||Who is your favorite film composer?
That’s a really hard one. I love most of my favorite composers equally seeing as they all have different distinctive styles, but I do tend to answer Thomas Newman or John Williams to this question. Lately, though, I’ve been listening to a lot of Michel Legrand, a French composer who worked on many movies of the French New Wave, and I absolutely love his scores.
Listen to this piece for “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg’ and dare telling me this is not making you emotional... It’s even more moving if you see the movie and the story it is associated to. I have an undying love for Thomas Newman’s work (American Beauty, The Green Line, The Shawshank Redemption, Revolutionary Road, Little Women, Finding Nemo…) but just considering these past days my answer would be Michel Legrand.
