Celluloid Tunes # 08: James Horner in Vienna (2nd International Edition)

This is probably our most ambitious episode to date. We went to Vienna to see and hear James Horner perform a concert of his own music during the annual Hollywood in Vienna event. Not only that, we got to talk to Horner himself, conductor David Newman (who is a famous film composer in his own right) and concert producer Sandra Tomek. Additionally, you can hear many of the actual concert recordings of the pieces in this episode. If there ever was a must-hear episode of Celluloid Tunes, this is it!

We appreciate any feedback, either in the comments field or on tjhaga@celluloidtunes.no. Please like our facebook page and feel free to share the episode in your social media.

    Thor, thanks for taking the time to do these interviews and add the music pieces. It was interesting to hear the producer talk about attitudes about film music in Vienna, Newman talk about orchestras playing film music, and of course to hear Horner’s thoughts on the concert and other topics. I thought it interestimg when Horner said that he doesn’t look back or listen to the music he wrote in the past when so much of his current works were reflections on and refinements of his prior work. Anyway, just wanted to comment so you know that your site and work has not gone uunappreciated. Incidentally, your post on the FSM board brought me to your site.

      Much appreciated, Travis. Sorry it took so long for your post to come through. For some reason, I had to approve it. It’s heartwarming to know that people actually listen and visit this site!
