I really really love modern classical music - what I call "theatrical music". Stuff like John Williams and Basil Polidouris - you know, the big theatrical music scores.

I love Vangelis' "Conquest of Paradise" from 1492.

I love O Fortuna (okay, not exactly a movie piece).

"Russian Navy Hymn" as performed in the Hunt for Red October (Basil Polidouris).

The Jurassic Park theme is one of the most spectacular scores I've ever heard (John Williams).

Another all-time favourite of mine is the Jupiter piece in Gustav Holsts' "The Planets".

Is anyone creating this kind of music outside of movie score purposes? Can you experts recommend some more titles along these lines? I just can't get enough of it.

Who can beat Itzak Perlmahn playing the theme from Schindler's list. Or, how about Yo Yo Ma on the cello for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon?

Not to question your taste Superfly, but disco isn't exactly what I'm after.

The Braveheart Soundtrack is an excellent orchestral soundtrack. As for John Williams, try...

Star Wars Trilogy
Indiana Jones Trilogy
Saving Private Ryan
Jurrassic Park (agreed, very good ST)

Other great theatrical soundtracks are the new Lord of the Rings soundtracks. I think you'll enjoy the Two Towers especially.
