Maestro Ennio Morricone

Farewell, Maestro.

These are incredibly sad times for me along with a great many of my colleagues. It is very difficult to find the right words to encapsulate the range of emotions swirling through my head right now.

Memories of concert halls, stages, studios, that endless flow of music, ninety colleagues in front of me, and the same number of singers behind me. And above this legion, with his clear vision and determination, Ennio Morricone, creating miracles.

We were there, basking in the glory of his presence, fearing any dissatisfaction on his part and humbly accepting his thanks after each and every concert.

At this time we think of his whole family. And most certainly, we will not forget.
