This compilation collects 10 of the prolific Hollywood film music composer's best-known works, from his early pieces like STAR TREK: THE WRATH OF KHAN through APOLLO 13 and the Mel Gibson-directed BRAVEHEART. It also features the much-loved theme from TITANIC as well as his early 21st-century work for TROY.

Collecting together recordings of selections from the most recognizeable films scored by James Horner, this new budget-priced collection in Silva's Masterworks series is not as strong as the recently-issued John Williams collection, mostly due to the lack of new material. Everything here has appeared on previous Silva compilations. Perhaps reflecting the decline in the composer's knack for picking instant Oscar bait, the most recent inclusion is a suite of Horner's replacement score for Wolfgang Peterson's Troy. Not as arresting as the original soundtrack recording, this suite sadly sets the precedent for most of what's here - faithful-but-redundant readings of a repertoire that mixes Horner's identifiable attractive hymnal writings with his equally identifiable (uncredited) adaptations of iconic phrases from sources as diverse as Schumann (Willow), Mascagni (The Mask Of Zorro), Holst (Braveheart's rhapsodic love theme), Britten (Troy's Trojan theme), Shostakovich (the Achilles theme) and Ralph Vaughan-Williams (Troy's love theme isn't quite Thomas Tallis, but it's not far off) among others. Yet for all diverse influences channeled here, there is a remarkable consistency to it - and that is Horner's skill: to mould familiar ideas in fresh ways to the emotional needs of each film he comes to.
