The Jurassic Park theme is fantastic.

For that matter, The Lost World score is quite unique among Williams material. It's mostly tribal instruments.

Gustav Holst's "The Planets" is actually my favourite orchestral arrangement. BD Like many others, I must agree that Mars and Jupiter are ultimate win, but for some reason I also fell in love with Uranus: The Magician. Funny, out of all the planets, the song I like the most happens to be the "Uranus" song. :P

Other compositions that I love include Brahm's "Academic Festival Overture, Beethoven's "Egmont", Tchaikovsky's Streicherserenade Fur Streichorchester (guy's got the best surname to pronounce aloud btw) and Mozart's "Turkish March" - which I'm actually learning on guitar as of late, I was surprised to see someone actually had a tab for it here!

Any other Mahler fans in the house? Has to be my favorite. I just can't decide whether I like Mahler 5, 3, 1, 6, or 8 better.

1 2 and 5. Especially 5 dude. Most consider 1 and 5 to be the be all end all of mahler symphonies.

To the guy that referenced brahms, you havent heard brahms until youve heard his requiem and symphony 3.

Yeah 2 and 9 are the best. The last movement of 9 is my favourite symphonic movement. But I really like 1 and 8 as well.
Beethoven and Brahms symphonies are awesome: Beethoven 7 and Brahms 2 are amazing pieces, but tbh, all of them are really. Beethoven's Corialan Overture is also really great.

Most consider 8 and 9 to be the be all and end all. 1 is a magnificent symphony, but late Mahler is just so much better. And 5 I find a little over-rated... everyone raves about the adagietto, and yeah it's beautiful, but Mahler has so much more to say in his last symphonies.
And I find Brahm's Requiem a little dull after the first two movements

He is going to die soon and it is time we found some new living classical composers to replace him.

I sugest Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman and Javier Navarette. Brilliant, imo.


EDIT: Javier Navarette is fantastic.. I suggest you all go listen to the soundtrack of Pan's Layrinth. It's like watching the whole movie again but with the emotion contrast setting on high :P

Pan's labyrinth has one of my favorite sound tracks ever. If you want to hear danny elfman at his best you have to listen to the grand finale from edward scissorhands.

he really is a fantastic composer. he also wrote wicked (and godspell, of course, but i've yet to see that), the music of which was absolutely fantastic.

yeah, he did the soundtrack to quite a number of disney movies. i believe he and alan menken were responsible for colors of the wind.

i think back to the time when i was a child and realize that these are the memories i used to hum. i never would have guessed i'd be analyzing them a mere 10 years later.

The genius of john Williams is his ability to perfectly match a piece of music to a scene. Even if he did do a bit of copying, I still respect him as a film music composer.

And we only have 12 notes to work with, melodies are going to get recycled.

as long as we are on the topic of film scores I thought I would post some epic cues.

arrival to earth

like a dog chasing cars

Some of the most epic pieces I have heard. Also since there is some mention of john williams, welcome to jurassic park At around 4:30 if you aren't getting chills you must be dead

I'll be starting conservatory this year and I'll play classical guitar. I think I will learn to love this type of music

To anyone that plays classical, what do you think is the most difficult as far as technique and theory goes?

well, I have just started classical guitar and personally after playing jazz for years and years the most annoying thing is actually having to pay attention to what fingers I use (pima etc)

But, I'm sure I'll get over that soon :P


Anyone heard much of Peter McConell's work? He does heaps and heaps of game soundtracks. He did the Grim Fandango one! Amazing jazzy tunes :P


great stuff. I suggest you guys check out the whole soundtrack
