James Horner

Famed for his lush, sweeping scores for films including Braveheart, Apollo 13, and Titanic, the prolific composer James Horner was born in Los Angeles on August 14, 1953. Educated at London's Royal College of Music as well as local universities USC and UCLA, he landed his first motion picture assignments during the 1970s, scoring B-movies like The Lady in Red, Humanoids of the Deep, and Battle Beyond the Stars for producer Roger Corman's New World organization. By 1982, Horner had moved on to major studio fare including 48 Hrs. and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and four years later he notched his first Academy Award nominations for his score to the science fiction classic Aliens as well as for the song "Somewhere Out There," from the animated picture An American Tail. In 1989, Horner earned a second Oscar nomination for his score to Field of Dreams, that same year winning a Grammy for his work on the Civil War drama Glory; in 1995 he was honored with two more Academy Award nominations, for Braveheart and Apollo 13.

Horner finally struck Oscar gold in 1997, taking home statuettes for his score to the blockbuster Titanic as well as the film's original song "My Heart Will Go On," a hit for Celine Dion. After writing scores for movies like Commando and The New World, Film Music Masterworks: Original Soundtracks, which contained pieces from some of Horner's best-known work (Apollo 13, Braveheart, Willow, and of course, Titanic, among others), was issued in 2006. Horner's output in the 2000s was not nearly as prolific as in the 1990s, but he continued to produce sterling work, earning three further Oscar nominations for A Beautiful Mind (2001), House of Sand and Fog (2003), and Avatar (2009), the colossal success of which almost rivaled that of Titanic. He also wrote the theme to the CBS Evening News program, heard daily by millions of Americans. He continued to be an in-demand presence in film well into the 21st century, scoring big-budget box office smashes like The Amazing Spider-Man and Ender's Game. The year 2012 saw the release of a lavish, four-disc, 25th anniversary edition of his most popular work, Titanic -- the most successful orchestral score album in history. Horner died on June 22, 2015 when the single-engine turboprop aircraft he was piloting alone crashed in California's Los Padres National Forest west of Santa Barbara. He was 61 years old. ~ Jason Ankeny

Such a legacy and iconic composing style - I can pick out Horner's scores within seconds. Such a loss but also such a gift to us all while he was here to share his talents.

And sorry to be a pest to the bio author/Pando r a editors, but the 2012 4-disc collection was for the 15th anniversary of Titanic, not the 25th.

Love his music. The Beautiful Mind soundtrack is very similar to his (earlier) Bicentennial Man soundtrack (particularl y both intros). Like many great composers before him (Gershwin, Hammerstein, Mozart, and Vivaldi) there is proof his mind was constantly reinvigorati n g and reinventing on successful themes. His death is as regrettable as the fact that we'll never get to hear new music-- or improved variations of his earlier work-- again.

I've been a huge fan ever since Aliens and Willow. I have gone to see some movies simply because James Horner wrote the score. I own the scores for movies I didn't even like because James Horner's music transcended what was on the screen. He will be sorely missed.

James Horner was my favorite artist/compo s e r of all time. I pray for his family during these rough times. I know they will always be proud of what he accomplished . He is my inspiration to want to create musical scores as well in the future. God really knew what he was doing when creating James Horner and giving him his wonderful talent. Star Trek III will always be my favorite of his scores with Rocketeer a close second.

Loved his work from my adolescence in 1990's (An American Tail, Glory). Such beautiful scores came from his talented mind. His fans will miss hearing new wonders from him but prayers to his friends and family that knew him best.
