Musical Monday - For a Few Dollars More by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra


Released in the United States just after A Fistful of Dollars as kind of a sequel to that movie, For a Few Dollars More also features a score composed by Ennio Morricone, and once again the Danish National Orchestra knocks the theme song out of the park with this live rendition of the piece.

Morricone seems to have written the score for this movie in much the same way as its predecessor, with the added twist that many of the motifs contained within the music were intended to sound like the chimes of a music box-like pocket watch that features heavily in the plot of the film. Because of this, the music gives the movie a kind of fairy-tale feel, albeit a violent money-and-revenge-driven fairy-tale.
