Ce Madonna ma? Asculta putin Henry Mancini:
- Buna ziua, eu sunt nenea care a compus muzica de la "Mission Impossible", "Pantera Roz" si "Strazile din San Francisco"
- Buna ziua, eu sunt unu' care face plicuri colorate intr-o hruba din Bucuresti... da, capitala Ungariei. LOL
Henry Mancini (April 16, 1924 – June 14, 1994) was an Academy Award winning American composer, conductor and arranger.
Mancini was born Enrico Nicola Mancini in the Little Italy neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the steel town of West Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. His parents emigrated from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Mancini's father, Quinto, was a steelworker, who made his only child begin flute lessons at the age of eight. When Mancini was 12 years old, he began piano lessons. Quinto and Henry played flute together in the Aliquippa Italian immigrant band, "Sons of Italy". After high school, Mancini attended the renowned Juilliard School of Music in New York. In 1943, after roughly one year at Juilliard, his studies were interrupted when he was drafted into the United States Army. In 1945, he participated in the liberation of a South German concentration camp.
