The Classics (2LP)
Performed by stellar musicians of the day, the album highlights Horner’s unique legacy by showcasing some of his greatest ever movie themes, including ‘Titanic’, ‘Avatar’, ‘Troy’ and ‘Braveheart’, to name but a few.
This vivid collection of back-to-back blockbuster hits brings together Horner’s unmistakeable movie themes, re-imagined in arrangements especially written for some of our top musicians including internet sensations, The Piano Guys; cello wizards, 2CELLOS and Tina Guo; outstanding guitarist, Craig Ogden; Classic BRIT Award-winning saxophonist, Amy Dickson together with leading harpist, Lavinia Meijer; acclaimed violinist, Lindsey Stirling and exceptional piano discovery, Alexis Ffrench.
This eagerly-anticipated album pays fitting tribute to the much-missed composer by spotlighting Horner’s musical versatility and absolute mastery of the genre and presenting an array of key themes from his magnificent scores.
Sarah Thwaites, Head of Sony Masterworks UK noted: “The music of James Horner has not only provided the soundtrack to some of the world’s most-loved films, but also holds a very special place in people’s lives. With ‘James Horner – The Classics’, we simply wanted to create a collection independent of story lines and characters that allows the listener to enjoy major masterpieces by one of movie history’s finest composers”.
