Nice tribute piece! I don't have everything identified, but here's what I could work out, identified by the start time...

0:57 Star Trek 2
1:21 Battle beyond the stars
1:52 Krull
2:22 Aliens
2:50 Cocoon
3:40 The journey of Natty Gann
4:09 Willow
5:10 The Land Before Time
5:36 The Rocketeer
7:02 Braveheart
8:40 Apollo 13
11:50 Avatar
15:00 The Legend of Zorro

Now will someone hurry up and get the other scores identified? There's some other scores I am unfamiliar with and want to check out!

Say what you will about Horner, but man he has a gift for melody and for scoring those big emotional moments. I'll take a score by him over one by Zimmer et al any day!

It was great! I really enjoyed it.

I'm still waiting for the Tommy Pearson interview with Horner to show up sometime.

http://www.classicfm.com/radio/podcasts/classic-fm-podcast-24-august-2012/

I wonder why it's never aired?

The very beginning of the interview sounds like Titanic to me. Wonderful tribute piece. A great listen.

Indeed!
I don't think it's Titanic though I haven't identified it.

My Guesses:

01. 00:00 Titanic
02. 00:57 Star Trek II
03. 01:20 Battle Beyond The Stars
04. 01:52 Krull
05. 02:22 Aliens
06. 02:50 Cocoon
07. 03:40 Journey of Natty Gann
08. 04:09 Willow
09. 05:08 The Land Before Time
10. 05:36 The Rocketeer
11. 06:15 We're Back: A Dinosaur's Story
12. 07:01 Braveheart
13. 07:51 [strikeout]Bicentennial Man[/strikeout] The Man Without A Face
14. 08:38 Apollo 13
15. 09:21 Radio
16. 10:00 ? Troy ?
17. 10:35 Avatar (under conversation until 11:50)
18. 12:35 Iris (under conversation until 12:46)
19. 13:48 ? Enemy at the Gates ? (starts under conversation, might be part of scoring session?)
20. 14:30 Titanic, but entirely under conversation and almost inaudible
21. 14:59 Mask of Zorro

16 and 19 are the only ones I can't home in on, but I am missing a few of the most recent releases so they might be in those.

EDIT: to add track times and also the Titanic stuff under conversation towards the end; changed 13 from Bicentennial Man to The Man Without A Face

If you'll allow me to lend a hand:

0:00 - A Beautiful Mind
6:15 - We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story
10:00 - Titanic
10:33 - Avatar
12:40 - Iris
13:45 - Troy

What's left:

7:50 - This one is killing me. The theme sounds similar to one that makes an appearance in The Man Without a Face (in the track "Flying"), but I'm almost positive it's not from that score. Given that most of the scores in the list are presented chronologically, it stands to reason that it's a score from the early-mid '90s.
9:20 - I have absolutely no idea. But I can tell you it's from a Horner score that I've never heard. razz
14:20 - I can't quite make out what it is, due to the low volume.

I'm pretty sure that's Bicentennial Man, I watched the movie just the other day and it's pretty close, but there have been other Horner moments that are very similar

9:20 - I have absolutely no idea. But I can tell you it's from a Horner score that I've never heard. razz

Definitely from Radio: Track 14, 'Gift of the Ball', though as it's recorded by a different orchestra it doesn't sound quite the same.

14:20 - I can't quite make out what it is, due to the low volume.

It's under the conversation regarding Titanic concerts, so I'm pretty sure it's Titanic.

I hope I don't come off as a dogmatic know-it-all, but I'm certain it's not from Bicentennial Man. razz At least, it's not on the official soundtrack album - it could very well be in the film.

I'll take your word for it on this one. And I have heard Radio, although only once, and that was years ago.

It's under the conversation regarding Titanic concerts, so I'm pretty sure it's Titanic.

That would make sense. smile

You were right first time, I've just checked and it's from 'The Man Without a Face', at the beginning of track 6 'McLeod's Last Letter'.

Ah, I didn't even check that track! For some reason, I just assumed it wouldn't contain that theme. Oh, well. Good team work, Ian! smile

Top marks!

The very beginning was from 'A Beautiful Mind'. The scene when all of John Nash's 'friends' climb the school steps. Beautifully poignant scoring, as always.

There will be a part 2 at FSMO soon as there were many scores I left out, including some great recent ones. Like this: https://soundcloud.com/timburden/best-of-2012-james-horners-the

Horner is still my favorite. I LOVE those long 10 plus cues that he gives us. I know all the controversies so need not tell me, I still love his work beyond words. No composer touches my soul more then him.

Happy 60th JH!
