Thread Name: Film (movie) music
Subject: RE: Film (movie) music
Modern "classical" composers often go places I don't want to go, but I think that movie soundtracks are some of our best symphonic music nowadays. My favorites are Elmer Bernstein's To Kill a Mockingbird and Maurice Jarre's Lawrence of Arabia. I think I have to admit that I like anything that comes from John Williams, despite the fact that he must make a whole hell of a lot of money.
Yeah, I suppose it may sometimes pluck my heartstrings in a cheap, tawdry way - but I still love movie music.
