Happy 65th Birthday Guido De Angelis

Guido De Angelis was born on December 22, 1944 in Rocca di Papa near Rome, Italy Along with his younger brother Maurizio they began working at RCA in Rome as arrangers in 1963 after successfully publishing an LP. This led to a successful career in film composing of which they have scored more than a dozen Eurowesterns, from “Trinity is Still My Name” (1971), “Zorro” (1974), “Keoma” (1975) to “A Man Called Blade”. To avoid over saturating the market with their musical talents in the 1960s they marketed themselves under different names including Oliver Onions, Dilly Dilly, The Black Stones, Canary Jones, Donald & Olimpio and Juniper to name a few. Guido and Maurizio are both still active today and continue to work together as a team and also pursue individual efforts. Today we celebrate Guido DeAngelis' 65th birthday.

  1. A dupla Guido e Maurizio de Angelis tinham o seu estilo próprio para as trilhas sonoras dos Westerns Spaghettis. Sem dúvida nenhuma ajudaram a complementar "A obra" que ficariam eternizadas nas telas do cinema mundial.
    A música tema de "Keoma" retratando um clíma de sofrimento e no tema de "Trinity ainda é meu nome" muito descontraída assim como o personagem.
    Parabéns pelas belas composições que nos deixaram.
