Michael Kamen's music for Mr. Holland's Opus bears more weight and relevance to its accompanying motion picture than your rank-and-file Hollywood score. The tale of a high-school music teacher who juggles everyday life with his grander creative pursuits, culminating in his three-decades-in-the-making "An American Symphony," its central themes double as the Holland character's own compositions, serving not only the film's emotional aspirations, but its narrative demands as well. Kamen draws liberally from classical antecedents, incorporating elements of Beethoven's "7th Symphony" and Bach's "Concerto for Three Harpsichords in C."
