I wonder can somebody and something compete with this powerhouse combo


Recommended Posts

Towering Inferno, Jaws, Superman, E.T., SW OT and three Indy's.

What can compete with this 10 insane scores?

Bernard Herrmann for example has certainly the more original and powerful body of work.

 

Vertigo, Fahrenheit 451, Psycho, North by Northwest, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Jane Eyre, Cape Fear, On Dangerous Ground, Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons - there isn't a single film composer who can surpass or probably even match this 10 score combo.

I'm a little confused...is the idea to pick your ten favorite scores by another composer and stack them up against the Williams scores you've picked?

I think they are asking does any composer have ten scores to compete with those ten of Williams. And the answer if of course yes.

You mean a ca. 15-years period of music?

 

Wolfgang Mozart 1776-1791 (end of Salzburg period - Requiem)

Ludwig van Beethoven 1803-1818 / 1812-1827

Richard Wagner 1844-1859 (Tannhäuser - Tristan & Isolde)

Pyotr Tchaikovsky 1876-1891 / 1878-1893 (most of his career took place in little more than 15 years!)

 

to name the few

 

Edit: Williams 1977-1993 and Tchaikovsky 1876-1893 are about the closest match there ever was and likely there ever will be in the context of this topic.

Thanks for the laugh.

 Mozart never scored a film.
