The third volume of 《Ennio Morricone Fans Handbook》was published

After the publication of Volume 2 of the 《Ennio Morricone Fans Handbook》in 2022, and after more than a year of continuous efforts, as the final work of the whole volume of the 《HANDBOOK》, Volume 3 was finally published on January 8, 2023. It has realized a wish of the author for many years: to edit a book with both an introductory nature and a panoramic perspective for Chinese and global fans. The systematic study of books will fill a gap in the existing works of About Ennio Morricone in the world. When this wish was realized at the end of the year when I was 86, it is self-evident that I was gratified
In an article summarizing the experience of the 20th anniversary of the website (see here), the author deeply felt that Ennio Morricone was indeed a great maestro. His greatness can be summed up in three points: amazing diligence and great achievements of labor; Great musical talent; Great moral character, presiding over justice, and supporting weak social activists. If you carefully read the three volumes of 《HANDBOOK》, you will surely find sufficient reasons for these conclusions, and you will have a more sense of respect for such a great person. From the following list, you can learn some things:

This volume contains 224 FU works during the 71 years from 1949 to 2020. The early works recorded the hard process of Morricone's development from a trumpet player (FU4901) to a musical arranger (FU5301Q) for drama, broadcasting and film as an apprentice, and then to write music for drama as a composer (FU5802), until he became a film musician. What's more surprising is that his last work as an original musician in his life was also a modern drama 《There are days that never happen》 in 2020 (see FU2002). This not only reminds us of the saying that the Maestro often mentioned: "I am a music composer first, and then, just then, a film music composer."

In this volume 3 book, there are also a large number of works recording the maestro's social activities, such as FU7401 《Vi scrivo da un care in Grecia / I Write in Greek Prison》, FU8901 《MUTAC / Farmers' Traditional Art Museum》, FU9301 《Eva Fischer, Pittore / Painter Eva Fischer》, FU9501 《Music per la resistenza / Resistance Music》, FU0101 《Ritratti italiani n. 7: Gillo Pontecorvo / Italian Portrait No. 7: Gilo Pontecorvo》...... etc. We can see that from workers to farmers, from poets to writers, from prisoners to resistance fighters, from environmental protection to energy, from leftists to religious ceremonies. The character and activities of this maestro can be seen almost everywhere. In this sense, he is not just a musician

In this book, there is also a special column dedicated to 56 known TV advertisements with music by the maestro. Most of these advertisements are directed by many famous directors. For example, Sergio Leone, Giuseppe Tornatore, these advertisements are limited to one or two minutes or even dozens of seconds, but under the careful design of these directors and the wonderful music of Morricone, almost every piece has become one pearl gem with eternal brilliance, which is amazing and memorable

This volume was officially published on January 8, 2003. In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our website and widely disseminate the excellent works of Morricone, we have decided to provide this volume 3 to all fans in an open and free manner in 2023. For details of the full volume of the《HANDBOOK》, please see here

I sincerely wish the master's outstanding music will be immortal!
