BACK TO STAVANGER WITH CLARA SANABRAS: FROM TITANIC TO THE TEMPEST

Clara Sanabras has had an eventful year. Not only has she elicited emotions from thousands of film music fans through her work as a soloist on Titanic Live, and the Titanic Suite in Stavanger, Norway, she has also been busy on an ambitious project of her own, having written a folk opera based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest.   Courtesy of Stavanger Symphony Orchestra © Sony/ATV Music Publishing   Commisioned by The Chorus of Dissent, A Hum About Mine Ears combines newly composed music with Shakespeare's own texts as well as new lyrics written by Clara Sanabras based on the play. It was recorded

JAMES HORNER'S 62ND BIRTHDAY: ALL IS THERE

Photo credit: © Sylvia Wells   James Horner left this world, leaving us stunned and inconsolable. It was the day after Father's Day, the second day of summer. After this tragic and absurd June 22, we ran as our headline, "All is Lost,” a track title from the beautiful The New World. Since the departure of the composer, we must learn to live in this new world. A world without James Horner. So many notes will not be written.   In an interview about The New World (and for now only available in French), James Horner said: "Timelessness is not what we are but what we

THE NORWEGIAN PREMIERE OF PAS DE DEUX: THE MUSICIANS’ PERSPECTIVE

The following articles were written in May, shortly after the Nordic premiere of Pas de Deux in Stavanger. They have been left unaltered as a reminder of the bright and eventful time in the months preceding James Horner’s death, both for the musicians and fans alike. We also present here, our final interview with James Horner, conducted on the morning of May 14. 2015, together with Mari and Håkon Samuelsen. A huge thank you to Mari Samuelsen, Håkon Samuelsen, Torodd Wigum, Eric Rigler and Clara Sanabras for your time and your kindness in talking with me for these interviews. Also a

NORWEGIAN PREMIERE OF PAS DE DEUX - THE BIG DAY

Six months after the world premiere in Liverpool, Mari and Håkon Samuelsen brings Pas De Deux to their home country of Norway in a spectacular concert in Stavanger, which also saw James Horner himself conduct suites from Braveheart, Titanic and Wolf Totem. Wednesday morning, I attended the dress rehearsal for the concert. This was my first time hearing Pas De Deux, which I will come back to later. In short, the concert audience were in for a treat! The other selections from the programme also sounded great and ready for live performance. Still, they were making small adjustments. Both Torodd Wigum

NORWEGIAN PREMIERE OF PAS DE DEUX - REHEARSAL

The Stavanger Concert House is an impressive-looking building even from the outside. Opened in 2012, the Fartein Valen concert hall with its 1500 seats has already been renowned internationally for its impressive acoustics. What a great place for a night of James Horner music, including the Nordic premiere of Pas de Deux. James Horner Film Music has been fortunate to enjoy a very good relationship with Mari and Håkon Samuelsen, even preceding the Pas de Deux premier in Liverpool last fall. Once again, we have been allowed to watch up close as this unique event comes together.   As previously reported, James Horner

TITANIC LIVE AT ROYAL ALBERT HALL: A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

Roughly a year ago, when Titanic Live was first announced, we knew this was an event not to be missed. This is the most popular soundtrack composed by James Horner, and to see it performed live in Royal Albert Hall seemed like it would be a very memorable experience. We were not disappointed. 27 April 2015. It is a little past noon when we enter the Royal Albert Hall, an imposing and majestic concert hall built almost 150 years ago, hosting over the course of decades many music legends: Richard Wagner, Arthur Rubinstein, The Beatles, Bob Dylan... The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra,

JAMES HORNER ATTENDS NORWEGIAN PREMIERE OF PAS DE DEUX

After having to withdraw from conducting Titanic Live in London due to a shoulder injury, James Horner returns to the conductor’s podium for a concert in Stavanger, Norway, on 13 May. The main event of the concert is the Norwegian premiere of Pas De Deux, the composer’s double concerto for violin and cello, written especially for renowned Norwegian musicians Mari and Håkon Samuelsen. It will be performed by the two siblings along with the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the concerto, a range of pieces from movies scored by James Horner will be performed, honoring his long and impressive

TITANIC LIVE: JAMES HORNER IN LUCERNE

The launch of the European Titanic-Live concert tour takes place this weekend in Lucerne (March 13-15), with subsequent performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London (April 27, 2015), Prague, Berlin, Vienna, Brussels and Paris. All concert dates are available by clicking on this link: Tour Dates.     To our great surprise, James Horner will conduct the first concerts in Lucerne. He is accompanied by Simon Rhodes, Simon Franglen, Sissel, and Tony Hinnigan.  Over 150 musicians (21st Century Symphony Orchestra) will perform James Horner’s renowned score and period classics from 1912, played by the legendary ensemble, I Salonisti. For an unforgettable experience, The

CONVERSATION WITH JAMES HORNER

"If you build it he will come ..." Just like Ray Kinsella, the character played by Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, a voice (or rather my intuition) led me to create the Association and the James Horner Film Music website. Every minute, every hour spent working for this project was partly guided by an objective I held close in my heart: publish a new, previously unreleased conversation with James Horner. I gave myself five years to get there. Next January we will celebrate four years of JHFM... Unlike the composer, who never listens again to his old music and who never

CLARA SANABRAS : FOR GREATER CLARA

If one had to sum up the music of For Greater Glory in one word, it would be a name. In Latin, Clara means shiny, or glorious, and these two adjectives perfectly suit James Horner's latest album. But this word also refers to a wonderful person who kindly accepted this interview, a year ago, and had never forgotten about us since then. A very accessible and pleasant person, Clara Sanabras takes time to go back on this collaboration which, just like the collaboration with Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, is a real landmark event in James Horner's achievements.           How did you
