James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith crop up quite often on my soundtrack albums, but the one that I have the most movie soundtracks by is...Tangerine Dream.

Of course, Georg Friedrich Händel wasn't a film composer because there were no films in his times. But I always liked his Sarabande in Kubrick's Barry Lyndon.

I'll ask my daughter whether she can play it for me on the violin. Maybe I'll find the notes in the www.

It was pissing me off actually... because I feel I should have recognized that piece but I didn't at the time, and that's very frustrating. It's a beautiful score though.

This guy is easily climbing to the top of my list with only a single (but powerful) piece of music:

Zbigniew Preisner - Lacrimosa:

No one thought of Leonard Bernstein? West Side Story?

Carmine Coppola? Godfather 1 & 2, Apocalypse Now?

Loved Michael Kamen's work on The Three Musketeers. And Jerry Goldsmith's great.

Richard Hagemann did some nice scores for John Ford's westerns.

Ry Cooder's score for Long Riders is excellent.

Seems lately I'm stuck on Vangelis' "Blade Runner" score - all those relentless ostinati-like patterns with the floaty atmospheric melodies.

James Horner - ALIENS

Kind of out of topic because they are not exactly movie composers:

I'm also a fan of Walter (Wendy) Carlos, Vangelis, Franz Schubert and Mancini as per mentionned above.

There should be threads for series music composers and video games music composers as well, they should not be underestimated.

[list=][/list]A few I don't think have been mentioned

Goblin (Suspiria, Dawn Of The Dead)
John Carpenter (Halloween)
Curtis Mayfield (Superfly)
Three Tough Guys by Isaac Hayes. Here's a gem with a nasty guitar solo....

Lalo Schifrin..... I'd single out Dirty Harry.
