I may have mentioned this before but my relative unfamiliarity with the Dragon scores means that when a cue comes on shuffle, I listen to it with rapt wonder before realizing what it is. Genuine amazement at how good it is. It happens so frequently, I'll be disappointed when I start recognizing them and can't be so satisfyingly surprised anymore.

Try PAN again, then. Not so much the second half but everything up to 'Tramp Stamp' is on the same level.

Compositionally it's on the level with the DRAGON scores.

And that, people, is why pub is one of the best members around here!

I was blown away by Boy Who Could Fly and now cycle across town to it, along with Flying Ship Fight. Those power-punch developments of the themes are helping me get into the rest of the score now. It's more evidence that film score as a genre, and composers talents, seem to shine best from fantasy films. I've only known Powell so far for Bourne (which I know inside out) and X-Men 3, which I dip into occasionally. I must try harder to delve into his Dragon scores; are there any other exemplar works of his with the same qualities as these?

The world premiere of John Powell's Prussian Requiem will take place at the Royal Festival Hall on 6th March 2016, in case anyone is interested in attending.

Jennifer Pike playing The Lark Ascending and Sol Gabetta playing Elgar's cello concerto are not be sniffed at either.
