Film scores keep symphonic music alive, says Iron Man 3 composer Brian Tyler
The 43-year-old American, who has composed scores for more than 70 films, is conducting his music with the Philharmonia Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
Talking about the importance of movie music, Brian said it is a field “bursting” with talented people who are making symphonic music more accessible to the public.
“I’m not only friends with, but I really admire Hans Zimmer and Michael Giacchino, who have been doing some fantastic work,” Brian told the Press Association.
“Thomas Newman has the ability to make me cry when he does these beautiful melodies, and James Newton Howard. These are people that have found a way to make music that I think transcends the genre.”
He added: “Alan Silvestri is another one among so many more. I listen to their work and it’s so impressive and so musical. I think it’s really the modern way of keeping symphonic music alive and in the ears of the public by being associated with movies.”
