He made The Godfather trilogy‘s legendary soundtrack reaching the height of creativity and beauty in The Godfather II. In my opinion, he made the most magnificent film music ever. It makes you love the characters and adore this family, though it is a gangster with a terrible history of crimes. It forces you to sympathize with the family and live an unexplained mix of feelings of nostalgia, love, heartbreak and grief. It is an unrepeatable blend of music writing and, in my opinion, the best soundtrack of all time to the best film of all time.

Bill Conti

He was brilliant in his renowned and most memorable music in the Rocky film series.
