Insipiring Film Scores

Have you ever noticed how much color music adds to movies? Have you ever considered how the story in the movie would feel without the music? For me music in movies, as well as in life, is like spices in food; it gives every event  it's flavor, whether it is energizing, soothing, or inspiring. What I love in film scores is the drama, which the music carries with it, and the fact that it is designed to manipulate the emotions of the viewer and listener to the  story of the movie for maximum psychological impact and emotional catharsis. Some film scores follow me long after the movie is over and inspire me in my everyday life. Here are some film scores that still move me.

The concert (2009) 

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35 by Tchaikovsky
I know it is not an original film score, but the piece gets so much meaning since the whole story evolves around this violin concerto. The concert in Paris by the end of the movie is the climax of the story.

Winged Migration (2001)

Music by  Bruno Coulais. 
Nick Cave wrote the lyrics of the song "To Be By Your Side".

 Gladiator (2000) 

Lisa Gerrard wrote and performed the song "Now We are Free".
The lyrics are in Lisa's invented language

Braveheart  (1995)

Music by James Horner

Schindler's List (1993) 

Theme by John Williams.
Violin - Itzhak Perlman

The Last of the Mohicans (1992)
