THEY TALK ABOUT LEGENDS OF THE FALL

To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the recording of James Horner's score to Legends of the Fall that occurred from April 6 to 19, 1994, we had the chance to collect the memories of Jim Henrikson and Jay Ungar, who participated in the creation of this music. It is a great privilege to publish their thoughts.
We also wanted to open our column to our visitors and give them the floor.

LEGENDS OF THE FALL: AN ANALYSIS OF THE THEMES

We present an analysis of the themes of Legends Of The Fall with first their different appearances in the film and on the album, then a description of each. Indeed, one of the striking features of this essential and splendid score is its thematic richness. James Horner has created a dozen themes that each occupy their own place of importance. We assigned a letter to each theme, and each occurrence is numbered. If the musical passage is present on the album, we have indicated the name of the track and timing. If this is not the case, we clarify that this is an unedited cue with its place on the DVD, Legends of the Fall – Special Edition released in 2000.

Thanks for these links as well as the analysis of the themes and music. 'Legends of the Fall' is arguably my favorite James Horner film score ('Glory' a close second). The photo in the link sure does look like The Montana that's supposed to be in the film, though in reality it was filmed in British Columbia and Alberta. But Alberta being just over the border from Montana looks incredibly like Montana. Only with Mounties instead of regular cops. wink

These links are superb. Great analysis of all the various themes in this wonderful score. Legends Of The Fall has always been one of my favorite film scores. It is stunningly gorgeous and dovetails perfectly with the film.

Thanks for sharing this information.
