The Hollywood Reporter asked some of the year's best composers what their favorite scores are, who their favorite composers are, and when they knew they wanted to be composers.
THR's Composer Roundtable participants all agreed: Ennio Morricone is amazing. Additionally, the composers told THR about their other favorites.
"'Vertigo' by Bernard Herrmann, one of the most amazing collaborations between a director and a composer ever. [Herrmann's scores] are the reason I got interested in film music." -Johann Johannson (Sicario)
This year's greatest composers sit down with The Hollywood Reporter for their annual Composer Oscar Roundtable, featuring Harry Gregson-Williams (The Martian), Daniel Pemberton (Steve Jobs), Michael Giacchino (Inside Out), Carter Burwell (Carol), and Johann Johannsson (Sicario).
