With his vibrant musical scores, Alan Silvestri added impact, emotion and momentum to dozens of hit feature films in a career that spanned more than 30 years. Following his journeyman years composing music for a number of television series in the late-1970s, Silvestri began his movie career proper with "Romancing the Stone" (1984), the first in a series of ongoing collaborations with director-producer Robert Zemeckis. Teaming with the filmmaker on each of his consecutive projects from there on out, including the smash hits "Back to the Future" (1985) and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988), the prolific composer also lent his talents to other directors on films like "The Abyss" (1989) and "The Bodyguard" (1992). Silvestri continued to add resonance to more Zemeckis projects, including a trio of memorable Tom Hanks vehicles - "Forrest Gump" (1994), "Cast Away" (2000) and "The Polar Express" (2004), the latter of which earned him a Grammy Award. Revered for his sweeping scores of heroic proportions, it came as little surprise when the composer was tapped to provide pulse-pounding soundtracks to the superhero blockbusters "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011) and "The Avengers" (2012). Known as one of the fastest, hardest working and most congenial composer-conductors in Hollywood, it was no wonder Silvestri had long held the position of "go-to guy" when it came to providing the appropriate score for movies of virtually every genre.
