Scarecrow Film Score Guides #3: Ennio Morricone's the Good, the Bad and the Ugly: A Film Score Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This guide demonstrates Morricone's unique and enduring contributions to the art of film music through a discussion of his compositional and orchestrational processes, many of which are evident in his music for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in a way that can be easily understood by both musicians and nonmusicians. Though the guide illuminates theoretical and structural aspects of Morricone's music, it also examines relevant non-musical issues which contribute to the audience's total experience of the film.

Book News Annotation:

The famous score with its tootling theme song that may be Morricone's best-known work is the subject of a close reading by Leinberger, a music theorist at the U. of Texas at El Paso. Morricone is a five- time Academy Award nominee who's scored films in many genres, but it's his work for westerns that has stuck in most filmgoers' minds. Leinberger traces the composer's musical background and experience in Italy and in Hollywood; explores the techniques that distinguish his music; and examines the cultural and historical contexts of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" and its score. A final chapter analyzes the score's compositional techniques from the opening credits to the climactic ending. Includes a selected filmography of Morricone's work.
