Hidalgo

“The music is emotional and expansive, redolent of western wide open spaces and grand vistas. It demonstrates the range of this talented young composer.”
Ontario Arts Review

“The film is a Western, so the broad melody and prominent strings and horns are conventions familiar to anyone who has listened to film music. It is, however, exactly what the scene required. […] I think Maxime Goulet is a major talent. He should have a long and successful career writing music for films or TV.”
Composer’s Notebook

Hidalgo is a feature film by John Fusco based on the legend of the American distance rider Frank Hopkins and his mustang Hidalgo. This music for the final sequence was re-composed by Maxime Goulet during the 2009 ASCAP Film Music Workshop, in Los Angeles, and recorded by the Hollywood Studio Symphony.
