With a revamped campaign page and a much lower amount to raise we are confident that this one will get us the required results. This time around there will be no concert pieces, just the two scores for THE HAND and THE DRESSER. Check out the preliminary artwork at the KS page. A huge thank you goes out to Nikiforos Chrysoloras and James Wingrove for making this happen!

We are excitedly happy to announce our new Kickstarter campaign for our passion project later this month. This one will be without the concert works and it’ll focus on the two scores from THE HAND and THE DRESSER. While the omitting of the 14 concert works is regrettable, it's of financial necessity. I know that you share our enthusiasm and love for the music of James Horner. Having the blessing and support of Sara Horner means the world to us and cements our vision to bring these unreleased gems in the Horner canon to a wider audience.

We sincerely hope that this meets with your approval and know we can count on your continued support for our renewed campaign. For James!

Cinematic Sound Radio's Jason Drury chats with Perseverance Record's Robin Esterhammer & orchestrator | producer Nikiforos Chrysoloras about the upcoming James Horner re-recording project, and the ongoing Kickstarter campaign. Thank you to Jason Drury and Erik Woods for the invitation! 

Enjoy!

P.s. Please accept our apologies for the sound of our voices and foreign English accents! 

New week, new update!! It's time for our next preview.

This time, it's cue M102 - The Lizard's Tail from Oliver Stone's The Hand. As with the previous cue this is an Avid Sibelius & NotePerformer audio-video export reconstructed and prepared by the project's producer & orchestrator, Nikiforos Chrysoloras

Intense orchestral effects, utilizing flutter tongue Woodwinds, Piano chromatic clusters, Percussion, the Blaster Beam (unfortunately, it is the one instrument missing as it cannot be easily reproduced), and high Strings, juxtaposed with the score's haunting, yet calm, Main Theme, played by the Flutes, doubled with Vibraphone and Violas. 

With 21 days to go, we are getting closer to the finish line, and we are very excited to bring this score to life with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support. Share, promote, and help us realize this amazing project.

As always, looking forward to your comments. Enjoy!

We are currently in the middle of preparing James Horner's scores, and we'd like to share with you an Avid Sibelius & NotePerformer audio-video export of one of The Dresser's various versions of the Main Titles, painstakingly reconstructed and prepared by the project's producer & orchestrator, Nikiforos Chrysoloras

In this version, James Horner has a Boy Soprano performing the melody (just like the End Titles) - instead of the Woodwinds that ended up in the film version - plus a slightly altered Piano line at the beginning of the cue.  

We can't wait to re-record this beautiful and intimate score by the legendary composer this coming June in Prague, with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra

Let us know what you think, and whether you'd like more cues from The Dresser and The Hand to follow. Enjoy!

We are excited to announce Grammy & Emmy award winning pianist Gloria Cheng, who will be joining us in this endeavor. 

Her relationship with James Horner begun as early as 1986, performing on the An American Tail score, followed by Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and Troy, to name just a few. 

Apart from being widely recognized as one of the most adventurous interpreters of contemporary music around, Gloria is one of the most sought-after session pianist in Hollywood. She has worked with Don Davis, Michael Giacchino, Randy Newman, Maurice Jarre, Alexandre Desplat and she is John William's go-to-performer on the piano and has worked with him on many scores. And now she is performing on our recordings. 

S' marvelous, s' wonderful!!!
