I heard the Moliere soundtrack by Talgorn and enjoyed it very much indeed. This was the first CD of his I've listened to.

I then bought The Temp, which was a cheap acquisition but there's nothing cheap about the music – it's a decent score with some excellent cues sprinkled around.

I'd be happy to hear more of Talgorn's stuff. Are there any particular orchestral scores of his that you folks recommend as being particularly praiseworthy?

Buy Heavy Metal 2000. Buy it now.

If you liked Goldenthal's Final Fantasy or the more gigantic portions of Goldsmiths' Supergirl or Thirteenth Warrior, buy Heavy Metal 2000 without a second thought.

As Swashbuckler said about the score, "I think he does stuff with brass thats illegal"

Sorry I can't be more helpful...but ALL OF THEM. Seriously, I love everything I've ever heard from him.

Le Brassier, Robot Jox, Delta Force 2, Heavy Metal 2000, Fortress, all of the Dewolfe library cd's, Monty Spinneratz, Rrrr!, and I have some french cd i forgot the name of. Anyway, it's all wonderful.

I launched a similar inquiry after an equally pleasant response to hearing his score for Moliere. Sadly, I have not found the equivalent among other recommendations. The Red Needles has some nice moments, but it is a very different score.

MOLIIERE is the best. I'd put LES AIGUILLES ROUGES second.

Thanks for the recommendation. I just picked up MOLIERE for $4.89 plus shipping on Amazon. Nice deal for a Talgorn!

1) I thought that any Talgorn thread features a lot of recommendations, so there's hardly a reason to start a new one. My favorites are: MOLIERE, LES AIGUILLES ROUGES, PRESIDENT, ANTHONY ZIMMER, FINAL FRONTIER (library), POWER AND GLORY (library), EPIC MOVIE ADVENTURES (both volumes, library), LE BRASIER, DELTA FORCE 2 (although this one would really need not only remastering but also better compilation of the CD - 3 tracks: Orchestral suite, song, synth suite is rather annoying).

2) Is anyone familiar with his concert work (except Vinum et Sanguinem) or his early April Orchestra LP?

I recommend MOLIERE, LES AIGUELLES ROUGE and HEAVY METAL 2000. Good variety there.

Robot Jox... Heavy Metal... both terrific scores. I'm amazed that Mr. Talgorn's career never took off in the U.S.

Isn't he a respected conductor of classic scores ala McNeely, Broughton, Stromberg etc.?

Thor: Isn't he a respected conductor of classic scores ala McNeely, Broughton, Stromberg etc.?

He did a re-recording of Return to Peyton Place for Varese, but that is the only one I can think of offhand.

I think he did SUPERMAN or JAWS or something as well.

I think he did The Phantom Menace tracks that are on one of those Varese compilations (he may have done other things on that CD too).
It's hard to believe he's still only in his forties, he seems to have been around for years.
BTW, that classical CD with the Latin title he composed is NOT like his film music, buyer beware!

I also recommend Heavy Metal 2000. Also, he scored Fortress, which I like alot.

Nope. Superman was Debney and Jaws was McNeely. He conducted Barry's Born Free.

Talgorn also did the Phantom Menace & Other FIlm Hits album which included THE MUMMY and SHAKESPEARE in LOVE in addition to the Episode 1 suite, IIRC.


He also did Star Trek Generations & Star Trek Insurrection for "The Ultimate Star Trek", (Cliff Eidelman conducted the Seattle Symphony ST2, ST4-6, DS9 on that album and Varese used some recordings from Goldsmith's Frontiers CD and Fred Steiner's CD(s) of the Original Series.)

I'm astounded that Thor has not linked to any of the previous Talgorn threads...

His recording of the End Titles to Insurrection remains the best recording of the Star Trek theme I've ever heard.

I've only heard his, Raine's and the OST.

Is there others?

I meant the Goldsmith Star Trek theme - on any disc, in any recording, ever.

Wow. That's high praise indeed. I think I still have that track on "Great Science Fiction Blockbusters" (I sold "The Ultimate Star Trek" a while ago.)
