    Three years after James Horner’s passing, we thought we would bring together three interviews on The Mask of Zorro, whose soundtrack album was released twenty years ago, in October 1998. The rather short first interview was the introduction to a lengthy talk with the composer on Titanic. That discussion took place on 28 November 1997 during the recording sessions of the first Zorro score and the transcription was published as The Words of James Horner #4. The second interview dates back to the fall of 1998 and coincided with the album release. The third interview finds James Horner reminiscing about The Mask of[...]


    Now that La-La Land Records has released a behemoth four-disc set that pretty much closes the book on James Horner’s Titanic, we publish an interview given by the composer to Cinéphonia Magazine in 2005. Again, please remember that the original interview tapes have been lost and so for this English text we only had the French publication to go by. As always, we have tried to stay true to James Horner’s voice.   Cinéfonia Magazine: What do you remember today of the adventure that so profoundly impacted both the movie industry and film music ? James Horner : It’s always nice to go back to[...]
