The Top Ten Scores of 2015

Time to start counting down the best in cinema from 2015, leading up to my list of the top ten films, starting out with my ten best scores of the year.

Movie scores are one of my favorite things, and mostly what I listen to when listening to music, so this is always one of the highlights of the year for me. 2015 was a strong year for scores, featuring new work from old masters and some great new work from previously unknown up-and-comers. My list contains some of both. What did I miss? Which scores would make your own list?
