It might seem strange that an internationally renowned artist like Robert Pattinson would study under the tutelage of an acclaimed classical pianist like Vladimir Horowitz. The story goes that Mr. Pattinson began studying under the legendary Mr. Horowitz when he was 12 years old. That was four years before he even began to study piano seriously. He studied with Mr. Horowitz for several years, and in 2014 he even credited him as a role model in his Instagram post. “Classically trained pianists can translate emotions into music in ways that speak to everyone, even those who don’t normally listen to classical music,” he wrote. “I grew up listening to and admiring the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. Their genius spoke to me. I still believe there is an audience for classical music, and I know there are many people who feel the same way. I want to help change people’s mindsets and give classical music the respect it deserves.”
The ‘X-Men’ Score
It’s not just music from “Twilight” and “Good” that has had a lasting impact on young pianists. The films’ official scores also influenced a lot of people. Alan Silvestri, who composed the songs, went on to become one of the most prominent film composers of our time. He won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his work on the 2009 film “The Iceman Cometh.”
The film’s score is an incredible demonstration of the composer’s genius. It’s got a great mix of jazz, classical, and blues music that is unique to the film. It was even named one of the greatest soundtracks of all time by Rolling Stone. The movie is now considered a cult classic, and a lot of people have become passionate about its music. Many young artists even play the piano just like Alan Silvestri did. In fact, one of the biggest selling points of the film is its amazing soundtrack. It’s become such a valuable resource for aspiring young musicians that there’s even a Wikipedia entry about it. The film’s musical legacy will live on for years to come.
‘The Hunger Games’ Theme
It’s been 10 years since the first installment of the “Hunger Games” series, called “The Hunger Games,” was released. The book was written by Suzanne Collins, who also wrote the screenplay. Her other works include the Collins adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz.” Much like the other films on this list, the “Hunger Games” franchise has had a huge impact on the music scene. Specifically, the series’ iconic theme song, which has gone on to become a cultural phenomenon. It was composed by James Newton Howard, who has gone on to become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand film scorers. He has worked with many big-name directors, including Darren Aronofsky and Michael Bay. The song is now in the public domain and can be used and remixed by anyone.
The success of the first film inspired the sequel. It was released in 2013, and it’s currently the second biggest-grossing film of all time. Besides, the musical score is also one of the most downloaded soundtracks of all time, with over 140 million downloads featuring the iconic song “Welcome to the Jungle.”
Music from the “Hunger Games” series has even been featured on the big screen. The film’s composer, James Newton Howard, has even gone on to work with Quentin Tarantulinu on the upcoming “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” The film will be released this year, so it’s nearly time for another “Hunger Games” comeback! Can’t wait to see what Howard and Tarantulinu cook up this time around.
‘Star Wars’ Theme
George Lucas’ cultural phenomenon that is “Star Wars” had a huge influence on the music scene in the 2000s. That was primarily due to the film’s unforgettable score. John Williams, who has won an Academy Award for his work on the saga, began recording his epic scores for the films during a time when computers could still play songs effectively. Therefore, they were used to create music for film. This was particularly the case for films before the age of Photoshop. He continued to work with the technology to create music for “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace,” “Star Wars: Episode II – The Second Coming,” and “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.”
