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

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,
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.

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
James Horner has just started recording his score to Carlo Carlei's film in Abbey Road 1 and Air Studios in London. On both his Twitter and Facebook account, the British countertenor Iestyn Davies shared two pictures from the recording sessions, along with some of his impressions: "My view from the booth, Studio 1 Abbey Road. There's James 'Titanic' Horner waving.". "Have to say, James Horner's Romeo & Juliet score made me weep eternally in the sound booth. Took me back to Titanic 1997" "Lovely atmosphere last night. Enjoyed the evening hugely! Now off to Abbey Road (clang) to sing some James Horner." "Final
