Ennio Morricone — Anthology: A Fistful of Film Music (1995)

morricone fistfulBy Scott Goldfine

Best known for the soundscapes he contributed to Clint Eastwood’s “spaghetti” westerns, Italy’s Ennio Morricone is well represented on the double-CD “Anthology, A Fistful of Film Music.” The set’s 45 selections showcase the composer’s eclectic use of galloping rhythms, twangy guitars, punchy trumpets and strident strings.

So saddle up, grab your six-shooter and listen into the sunset, partner.
