Musical Snapshot – James Horner – American Composer

James Horner, American composer, has led a uniquely prolific career scoring music for film for over 30 years.  Attached are varied selections of his work.

Each piece is a lushly interwoven study full of dense sentimentality, laced intoxicatingly with a powerful cinematic emphasis.  Each piece is, in itself, a singular work of audial art.  Horner’s melodies form a solid foundation for action, romance, and adventure elements, and overall, his work stands tall among the most emphatically rich in terms of film scores.  A personal favorite.
