HAUSER & Andrea Morricone Debut ‘Theme For Ennio’

A Tribute To Italian Composer Ennio Morricone


(OCTOBER 14, 2022, 5pm GMT) – International superstar cellist HAUSER has shared Theme for Ennio,” a touching tribute to his dear friend, Italian composer Ennio Morricone, performed with and composed by Ennio’s son, composer, conductor and pianist, Andrea Morricone – listen here. Andrea pays homage to his father, the late Maestro Ennio Morricone with this delicate and heartfelt performance, and today the pair release a beautiful music video that includes brief footage of Ennio Morricone – watch here.

Andrea Morricone has become well known for his work in both the conducting and composition fields, his most famous perhaps, is his collaboration with his father on the BAFTA Award winning  “The Love Theme” from Cinema Paradiso.

My father composed countless themes for the characters in films and I felt that the best way to honour him was to write a theme that captures his soul and personality. The result is the ‘Theme for Ennio,’ says Andrea. “I was following HAUSER for quite a while as he caught my attention not only because of his formidable performance on the cello but also because of his playful and modern approach to contemporary music. When I learned that he loved my father’s work and that he recorded a number of Ennio’s compositions in 2020, I was convinced that he was the right artist to record the Theme for Ennio. I am delighted and honoured that he has accepted my invitation to record this composition together, which holds huge emotional value for me and my family and I hope that audiences will enjoy the release on Sony Masterworks and during my concerts. I consider this the start of a new chapter, adding to the long history of my father’s legacy.”
Meanwhile HAUSER, fresh from the release of his Sony Masterworks Billboard chart-topping new album THE PLAYER, (listen here)  shares Andrea’s sentiment in appreciation for the late musical icon.
To me, it is a deep honour to collaborate with Andrea on this beautiful tribute song,” says HAUSER. “Ennio Morricone is, of course, a legend who has inspired so many with his music, myself included. I hope that ‘Theme for Ennio’ creates a moment of reflection and comfort to all of Ennio’s friends and fans.”

Revered globally for his spectacular and rule-breaking live performances, HAUSER has made a name for himself by honouring those who have come before him, and at the same time paving the way for the future. On his new album, he skillfully merges popular hits with timeless classics in a fresh way, engaging with cross-generational audiences by consistently blending genres.

HAUSER has performed in over 40 countries across the world and has performed alongside such wide-ranging acts as Andrea Bocelli, George Michael, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Elton John. Recently he performed at the Venice Film Festival’s closing ceremony. and at Classic FM’s Movie Music concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

Armed with the momentum from his last and final sold-out 2CELLOS tour, HAUSER recently announced his first-ever solo tour, the ultimate musical showcasing his signature performance style. The REBEL WITH A CELLO TOUR includes shows at London’s The O2 and Manchester’s O2 Apollo.  For tour dates and tickets, see HERE.
