The Masters of Movie Music

These are truly the Masters of Movie Music. We we can not compare them, becouse they are all God in the genre they work in.

Isaac Hayes

Master of blaxploitation-music.

Ennio Morricone

Master of spaghettiwestern-music.

John Williams

Master of adventure and drama-music.

Bernard Herrmann

Master of horror-music.

This list is far from complete. Help me complete it.

Isaac Hayes AND Quincy Jones

John Williams AND Hans Zimmer and probably Jerry Goldsmith from the same category too.

Danny Elfman is a very talented more recent composer too.

And in the italian composer category, to add with Ennio Morricone : Nino Rota, Carmine Coppola cause you cannot watch The Godfather without, and Pietro Mascagni who was more an opera composer (and maybe only that) but you cannot watch Raging Bull without his splendid compositions.
