To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Soundtrack Awards, Film Fest Ghent devotes its annual album to all thirteen winners of the coveted World Soundtrack Film Composer of the Year Award over the past two decades. This special compilation features newly recorded pieces by Angelo Badalamenti, Nicholas Britell, Carter Burwell, Mychael Danna, Alexandre Desplat, Patrick Doyle, Michael Giacchino, Elliot Goldenthal, James Newton Howard, Alberto Iglesias, Jóhann Jóhannsson, John Williams and Gabriel Yared.

As a tribute to these masters of film music, this album goes the extra mile, featuring, almost exclusively, studio recordings of pieces and arrangements that have never before been released on CD. This includes concert suites, such as Desplat’s “The Imitation Game” and Giacchino’s “Star Trek, into Darkness and Beyond”, and special orchestral arrangements, such as Badalamenti’s “The Voice of Love” from Twin Peaks and Doyle’s “Never Forget” from Murder on the Orient Express. The album also features the premiere release of music for Fear by Carter Burwell and Troy by 2020 WSA Lifetime Achievement Award winner Gabriel Yared.

Two remarkable bonus tracks bookend the album: the premiere release of the World Soundtrack Awards Fanfare, written by Elmer Bernstein especially for the awards ceremony, and “Tribute to the Film Composer”, a fabulous homage arranged by John Williams that brings together no less than 23 different Oscar-winning or Oscar-nominated film themes.

Performed by the Brussels Philharmonic & Vlaams Radiokoor and conducted by Dirk Brossé, all music is newly recorded by MotorMusic at Flagey’s legendary Studio 4 in Brussels. The album is licensed to Silva Screen Records.

Between Bernstein's Fanfare, Yared's Troy, the great medley arranged by John Williams and his revised Face of Pan from Hook, this is a great selection.

Let me tell you I'm sold !

Nice! I was actually just reviewing SUCCESSION (published soon), and this was a nice rendition of the theme.

Also neat to see live musicians playing in the same room -- with appropriate corona distance.

It shows you the wonderful character of John Williams that he would do the Tribute to the Film Composer at the end.

You know, I wish to make a very humble thank your to the film composers and the first person who decided to have music written for films.

God bless em.

Will there also be a Music for Film-album for Alexandre Desplat, like the Beltrami-, Burwell- and Blanchard-albums?

Cool album. I agree with Jason's top picks, and I would only add Elmer's fanfare from the beginning of the album. The revised "Face of Pan" is gorgeous, gorgeous.
