Default Classical should return as the leader in type!

I personailly think classical has a very powerful sound, and is one of my fav types, and I am saddened how it is not prodeuced well anymore.

Well, it does have a long back-catalogue to continually re-hash. I'd disagree that its not produced well anymore too. Most music that is create specifically for films can be described as classical in one way or another and its all pretty good (apart from the music for Troy, possibly the most ill-suited music I've ever heard, did anybody else notice that?)

Murder Junkie, don't make me bust you up in another argument.

I have many good things to say, you just wouldn't know it in your generous and substantial contribution of 8 posts. I was just yanking your chain, you are new I suggest you get used to it. Learn some humility and you will be all right here, I would have had more respect for you if you had told me that I was hung like a gerbil or some other witty retort. Maybe next time

well..I know a lot of classical composers of this period..but I think this is not a very good time for the production of classical music..everything has been tryed in the past.

Initially Gabriel Yared was hired to do the job, and he worked on a score for around a year. Wolfgang Petersen (director) actually loved his work but after one of the test screenings, the focus group at the preview absolutely hated the music and thought it was "overpowering, too big, old fashioned and it dated the film." So Yared's score was completely rejected by Peterson abruptly. The strangest idiosyncrasy about it was that the score was yet to be completed and Yared wasn't even given a second chance to fix anything up. The production crew and Peterson then decided seemingly on a whim that the score was non-fixable so they hired James Horner who only had a month and a half to write an entire score!

The result? Like you say it was very poor (in regards to appurtenance) and surprise, surprise, Horner uses his trade-mark three-note motif. But he doesn't have stop there, oh no, Horner overuses his motif to a state of hilarity - I know I couldn't stop laughing at it. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go and watch almost any movie where Horner is the composer, like "The Land Before Time," “Braveheart,” or “Glory,” etc. But if you've seen “Troy” then you should know what I'm talking about as he uses the motif in that film almost non-stop, as I mentioned earlier.

I must admit, Horner is one of my favourite film composers despite his perceptible flaws (all great film composers have theirs). Moreover, I believe he did a good job under on “Troy” for the time he was given. I think the ultra-quick composing is the fastest film score ever written.
