Justice should be restored! RED HEAT Main Title by Prokofiev.
There is another example of Horner' s talent to steal the pieces from other composers. While Red Heat isn't among the popular Horner soundtracks, there is a track Main Title which is always impressed me with its use of chorus and unusual harmony.
-- "The opening and closing titles are nothing like I've ever heard Horner score before" -- said in Filmtracks review.
Sure. Its because he didn't write it at all! The whole piece is taken from number 2 "The Philosophers" from Sergei Prokofiev hidden satiric "Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution". Listen the example on Amazon.com. Horner added some percussion to it and re-arranged it for the movie. But it never mentioned on the film end credits or CD soundtrack. How about copyright, Mr. Horner!!!
