The Goldsmith Memorial Ceremony

Indlæg af 224 » man 26. jul 2004 12:35

Fra Filmmusic.com - 07/24/2004

Family, friends, and fans gathered at Hillside Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Friday to say goodbye to legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith, who passed away earlier this week at age 75 after a long battle with cancer.

A brief service in English and Hebrew was followed by several speeches from key loved ones and collaborators, including son Joel Goldsmith, music editor Ken Hall, and Goldsmith's long-time friend, who poignantly recalled that the two would talk on the phone pretty much every evening, always in the hour of ten, no matter where each of them happened to be.

The uncharacteristically cool July afternoon was filled with laughter and tears as those in attendance recalled his humanity, his life, and his love. The service, both intimate and low-key, saw numbers so large that the back terrace behind the Memorial Chapel had to be opened for additional seating.

Among those in attendance were director Richard Donner, whose 1976 film The Omen earned Goldsmith his only Oscar win, and director Joe Dante, with whom Goldsmith collaborated ten times, including on the composer's final score, Looney Tunes: Back In Action, last fall.

Fellow composers David Newman, Lalo Schifrin, James Newton Howard, and Cliff Eidelman, among others, were on hand to pay their respects along with much of the late composer's behind-the-scenes team, various representatives from the SCL and BMI, and his agent Richard Kraft.

Tak!

Interessant at læse, hvilke filmfolk og komponister m.v., der deltog - og viste Jerry Goldsmith den sidste ære.
Hilsen Henrik :)

Af de 3 Goldsmith scores jeg har -



GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH
RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II
STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE - Jubilæums Udgave fra 1998

Der er "The Enterprise" den som hylder ham mest hvis man skulle kigge på en minde-cue og kun måtte vælge én.


Men det skifter nok snart da jeg har tænkt mig at erhverve THE 13th WARRIOR og FIRST BLOOD.

Ja, blandt de 3 scores har du formentlig ret.

Ellers kunne man også lytte til de storslåede (melankolske) temaer, fra f.eks. Rudy, Lionheart, First Knight, A Patch Of Blue eller Papillon.

Scores som Masada, Chinatown, The Wind and The Lion, Love Field, Medicine Man og Air Force One rummer også fine temaer, der kan hylde mesteren.

Andre bud?
(jeg har sikkert glemt nogle :oops:)
Hilsen Henrik :)

det er så scores jeg ikke har endnu - men har læst at lionheart blev spred over 2 cd'er af 40 minutter og så en 3. med højdepunkterne fra de to foregående - men jeg hørte FIRST KNIGHT i går - og det var kun track 9 jeg kunne lide der - kan bare ikke huske hvad den hed
