Ennio Morricone - Ennio Morricone: 'Quentin Tarantino Remarks Were Taken Out Of Context'

Composer Ennio Morricone has spoken out to clarify quotes attributed to him about collaborating with director Quentin Tarantino, insisting he has nothing but admiration for the filmmaker.

Just last week (ends15Mar13), the Italian maestro allegedly told a group of students at Rome's LUISS University that he did not care to work with Tarantino again, claiming he was unhappy with the use of his song Ancora Qui in Django Unchained and disliked the bloody scenes in the film.

But Morricone now insists his remarks, during a private lecture, were taken out of context.

A statement from the composer, obtained by Ew.com, reads: "What I read about my statements on Quentin Tarantino is a partial writing of my thoughts which has deprived the true meaning of what I said, isolating a part from the rest. In this way my statement sounds shocking, penalizing me and bothering me a lot.

"I have a great respect for Tarantino, as I have stated several times, I am glad he chooses my music, a sign of artistic brotherhood and I am happy to have met him in Rome recently. In my opinion, the fact that Tarantino chooses different pieces of music from a work in a film makes the pieces not to be always consistent with the entire work.

"The risk for me, when I compose, is not to be consistent with the film work and my desire is that the director accepts my consistency...

"Regarding Django, the thing is that I cannot see too much blood in a movie due to my character, is how I feel and impress me especially with a film that is made very well and where the blood is well shot (sic). But this has nothing to do with my respect for that Tarantino which remains great."
