    SIMON FRANGLEN: "THERE’S NOT A DAY THAT I DON’T THINK OF JAMES."

    I still remember very well my first and only encounter with Simon Franglen. It was just before the Titanic Live concert in London. Throughout the afternoon during rehearsals I had seen him working alongside James Horner. The depth of their collaboration was evident. On many occasions, he had climbed the railings of the concert hall to access the back of the orchestra to ensure that everything was done properly with the synthesizers. A small detail that shows the perfectionism and professionalism of a musician. Minutes before the concert, while we each waited for friends in front of the Royal Albert hall, I[...]

    DUBLIN 2015: A TRIBUTE TO JAMES HORNER

    In the months that have passed since James Horner’s tragic death last June, already several tribute concerts have been performed around the world. These events serve both to preserve the composer’s legacy and also remind us that Horner’s body of work now fully belongs to the history books of music. One of the first concerts that was announced and performed took place in Dublin in September. Performed by the RTE Concert Orchestra, conducted by the well known conductor David Brophy, the concert offered several highlights from Horner’s career. We were fortunate enough to be invited to one of the rehearsals,[...]

    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.

    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[...]

    eDIT FILMMAKER’S FESTIVAL: MASTER CLASS WITH JAMES HORNER

    Following several statements from James Horner from his Master Class talk conducted by Matthias Keller, Editor of Bavarian Radio, on 31 October 2011.   How he got into film music: I studied classical music and first wanted to become a classical composer. For getting commissions and grants you’re told to have a proper so-called power base. So I did the PHD and started writing ‘serious music’ (like Conversations and Spectral Shimmers). And one day I was asked to score a student film. And I agreed to it. I didn’t know anything about film. I wasn’t a great film buff. I was doing[...]

    BAFTA GURU: A CONVERSATION WITH JAMES HORNER

    29 April 2015. With host Tommy Pearson and a small audience, an important 75 minutes was to unfold. It is disheartening to note that this, a typical but always insightful interview with Tommy Pearson, would be the last interview our late maestro would give before his sudden passing on June 22, 2015. With this in mind, the angelic manners of James Horner's conveyance of thought are ever more heartbreaking as he describes some of his career highlights and passions to Tommy and the audience. His wonderfully unique way thinking and speaking those thoughts will be as sorely missed as the mystical[...]

The other selections from the programme also sounded great and ready for live performance. Still, they were making small adjustments. Both Torodd Wigum[...]

    BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND SENSITIVITY: TWO DISSECTED UNTRUTHS

    Everybody has a right to judge James Horner's music and not to like it. Generally this disenchantment is reflected in terribly pejorative verbs such as dig up, borrow, pump, copy, plagiarize ... The kind of actions the composer is accused of, putting forward the idea of ‌‌a lazy craftsman's poor and sloppy work: the pickaxe as an unsubtle tool, borrowing as a sign of weakness, pumping for large quantities, copying for the lack of creativity, plagiarism as a lack of respect towards the other composers. It is difficult to go against this phenomenon because the allegations are undeniable: Indeed, it is indisputable[...]

    TITANIC CONCERT IN LONDON IN APRIL 2015

    Remember: It should have been on May 19, 1999 in London. James Horner and Sony Music had organized the Titanic concert. In the program, there would have been two suites written for the album, Back To Titanic: "Titanic Suite", "Epilogue - The Deep and Timeless Sea", as well as a Celtic medley including Patriot Games / Braveheart / The Devil's Own and the world premiere of a ballet, Celtic, with the Riverdance troupe. Unfortunately consumed by the composition of the score for Mighty Joe Young, the composer had not time to finish his ballet and the concert had to be[...]
