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 II "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!!!
