Posted on April 8, 2011 by Dan Goldwasser
Last summer, Trevor Rabin was at the Sony Scoring Stage to record his score for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Directed by Jon Turteltaub, the film marked the third time that Rabin and Turteltaub have worked together, the previous two films being the National Treasure films.

With Don Harper conducting a 76-piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony, the music – orchestrated by Tom Calderaro, Gordon Goodwin and Dave Reynolds – was big and thematic, and heavy on the brass.
