Unlike many of John's other scores, which, for better or worse, do rely a lot on bombast, Schindler's List shares the more subdued emotional approach common to the most popular eras of classical music

Good. This reminds me of a story I heard about how John reacted to seeing the film for the first time......

Typical list and predictable top five result coming from this source. Schindler's List is such a luvvie score on Classic FM, even though it isn't even top twenty material for the majority of film scor

SCHINDLER'S LIST has always been a great crossover score (to the classical crowd). Same goes for Nyman's THE PIANO. I remember in the 90s, you would always find Doyle's HENRY V in the classical section, probably due to the Simon Rattle connection, so I'm actually surprised it's not on the list.

That's a shame. I've always loved it, even if it's over-played and over-exposed over the years. Huge fan of the film too.

Any Nyman is worth listening to. THE DRAUGHTSMAN'S CONTRACT and GATTACA are my favourites.

I had to check my own top 50, and found it at 47th place. Granted, that list 7-8 years now, and needs serious updating, but it's more or less in that territory that I would place Schindler now as well. Film-wise, however, it's top 5 for me.

I don't understand why classicalists like Schindler's list so much .Does it sound more snobby?

 

My opinion is that the melodies and their respective accompaniments have a classic-style sound to them. It sounds like something Schubert, Brahms, or Mendelssohn could have written, or in that style.
