Ennio Morricone was an Italian composer, orchestrator, conductor and trumpeter who wrote music in a wide range of styles. With more than 400 scores for cinema and television, as well as more than 100 classical works, Morricone is widely considered one of the most prolific and greatest film composers of all time. He is famously known for composing The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). It is regarded as one of the most recognizable and influential soundtracks in history and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. He also won an Academy Award for his soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight back in 2016, after garnering five previous nominations and an Honorary Award in 2007 that recognized his lifetime achievements.
