Program Notes

The Ecstasy of Gold is the famous theme from the movie The Good, The Bad and The Ugly that leads up to and is heard during the movie’s climax, the showdown! The complete soundtrack to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was released in 1966 and sold millions of copies. Since 1983, heavy-metal band Metallica have been opening concerts with Morricone’s dramatic and exciting song, The Ecstasy of Gold. Lorenzo Bocci has created an equally exciting arrangement for concert band.
