Reflections on a university wind ensemble performing James Horner’s music for the movie Titanic

March 31, 2009

Sometimes it’s good to be a culture snob.

(To clarify: the concert was good, and the conductor actually often chooses things that are more obscure and difficult than the ensemble or audience might appreciate. But wow…Titanic…I mean, I had a revelation last concert when they played selections from The Phantom of the Opera – that’s what Lloyd-Webber writes his music for, is to be performed a community musical group. And now, I know the same thing about James Horner. ‘Cause it sure wasn’t interesting music in its own right.)
