James Horner

Famed for his lush, sweeping scores for films including Braveheart, Apollo 13, and Titanic, the prolific composer James Horner was born in Los Angeles on August 14, 1953. Educated at London's Royal College of Music as well as local universities USC and UCLA, he landed his first motion picture assignments during the 1970s, scoring B-movies like The Lady in Red, Humanoids of the Deep, and Battle Beyond the Stars for producer Roger Corman's New World organization. By 1982, Horner had moved on to major studio fare including 48 Hrs. and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and four years later he notched his first Academy Award nominations for his score to the science fiction classic Aliens as well as for the song "Somewhere out There", from the animated picture An American Tail. In 1989, Horner earned a second Oscar nomination for his score to Field of Dreams, that same year winning a Grammy for his work on the Civil War drama Glory; in 1995 he was honored with two more Academy Award noms, for Braveheart and Apollo 13. Horner finally struck Oscar gold in 1997, taking home statuettes for his score to the blockbuster Titanic as well as the film's original song "My Heart Will Go On", a hit for Celine Dion. After writing scores for movies like Commando and New World, Film Music Masterworks: Original Soundtracks, which contained pieces from some of Horner's best-known work (Apollo 13, Braveheart, Willow, and of course, Titanic, among others), was issued in 2006. Horner's output in the 2000s was not nearly so prolific as in the 1990s, but he continued to produce sterling work, earning three further Oscar nominations for A Beautiful Mind (2001), House of Sand and Fog (2003), and Avatar (2009), the colossal success of which almost rivaled that of Titanic. He also wrote the theme to the CBS Evening News program, heard daily by millions of Americans. He continued to be an in-demand presence in film well into the 21st century, scoring big-budget box office smashes like The Amazing Spider-Man and Ender's Game. 2012 saw the release of a lavish, four-disc, 25th anniversary edition of his most popular work, Titanic -- the most successful orchestral score album in history. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Horner is an absolutely brilliant composer. Braveheart's one of my favorite scores of all time. This is a good bio of him, but he didn't actually write Ender's Game; Steve Jablonsky did.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it works
James Horner is so talented. Sometimes I wish everybody can do great stuff like this but if it was like that we would not be able to appreciate music as much as we do and we wouldn't be able to pick out the great composers. James Horner keep astonishing us and keep making us feel.

Imagine any movie without its music. Music is the amazing glue that holds the scenes together, the entity that says what words cannot alone say, the element that expresses our emotions best of all. James Horner is wonderful at all this.
Love this guy!!!! Thank you for making such inspirationa l music!!!
He is amazing . . . moving music
meh
Legends of the Fall is a favorite as well. Very emotional music that stays with you long after the movie.
Legends of the Fall is my favorite of his lesser known works. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a fan of James Horner.
ian9766
such a talented composer
TWOK- Battle in the Mutara Nebula is amazing!
alicekingdom
amazing music!
a very talented man!!!!
The music in Braveheart brought the feeling of the scenes and action to the surface and tears to my eyes. Particularly the part where he realizes he is betrayed by William the Bruce. His music gives strength to the emotions.
I agree cgibson. That sweeping score stops me in my tracks. I might go so far as to say that the music is a character on it's own in the film.
You know the score composer is good when listening to the music fills you with the emotions you felt during the movie. I can't help but cry when I hear the Braveheart score. Favorite movie and score by miles.

Let's keep in mind as well that he is a P 51 Pilot

James Horner and Hans Zimmer are my favorite composers ever... I'm listening to his Titanic Film Score and it sounds so beautiful. I just wonder how long did it take for him to write a freaking 14 minute piece... ugh it sounds so lovely and makes my mood go crazy. i love it so much.
House Of Sand And Fog is a beautiful score

And i do not Trek!

True art is like magic!
Whenever I watch a movie, I always listen to the composer's work, and sometimes I can hear Titanic in the Mask of Zorro, or another musical phrase in Braveheart, then I know that it is James Horner, and I am usually right. However, it isn't only James Horner that does it, Hans Zimmer has his own style as well that can be picked out of movies.
Titanic is one of my favorite from james horner

James designs his music for each character, setting and event , with each in multiple layers; this surely makes beautiful music : )
