    But what's about some neoromantic composers? "Good bye, Lenin" won't be the same without such magician Yann Tiersen soundtrack!

    Jerry Goldsmith by far is my favorite. I always consider him to be on the same level as John Williams but being a bit more adventurous and experimental in his work compared to Williams.

    I also would like to add Basil Poledouris as an honorouble mention. The Conan The BArbarian soundtrack is bliss.

    Mark Isham for his atmospheric film scores for “The Public Eye” and “The Moderns”. I’ve played them many times over the years as standalone works. I believe that some of these film composers are among the most talented in the world for their skill and productivity. I consider the truly great ones with a high degree of respect.

    Some reasonable options in the poll, but some "modern/contemporary" who are no longer with us! Is there another poll looking at composers working now on films since, say, 2000? Here's a few who've worked on top Hollywood movies in the past few years as a starting point.

    Justin Hurwitz
    Steven Price
    Nicholas Britell
    Max Richter
    Jonny Greenwood
