In the other 'favorite soundtracks' discussion, many people wished there was a discussion strictly for 'song soundtracks', and one strictly for 'score soundtracks'.--------I own both 'kinds', but I favor the instrumental scores and the instrumental portions of 'mixed' soundtracks where there are songs and instrumental tracks mixed.-----THIS is a discussion for INSTRUMENTAL LOVERS, I.E., SCORE LOVERS.--------So let's share our all time favorite scores, and maybe a little about the 'kind' of instrumentation that we like.------------------Currently these are my favorites that I listen to a great deal.
1. 'War Horse' by John Williams.
2. 'Jane Eyre' by Dario Marianelli.

I like full orchestral scores that are largely not 'derivative' in any way, but original. In that score I want excellent instumentation by piano, cello, violin, french horn, trumpet and/ or obeo as solo or as sections of the orchestra, especially strings.-------------I love making new discoveries in the 'score world.'--:)-----OKAY--Your Turn!!!!
