    With the death of Elmer Berstine , Micheal Kamen and Jerry Goldsmith,
    Is the art of film music dying?

    Because there seems to be not much celebration of film scores coming out

    Nin_Cherry is right. Maybe a few of the classic composers have passed away, but there are so many other young composers who admire their work and want to keep their legacy going.

    It’s funny that you say that, Ritchie. In past years, Bernstein and Goldsmith score’s have been rejected and replaced by younger composers, i.e., in Timeline and Gangs of New York.

    Not to take anything away from the great scores of their twilight years, (First Knight and Far from Heaven, especially), but their heyday was really in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

    Hardly. There is a whole crop of young composers up and coming, plus the guys in their fifties are still cranking out good stuff. Guys like Elfman, Shore, Howard and sometimes even Horner! Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, Christopher Young… Film music is still in very good hands.
