Bio

Andrea Morricone is a composer of incredible versatility, whose body of work includes pieces for full orchestral ensembles and smaller chamber groups, as well as work destined primarily for the recording studio, film soundtracks and even musical theatre.
Morricone has composed over 25 soundtracks for Italian and international film projects, including Capturing the Friedmans by Andrew Jarecki, nominated for the 2004 Oscar for Best Documentary and winner at the 2003 Sundance Festival, Liberty Heights by Barry Levinson, Here on Earth, Due Amici, Raul, Funny Money and L’Inchiesta, as well as documentaries Brando, Slum Symphony and Huxley on Huxley.

His compositions have won a number of awards, including 2 Golden Globes, first for his soundtrack for the film Raul by Andrea Bolognini and in 2012 for his score for L'Industriale by Giuliano Montaldo. On March 20th, 2012 Andrea was awarded the Premio Ennio Morricone by the Bari International Film Festival for his soundtrack to the film L'Industriale. He was awarded a BAFTA for the ‘Tema d’Amore’ of Giuseppe Tornatore’s Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, a film that won the Oscar award for Best Foreign Film. The theme has become a repertoire favourite for a number of leading artists, performed by Itzhak Perlman

Andrea has collaborated with leading Italian, American and international orchestras such as the Santa Cecilia Symphony Orchestra, Rome Sinfonietta Orchestra A.M.IT Orchestra, International Orchestra of Italy, the ‘Guido Cantelli’ Orchestra of Milan, the Sofia Symphonic Orchestra, Budapest Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, Szeged Symphony Orchestra, Thorton Chamber Orchestra (with Yo-Yo Ma), The Czech National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) and the Simon Bolivar Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Morricone’s composition Romanza for String Trio and String Orchestra had its premiere at the celebration of 150 years of Italian Independence dedicated to the President of Italy, Giorgio Napolitano, who attended the concert on the 11th of March, 2010. Premieres in 2012-13 have included Nello Sguardo for viola and strings with the Orchestra Italia Sinfonica, his flute concerto with the Orchestra Filarmonica di Roma and a flute quintet at the Cremona festival.

Following in the musical footsteps of his father, Andrea graduated from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory of Rome in 1994 receiving a diploma in composition and in 1996 a diploma in orchestral conducting, under the tutelage of Bruno Aprea. Continuing his classical studies, in 1998 he perfected his composition skills at the Santa Cecilia National Academy under the tutelage of Franco Donatoni and Azio Corghi. Additional mentors include Ada Gentile, Irma Ravinale and Ivan Fedele. Andrea also has a degree in Literature, Philosophy and Musicology.

Currently, Andrea is working on two recordings: one a collection of trumpet and piano pieces and the other consisting of works for solo piano. He divides his time between Los Angeles and his native Rome, composing and conducting professionally.
