    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[...]

    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[...]

    WOLF TOTEM: JAMES AND THE WOLF

    Hardly for the first time in a career comprised of more than 130 film scores did James Horner cross paths with the wolf, a fascinating mammal and a source of countless stories, rumors and legends. Their first meeting dates back to 1981, when Wolfen, a horror thriller by Michael Wadleigh (Woodstock) saw Indians-turned-wolves create havoc in the streets of New York. Distressing brass embodied the wolf’s dark side and its sharp fangs, continually threatening tender and innocent flesh. This musical darkness was reprised a few years later with Aliens (1986), where it evoked the stifling atmosphere created by James Cameron, illustrating the[...]

    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[...]

    WOLF TOTEM: A PREVIEW OF THE SCORE

    A voice pierces the silence. And what a deafening silence it has been for more than two years since The Amazing Spider-Man and For Greater Glory. James Horner finally returns to cinemas with strength and panache. Wolf Totem is a new feather on Horner’s already well-stuffed cap, a new shining star in the world of music. Rest assured that if one day a Horner score disappoints us, we will state it plain and clear. We’ve had ample opportunity to sample this score and are confident that, upon its release, Wolf Totem will be a rich, multifaceted album, alternating strong moments[...]

    HORNER / ANNAUD DOSSIER

    Dear readers, This month, Jean-Jacques Annaud's newest film, Wolf Totem will come out in China and France respectively on 19 and 25 February. In January, we had the chance to see this feature film, to listen to the music composed by James Horner, and to briefly discuss with director Jean-Jacques Annaud and film producer Xavier Castano. The latter informed us that Wolf Totem will soon be distributed worldwide including the US by Sony.   To celebrate this fourth collaboration between the American composer and the French director, we decided to dedicate a series of articles to them, through February. Feel free[...]

    THE FRENCH TRAILER FOR WOLF TOTEM IS ONLINE

    Mars Distribution has just put online the French trailer of Wolf Totem. The end of the video does not seem to include James Horner’s music. It still fills the first 90 seconds. Enough to highlight what seems to be the main theme. The film will be released on 19 February 2015 in China and on 25 February 2015 in France. No album has been announced yet.   © China Films Co., Reperage [...]

    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[...]

    AUTUMN NEWS

    In this article we have compiled some information regarding the projects for 2015. We remind you that the nearest major event is the world premieres of Pas de Deux, the double concerto for violin and cello, on 12 and 13 November in Liverpool.   Since the news of James Horner's involvement in the documentary Aviation: The Invisible Highway last July, we have received very few information.

    JAMES HORNER INVOLVED IN WOLF TOTEM

    For two years the rumor have been circulating on James Horner’s participation on Wolf Totem, the next feature film by Jean-Jacques Annaud. (See our article of July 2013) In January 2014, Jim Henrikson confided an interview that the French director and the composer had spoken about the film but nothing was conluded. (See interview)     In recent weeks we were aware that James Horner was in China. For us, this was no accident but we were awaiting official confirmation. It finally happened Friday at a press conference where Jean-Jacques Annaud said that James Horner had joined him on this project. The director[...]
