BRUNO NICOLAI


Bruno Nicolai (Rome, May 20, 1926 - Rome, August 16, 1991) was an Italian film music composer, orchestra director, and musical editor most active in the 1960s through the 1980s. While studying piano and composition at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome, he befriended Ennio Morricone and formed a long working relationship, with Nicolai eventually conducting for and co-scoring films with Morricone.
