...do you love more? The brass main theme, or the string main theme?

Brass by a mile.

All the negative attention caused by the string theme's similarity to Highway To Heaven really hurt it as a standalone listen.

This reminds me of Spielberg talking about the two Raiders themes that were combined as one to make the final version. That is how I think of the Jurassic Park music. Upon first hearing it and then subsequently, my impression is that it is very regal sounding music. I can't disentangle the front from the back. It is one. Anyway, Ludwig Van broke it down for us coherently thus :-

From LV's site, Lester's comment mirrors the exact same impression as I had, but he endorses his comments in a way that just seems plain "right" to me. The language of (film score) music. smile

The rock version is really nice! He has some pretty good other videos, check out the guy's take on Raiders and a knockout version of Silvestri's Avengers theme.


Nice article, thanks for the link.

Incredible what the Japanese woman is wizarding out of that Yamaha! Spot on..

That slide guitar version is lovely too. If there will be a movie like "Cowboys and dinosaurs" they can hire him..
