2005, DMA, University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music : Horn.
This document explores the essential reasons why and how the sound of the French horn has been adopted so prominently in symphonic film scores in Hollywood. The examination begins with discussions on how music functions in film music in general, why the sound of the French horn appeared frequently in films, and a general assessment of how the French horn was used in Hollywood films scores from 1977 to 2004. The document concludes with three case studies of three symphonic film scores composed by Hollywood film composer, James Horner.
