Alan Silvestri: Forrest Gump

My readers probably know by now that I love film music. In October 2019, I “celebrated” the 70th birthday of film composer Gabriel Yared (The English Patient [1996], Betty Blue [1986]), so now I want to highlight that today Alan Silvestri, an American film composer known for his collaborations with director Robert Zemeckis, is 70 years old too. Given this, I think it is perfect time to share one of this composer’s greatest scores for the film Forrest Gump [1994] that starred Tom Hanks.

  1. Ah I can actually see the feather floating down in the wind as I listen to this, a truly magical moment of cinema and the background music really makes it great. I totally forgot about this and I will find more of Alan Silvestri’s other musical scores. The English Patient, another great one that you mention I need to revisit this one too, thank you for reminding me of this great music
