Ennio Morricone Deborahs Theme

Ennio Morricone, "Deborah's Theme"

Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci

Deborah's Theme is a musical jewel. Morricone is such a Master at building melodies that this work finds its way to the deepest parts of a man's soul. The melody is presented as a gentle hesitant set of short musical sentences that suddenly blossom in a lyrical melody of the greatest caliber.

Morricone is without a doubt one of the greatest composers ever and fortunately enough, he found a way in Hollywood where his music crowns such masterpieces as "Once upon a time in America", "The Mission" and "The Untouchables". I also offer an alternative fingering option that you can download from the Score Links below.

Staff and Video 1

Create the steady background onto which you will sketch the wonderful melody. The sequence of Bs will be the static point against which movement will be enhanced. The rhythm is quite flexible and musical expression has to be taken to its highest level. The B is actually holding the main tone: E. A wonderful musical technique that is like the signature of Ennio Morricone. It only augments the aural tension towards the resolution of the phrase. The sequence of double stops is also a part of Morricone's amazing style. Finger 4 is used as a barre to stop the B and the D# on strings 3 and 2 respectively. The finger is guided from the base. Look at the explanation in the complementary video to deepen in fingers positioning on the fingerboard.
