Ennio Morricone | Musica Assoluta
Seven years have passed since Maestro Ennio Morricone was first invited to Prague by the Prague Proms, and he’s developed an extraordinarily strong relationship with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra over that time. Aside from concerts at Prague’s O2 arena, he and a number of Czech musicians have travelled to most European countries, plus scooped up a number of awards including one Oscar.
On finishing his tour in November 2017, it wasn’t clear whether anyone wishing to see the Maestro perform would have to take a trip to his native country of Italy, however we’re pleased to announce that Ennio Morricone has accepted our invitation to Prague.
And what better venue than the Smetana Hall where he also appeared back in 2011. On this occasion he’ll be bringing the Musica Assoluta programme, which aside from film music, also includes some of his symphonic works which will certainly get the nod approval from fans, plus some of the most well-known encores. It’s also worth mentioning that Ennio Morricone will be celebrating his ninetieth birthday this year.
