James Horner created blockbuster scores for such box office blockbusters as Titanic, Braveheart and Avatar. Here's our choice of his ten best soundtracks.
James Horner's soundtrack for the 1997 blockbuster Titanic played a key role in the film's phenomenal success. Like the movie itself, the music combines traditional storytelling with some very modern elements. There are Irish pipes, whistles and fiddles a-plenty; but there are also unashamedly 1990s synthesiser sounds and ethereal vocals from Norwgian performer Sissel Kyrkjebø floating out over the icy north Atlantic. Titanic won the composer two Oscars - for the score and Best Song - the Celine Dion hit, My Heart Will Go On. The first soundtrack CD sold a staggering 26 million copies, making Horner the highest selling contemporary composer, even surpassing John Williams.
