    Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone

    SOme of it is absolutely stunning. Recordare, Ecstasy of Gold (one of the greatest renditions!), the Main Theme for Once Upon a Time in the West and Marco Polo are my favourites.

    Does anyone know how that cd was called of a concert recording in Rome? I once rented it in the library, but can't find the name any more. I remember Erik loved it as well.


    One of my favourite albums, stunning from beginning to end.

    The Amazing Spider-Man Horner

    Brilliant. Initially I found the main theme a little corny, especially when performed solo on brass, but now I love pretty much the whole thing.

    NP: Battleship - Steve Jablonsky

    There are some really excellent musical pieces in here, as Steve Jablonsky demonstrate his talent for long form musical development. But half of the album has too much sound design that I can't grab onto. The movie is just as bad, the VFX work is awesome, but the story needed more work.


    Whah? wink
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Glad you liked it my friend, it's certainly one of the year's best scores!

    NP: Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone - John Williams

    I usually listen to Hook or Home Alone when I feel like this kind of JW music, so it's been a while since I played it last time.


    I don't have The Chamber of Secrets, because when I saw the movie (long time ago) I thought it wasn't so different from the first score. But is it worth even if I have the first album?

    Yes and no. It's not Williams' most inspired work, but the Fawkes theme is gorgeous!
    I am extremely serious.

    Hell yeah! It is Williams' second best Potter score. 4-5 brand new themes. Rocking action music which sounds like Williams back in his Temple of Doom days. A brand new finale written for Harry's Wondrous World (my favorite rendition.) It's an extraordinary score!

    Mary, Queen of Scots - John Barry

    Spectacularly gorgeous score - what a collection of themes. As I say so often in relation to this man's scores - there are more great themes in this than a lot of film composers manage in their whole careers.

    I just utterly adore the track 'Gabriel's oboe'. I remember the first time I heard it, and in the beginning there is the stunning cello, but I missed the oboe, then the second stanza the oboe joins in and it becomes a duet... I was in heaven...
    Absolutely stunning album.

    It's true. I really like Jablonsky's long cues where you hear the ideas behind it. Tracks like 1, 3, 4, and 5 works really well for me. That brass theme is excellent whenever it pops up in the album.

    The movie itself isn't great, but is pretty much worth watching for the amazing VFX. Every single shot involving water is at least 75% digital.

    NP: Tinker Bell - Joel Mcneely

    A gem. Gorgeous score with some beautiful sweeping themes. Old school symphonic film music with a celtic touch. My daughter loves it as well!

    I'll probably re-discover the two other Tinker Bell scores I have of McNeely's later in the day. He's done a lot of fine work for these direct to video movies!

  5. I think that he meant that a classical sounding film score wouldn't apply to modern tastes as witnessed by the heavy popularity of Hans Zimmer and RCP works.
