Summary "Leinberger begins his study with Morricone's musical background and experience in the Italian music business, his earliest Italian film scores, and his dealings with Hollywood. The second chapter explores the many techniques that distinguish Morricone's music from that of other film composers. Subsequent chapters examine the historical and cultural context of the film and the attempt to place the style of Morricone's score for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in relation to his scores for other well-known Westerns. The final chapter analyzes compositional techniques, which are presented in chronological order from the film's opening credits to its climactic ending."--BOOK JACKET.
