James Horner has once again prooved himself to be a composer of emotions. "Wow" is all I have to say about this score.
Horner's main theme in Iris, first played by the French Horn soloist snuck up on me with force, followed by the "sweeping" strings. Though his music for the movie is shorter than others he has done, it is superbly well done.
Joshua Bell, the violin soloist did an incredible job. He hit notes I never thought were possible on the violin.
Overall, this is a nice score and should be recognized as one of Horner's best works of arts.
