Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Will there ever be another Bach/Beethoven? Will the siren call of Hollywood money dilute the talent pool, thereby eliminating that possibility?

Does anyone even want to be Bach/Beethoven? (Or even Gershwin, for that matter).

Pure compositional greatness largely divorced from 'soundtrack necessities' (like total time, bombast, cliche, etc)...orchestral music with structural power and beauty...classical formalism filled with real musical surprise and wonderment...is this all just a thing of the past?

Dave,
Check out Mortons' Imdb page and keep scrolling down, all the way to 1935!

As you don't know much JG then listen to this, it is so seductive....

Had a listen to Cuthroat Island and though very good, I prefer JW, which had just a little more about it for me, but I am biased.
