Maurice Jarre, one of the most prolific film music composers in the 20th century, can very much be the guy who the past generation can trace every single tune they find themselves humming unintentionally, to quote The New York Times: "[He was] among the most sought-after composers in the movie industry." One doesn 't get that much attention unless they wholeheartedly deserve it, at least back then. Despite Jarre mainly composing for concert works, he 's mostly known for his film scores.
