Westerns are much more than a film genre. They form part of an imaginary shared by various generations around the world, featuring iconic settings and scenes in saloon bars, gun duels and battles between cowboys and Indians. The soundtracks of these films have also become twentieth-century classics. They include Ennio Morricone’s compositions, which set a style of their own in the spaghetti western. Elmer Bernstein’s score for the Magnificent Seven was one of the best-known of the 1960s. Not long after this, John Williams composed the soundtrack for The Cowboys, starring John Wayne, a classic of the 1970s. And John Barry’s score for Dances with Wolves is undoubtedly one of the most popular late twentieth-century soundtracks. This very special concert also includes the suite written by Roque Baños for 800 balas by Álex de la Iglesia, a comedy paying tribute to the western.
