There are few Italian film composers who can boast the prolificacy of Peiro Piccioni. Since the early '50s Piccioni has been a truly innovative composer of music for film and has been justly compared to the likes of Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicola. In the 1950s he composed under the Americanized last name of Piero Morgan, and with his dramatic score to La Tempesta in 1958, he started to work regularly in Hollywood. With great versatility, Piccioni incorporates jazz, lounge, easy listening, and post-romantic period orchestral elements into his wide variety of work which has been the sonic backdrop for everything from B horror films to lush, romantic epics. ~ Nate CavalieriPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
