It's another instalment of Getting to Know You over at Jenni Elyse's! Write a post and link up. I'd love to get to know you all better!
Today we're talking about composers. Yeah. I have a lot of favorites. Again. Here's my list with just a few favorites:
1. Hans Zimmer: I love every single thing he writes, but if had to pick one, I'd say Batman Begins soundtrack.
2. John Williams: Ditto for this guy. I discovered him when I was 12 and Star Wars came out!
3. Ramin Djawadi: This guy is young and new and learned from the above mentioned guys. I discovered him when I fell in love with music from Prison Break. He's currently famous for Game of Thrones. I found this lovely video that highlights him... and it looks like he had a lot to do with helping on Batman Begins. Yeah. This guy. Keep your eyes on him!
4 . Thomas Bergersen: I wish this guy would become more well known. His stuff is epic! I've recently discovered him and cannot stop listening!
5. David Arkenstone: Another guy I've recently discovered and can't get enough of! Such soothing stuff. You need to calm down and chill? Listen to his stuff!
6. Chip Davis: I couldn't leave him off! Love love love this guy and his group Mannheim Steamroller! I can't do Christmas without him.
There's a ton more that I love, but I have to stop so I can tell you about the. . .
1. Mozart: Can you think of anyone better than him? I doubt it.
2. Tchaikovsky: powerful music. I love every piece. But especially this one.
3. Dvorak: You know the Jaws theme? This guy started it! This song sounds much like Star Wars Throne Room too. Hmm, I wonder who John Williams loved? :)
4. And of course, Beethoven! But I always want to it turn to into this song from the very first album I ever had...Saturday Night Fever. LOL!
And a bonus:
Kurt Bestor of course! He lives in my neighborhood (ish) and he's awesome!
Yeah, it's another subject I could go on and on about. I love music.
Do agree with my choices? Did you discover some new ones to love? Who would be on your list? Make post and go link up at Jenni's!
