More Ten Best Film Music Composers

Further to my blog post from yesterday, Ten Best Film Music Composers, some points:

Miklós Rózsa. How could I forget him? (I wrote the above piece while watching the latest installment of Kim's Convenience. That series has really gone downhill in the script department.)

David Shire, Dimitri Tiomkin, and Victor Young were excluded, but I was limited to ten names.

James Horner was not on there as I felt he would fit comfortably on a "fifty best" list.

Leonard Rosenman would be in the top twenty.

Hans Zimmer? Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da,


Postscript: A few years ago I worked with a woman who was from Hungary; as was Mr Rózsa. We were talking about people from that country and I mentioned the composer's name. She said: "Yes, Rózsa Miklós." She knew about him.
