahem) What Dreams May Come (I LOVE the film and LOVE Michael Kamen's score) and a solo piano CD, La Leggenda della Pianista (Gilda Butta, Ennio's pianist). I also have an LP in my loft (attic) of one of the Eastwood westerns, can't recall which.

I always find this a very difficult thing to do, to pick an absolute favourite of anything. I can never decide on things like a favourite song from your favourite band or singer, a favourite film, a favourite musical or a favourite score. It can change fairly often over time.

As for Morricone, it could be The Red Tent. Or it could be Cinema Paradiso, or Malena, or OUATITW, or The Mission, or Days Of Heaven. There's probably a Morricone score out there that I've never even heard could be a potential favourite! So probably one of those mentionedbig grin

Novecento (1976).

Come on, Thomas, go with the "heat of the moment" (great Asia song, btw)! I can relate to these things changing somewhat, but what's your favourite RIGHT NOW, on May 24th, 2024, at 16:45?

I don't know what's trickier, asking for the top 5 70s Goldsmith scores or the number one favorite score by Ennio Morricone. If he was anything, he was prolific.

There are a great number of Morricone scores I love that that would be among my "all time favorite film scores", but if I have to pick one right now (just as Thor suggested... go with the heat of the moment):

Moses the Lawgiver (1974)
Deeply contemplative score, introspective, but also tense and atonal...

So far I've only heard two of his scores (I will seek out more of his titles eventually). So my favorite is the first one I heard, FATELESS. Magical!

Good choice, but including the final track?

A man of excellent taste! I needed 115 albums (so far) to come that conclusion. You needed two. smile

Novecento.

It's a bit awkward, as Ennio scored the unrelated Novecento and the theatrical monologue by Allessandro Baricco that The Legend of 1900 (the Italian title La Leggenda del Pianista Sull'Oceano translates as 'The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean') was based on, was also titled Novecento (I have an English version of the script book and they use the title Novecento also)!

I edited my post to Novecento (1976) to make it more clear.

I respect Ennio Morricone and know he is a very talented composer although he is maybe my least favourite film music composer. Saying that I do enjoy some of his soundtracks and my favourite is probably The Mission from 1986.
