It's not a score, but do check out his Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra with David Sanborn. It's gorgeous.

I noticed that "Suspect" is available at iTunes. It is a long out of print score from him, and far from my favourite (no themes, but basically indistinct string suspense music similar to the less engaging portions of the Die Hard series).

In any case I had it only in LP as one of my first purchases and "updated" it to the digital version.

My favorite is FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON... sadly, still unreleased.


Kamen's signature main and end titles for the series were superb as were his scores for episodes 1, 4, and 12.

...and loving it! My favorite so far is ROBIN HOOD. What do you guys recommend?

Funny I have been on a Kamen kick too! Started with his gorgeous theme for "BAND OF BROTHERS".

I received BAND OF BROTHERS yesterday, and it is incredible! I'm glad you like Kamen too, I respect your opinions.

I haven't heard Shining Through (or even heard of it) but based on you recommendation it's definitely going on my radar!


Hi buddy! I just listened to the main theme and love it. There's a new copy on Amazon for almost $2000! I hope this gets a rerelease soon.

I can recommend it too. It's worth it (maybe not $2000, but take a look at those great prices on wink

I'm afraid that I like the idea of Michael Kamen more than the practice of listening to his music - at least on CD. I believe Band of Brothers to be his master work and can listen to that all day. I get distracted by the Beethoven and Sibelius in Die Hard/Harder and would like an extended LTK before being completely convinced by that score.

I want to hear more of his concert hall music, but if he conducted Finlandia I'm sorry to say that I found it to be drearily slow.

I like his persona and that he worked with our Kate* and was appalled when he died so prematurely, but I'll need to do a lot more listening before I can call him a consistent favourite.

I received my copy of "Shining Through" today and cannot wait to listen to the entire score. The main theme is lovely. I would not have connected with this gem if I had not happened upon this thread. Thanks!
