Love this guy, from ROBOTJOX to THE TEMP (that end title!) to his fantastic DeWolf music to his utterly awesome ASTERIX AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES - That one's just fantastic.

I really wish someone would release EDGE OF SANITY. Marvelous score in that rich classically-elegant horror style, a la Robert Folk's THE SLAYER or (as mentioned elsewhere) Williams' THE FURY. Here's the main theme:

Someone above mentioned his score from Delta Force 2. This was a movie that my family rented when I was in high school. I was going to hang out with friends, and the movie was godawful so I never finished watching it, but the music that I did hear from the first ten or fifteen minutes or so made a huge impression. Unfortunately, I never caught up to the soundtrack album, which is now hovering around the $50 mark on Amazon. I would definitely buy a re-release, but who knows who owns what there …

Talgorn is a technically brilliant composer whose vast talent has never been fully exploited in film music.

In addition to the film scores mentioned I also recommend his dramatic cantata "Vinum et Sanguinem"

The only CD of his that I've never warmed to is FORTRESS (promo score CD from Intrada).
It's okay in small patches (Kick Fight, Freedom), but I find it too sombre and dull overall.

I for one would love to see an expanded Fortress get a release. Come on Intrada, revisit this gem!

Although I'm French - or maybe because I'm French (!) - I must say the American-sounding style of this composer very seldom appeals to me. I like the religious piece VINUM ET SANGUINEM, his MOLIERE and to a lesser extent THE CHILDREN OF TIMPELBACH. Yet I listened to various other soundtracks such as LE BRASIER, ANTHONY ZIMMER, LES AIGUILLES ROUGES, ASTERIX AUX JEUX OLYMPIQUES, LAISSE TES MAINS...but they didn't do much for me. My favourite album is probably the library music CD PAST LIVES, PAST TIMES: just superb.

As far as I can remember, Frederic Talgorn was not particularly happy with the orchestra performance and never really pushed for a commercial release, apart from the promo cd.

That's really nice! I hadn't heard this one. Thanks for sharing. Is it commercially available?

You what?! I have both "Delta force" DVDs and "Delta force 2" is enormously entertaining, and the scene at the end where they are dragged through the jungle by a helicopter surpasses many scenes in the James Bond franchise.
Talgorn's music I remember because I remember that I noticed the composer was the same as the one who brought me the fantastic "Robotjox" soundtrack (his best, and a great film too) but was disappointed by the cheap execution. It suffers badly from horrific 1990s trend of the cost cutting "synthesizer replacing orchestra syndrome", which is why I never bought the CD.

D.S.
