I thought this may help others as well, but I know I need it for so many out there. I try to pronounce a few, but after finding another film score fan and comparing pronunciations, I realized I don't know exactly how to say certain names.

I'll go first: Michael Giacchino (MY-kul juh-KEE-no)
[I heard him pronounce it himself in an interview; before that I thought it was Jee-uh-CHEE-no]

And I have one specific question: Is it Bruce Brow-tun or Bruce Brah-tun?

How do Yugoslav names go?

I'm assuming it's Doozhan Raditch.

Based on having heard commentary featuring a Yugoslav soccer player with the same first name, it's more like "Dooshan".

I've got a good one. Anyone know how to pronounce "Wojciech Kilar"? Love his music and I feel like a schmuck that I can't say his name correctly.

I think I heard somewhere that it was "Why-check Key-lar"

How about Ramin Djawadi? Particularly which syllables are stressed?

rah-MEEN?

RAH-min?

RAY-min?

juh-WAH-dee?

jawa-DEE?

Now that's a thinker.

I think it's wah-CHECK KEY-lar. Not sure though. Might be kih-LAR.

Vo-Check Key-Lahr.

The "o" of the "Vo" part of his first name is a very short vowel, as in "pop"... not a long vowel.

I was joking.

I hope we get a Polish native speaker in here, because I think it's
VOY-CHECK

And I can never remember the correct pronunciation of Maurice Jarre's and Jerome Moross's last names. Anyone?

 
 Posted:   Oct 19, 2010 - 3:38 PM   
 By:   Urs Lesse   (Member)

Maurice Jarre

Hard to phoneticize in English. I guess it's like "jar", but the j pronounced much softer, like a sound between a J and a SH. Not sure, but maybe like the "zh" in "Zhivago".

Ok, Bronislau is easy enough, but what about Kaper? "Capper?"

Carper or Cahrper

Then there's the case with Franz Waxman. It's pronounced "WAX-Man" but the German pronounciation is "VOX-Mann".

I would think it would be "KAY-per", but maybe not.

Here's what I've thought so far, but it could very well be wrong:
I always thought Jarre was "jar", but I heard someone else say "jzar-AY"
Moross, I think, is "more-OSE"

Bronislau (orig. Bronislaw) Kaper: BRAW-nee-swaff KAH-pehr

Wojciech Kilar: VOY-chekh KEE-lahr

Stop looking skeptical, I have Polish relatives and know how to pronounce the language. smile

It's not.
