A lot of people may not recognise this man:
But maybe you would have heard the music he composed for some of your favourite films - for one, my most treasured film in the whole wide world - Cinema Paradiso. Then the following in no particular order: The Mission, The Untouchables, Good The Bad And The Ugly, Baaria, Malena, A Fist Full Of Dollars.... The list just goes on and on.
