Subject: RE: Film (movie) music
Both Jimmy Page ('Led Zeppelin'), and George Martin('Beatles') had roots in movie scores. I, myself, think some scores are among some of the most beautiful, and/or stirring music of this past century! There are a list of GREAT composers, whose pieces rival any of the classics!
Some to note: (run a search on any one of these!)John Barry, Alfred Newman, James Horner, Miklos Rosza, Elmer Bernstein, Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, Klaus Badelt, Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, Maurice Jarre, Ernest Gold, Percy Faith, Dave Grusin, Henri Mancini, Jerry Goldsmith, Lalo Schifrin, Franz Waxman, Dimitri Tiomkin. Alan Menken, Alex North, Andre Previn, Jack Nitzsche, Mark Isham, Who was on a billing with me once,.....and more.....OH! and, of course, Me!
Wonderful music!
