Main Title and Calvera by Elmer Bernstein from the album: The Magnificent Seven Motion Picture Soundtrack


Elmer Bernstein - “Main Title and Calvera”

“I’ve learned in 50 years never to trust a script because the only thing that counts is the movie. I’ve seen great scripts ruined and I’ve seen scripts that were not so great realized in great ways. So I trust only the movie. When I look at the movie the first thing I ask myself is, “What is the music supposed to do here? If we’re going to have music here, what is it supposed to be doing?” Music is basically an emotional art. I’m asking the filmmaker to consult and tell me what is it that we want the audience to feel. That’s what music is really about.”
