Composers Who Inspire Me

Different composers inspire me on different days for different reasons but here are my top ten in no particular order. (I'll do film composers for this one. I feel like classical composers should have their own category.)
  1. Ennio Morricone
  2. John Powell
  3. James Newton Howard
  4. Thomas Newman
  5. Hans Zimmer
  6. John Barry
  7. Jerry Goldsmith
  8. John Williams
  9. James Horner
  10. Alexandre Desplat
