James Horner helped define my love of cinema as a child. One of the greatest film composers of all time. So tragic if he is gone.

James Horner’s scores were rousing, but often w/ a strain of melancholy. Helped give even the biggest blockbusters intimacy & poetry.

The films James Horner scored were often sentimental, but his music was always emotional, and he understood the difference.
