I will. Thanks.

Sorry if you were offended by the Elfman comment, but i do believe that even though Elfman isn't an extremely skillful composer he has a passion for film music that allows him to write pretty cool stuff. His Batman score is quite good and despite several orchestrational mistakes, his main theme manages to capture the dark essence of the film very successfully i would say (Edward Scissorhands is quite good too IMO). Well..he is another composer who definetely plagiarizes other composers but what can we of a composer is difficult these days.

Nope i don't find it strange at all! Goldenthal has successfully used electric guitars in his scores before and it's quite an experience to listen to how he uses the instrument. The electric guitar is part of his orchestration and is put there in a very meaningful way. Check out his scores to Heat and In Dreams.
We might discuss more about the use of the guitar once you've listened to them.
Goldenthal's mentor (teacher) was John Corigliano, a worldwide respected American Contemporary composer. He is still alive and i had the pleasure and honor of meeting him in person when he visited my school in Texas for masterclasses. You should check out his first Symphony(titled AIDS symphony). More about that when you listen to it. He also has written two scores. Altered States and The Red Violin (which won an oscar).

> Tell me more about the oratorio. My favorite Williams is of course
> Schindler's List. A very simple but effective effort.

I agree about Williams's Schindlers' List. Hmmmm..Goldenthal's oratorio is quite a hard work to analyse and i think it would be better if you just took my word for it and buy it anyway. It's a work i'm still trying to comprehend (partly because i could only find a used copy with no inside notes saying more about the work, and partly because there is just too much stuff to get involved with-especially in the first and third movements). Buy it though. If you can still find it. It's well worth the money.

Have a good day/night,

Thanks for writing,
