Remembering Marcello Giombi

Marcello Giombini was born in Rome, Italy on July 28, 1928. His father was a music professor who specialized in the oboe and who played in several orchestras.
He was a composer of secular music and film music as well as being interested in electronic music.
Giombini established himself especially in the 1960 and 1970s sixties as a satisfactory and creative maker in the renewal of the religious music and also in the liturgical area. Marcello was also composer of many soundtracks for movies, especially of the genre of Spaghetti westerns for which he composed 15 scores from “The Relentless Four” in 1965 to “Dallas” in 1975. He’s probably best remembered for his scores to “Sabata” (1969) and “Return of Sabata” (1971). Later he became a pioneer of electronic music in Italy.
Marcello’s son, Pierluigi Giombini [1956- ], is known as one of the most famous composer of "Italo Disco" in the 1980s.
Giombini died December 12, 2003 in Assissi, Italy.
Today we remember one of the Euro-westerns greatest composers on what would have been his 85th birthday.
