    ANIMATED VISUAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR "CONQUEST OF THE AIR"

    Mercury Classic presents a custom animation set to James Horner’s composition, “Conquest of the Air” from his score to the 2012 student film, First in Flight.  Eschewing the context of aviation pioneering that was the subject of the film for which the music was written, the animator has instead chosen a fairly abstract approach, using dandelion seeds alighting in the air and patterns of origami birds aloft as a visual metaphor for the auditory experience that many listeners have described as ‘ethereal’, ascribing a floating sensation to the work.  Throughout the entire composition, we are presented with a backdrop of[...]

    COLLAGE – THE LAST WORK – EXCLUSIVE REVIEW

    It is only one year and a half after its world premiere performance in London that Collage is at last brought to the general public’s knowledge on a dedicated album: Collage – The Last Work. Recorded in London on May 30th, 2015, Collage is indeed James Horner’s last recording and his last concert work. A few weeks after we learnt about his passing, it was revealed that James had composed suites and themes for Antoine Fuqua’s latest film The Magnificent Seven, based on the script only. So it would appear that those suites are James Horner’s last work, at least[...]

    COLLAGE: SOUVENIRS FROM LONDON

    Photo credit: © Etienne Walter   After the overwhelming revelation that was Pas De Deux and the magical days we spent with James Horner and Hakon and Mari Samuelsen in Liverpool during November 2014, it was hard for us to resist attending the world premiere of Collage, a concerto for four horns. So we set out to London toward the end of March 2015, full of enthusiasm and eager to discover this new concert work. Five months prior to the premiere, James Horner had told us that he hadn’t really started work on Collage, even though he was toying with a few ideas.[...]

    COLLAGE: INTERVIEW WITH DAVID PYATT

    Photo credit: © Etienne Walter   We had a chance to sit with David Pyatt, one of the four horn soloists for James Horner’s Collage, a concerto for four horns and orchestra.  As is apparent from the words themselves and the tone of the interview, this interview was conducted before James Horner’s death this summer.  We spoke with David on March 27, 2015 at Royal Festival Hall, the day of the premiere performance of Collage.   JHFM: We want to know a little bit about the story, how this work came to life. PYATT: We've worked with James Horner--I've probably worked with him first about[...]

    FSM ONLINE: A TRIBUTE TO JAMES HORNER

    A month after James Horner’s tragic death on June 22, Film Score Monthly honors him with the following program: - An article written by Tim Burden with previously unpublished images like the photo at top picturing, left to right, James Thatcher, John Ryan, James Horner, David Pyatt and Richard Watkins. This photo was taken on the evening of the world premiere of Collage in late March 2015. The article features a conversation with Hugh Seenan, friend of the composer and principal French horn London Symphony Orchestra between 1984 and 1997. Here is an excerpt from that conversation: "James Horner was a wonderful and[...]

    COLLAGE - THE WORLD PREMIERE IN LONDON

    The world premiere of Collage, the new concerto for four horns and orchestra composed by James Horner, took place on Friday, March 27, 2015 at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The last rehearsal with the composer was held in the morning. Like in Liverpool on the occasion of Pas de Deux, we could see James Horner provide his final comments to the musicians and conductor Jaime Martin. In the afternoon, we had the honor to interview horn player David Pyatt on the creation of Collage, the place of the horn in James Horner’s music, and a possible recording of the[...]

    COLLAGE BY JAMES HORNER: D-10

    10 days from now will be the world premiere of the latest work in concert composed by James Horner. Its name has been known for a few days: Collage: A Concerto for Four Horns and Orchestra. The composer regularly draws parallels between music and painting. The name may refer to the collage technique of combining separate elements of different natures. We think, for instance, of the famous collages by Henri Matisse.     This work is co-commissioned by the Houston Symphony and the International Horn Society. Next year the Houston Symphony will perform the North American premiere of the concerto. More information here: houstonsymphony.org[...]

    NEW JAMES HORNER COMMISSIONED WORK - FOR FOUR HORNS!

    The London Philharmonic Orchestra reports that they will perform several commissioned works the 2014-2015 season, including the world premier of a concert work by James Horner, "for four horns." On March 27, 2015, Horner's new concert work will be showcased between performances of Tchaikovsky's Fantasy Overture from Romeo and Juliet and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. This proceeds another concert work we've also reported on: a double concerto for violin and cello, to premier in Liverpool this November.   One of the four horn players is frequent James Horner collaborator, James Thatcher. The composer himself has a special relationship with the French horn, both[...]
