Ennio Morricone -Themes: Passion [2LP] LIMITED PINK & PURPLE MARBLED COLORED 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, Theme 5 of 5, 4-page insert, deluxe gatefold, numbered to 3000
Passion is the fifth and final part of a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone’s greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. The Maestro. This collection was announced before Ennio Morricone passed away on July 6, 2020. We’ll continue to release the series to honour this great composer.
Ennio Morricone composed soundtracks for well over 400 films during his stunning career. No other composer can come close to that total. He did so with a genius and a passion that is unrivalled in film composition; yet looking back over his catalogue, certainly in his more familiar works, it is hard to find one single film that could be categorised as a conventional love story.
However, passion is woven through so much of The Maestro’s creations. Not merely by expressing the simple romance of a love story, but evoking passion in a grander sense, that passion that celebrates life, that pushes people to the limit of their endurance or inspires them to the peak of their capabilities. This is passion Italian style, not just reserved for love and affection. Morricone reminds us that everything in Italian life is approached with gusto, energy and passion!
Starting 70 years ago as an arranger for the piece Mamma Bianca, Ennio Morricone is the emperor of scores and soundtracks. Morricone has always been a huge influence for the likes of Hans Zimmer, Danger Mouse, Muse, Metallica and many more musicians. He was one of the most successful composers of all-time, selling over 70 million records and winning dozens of awards.
Passion is available as a limited edition of 3000 individually numbered copies on “pink & purple marbled” vinyl. The package includes a 4-page insert with liner notes written by Claudio Fuiano. The gatefold sleeve contains a diamond glitter foil spot varnish on the outside and images of iconic movie posters on the inside.
