St. Paul, Minn. — On this week's episode of Top Score, meet the three remaining composers on the "Maestros of Video Games" panel at PAX Prime in Seattle.

Last week, you learned about Oleksa Lozowchuk, Darren Korb and Martin O'Donnell.

This week, hear music from Jesper Kyd, Boris Salchow and Sascha Dikiciyan.

Jesper Kyd is most famous for his music in the Assassin's Creed series, as well as the Hitman series and Borderlands series.

Sascha Dikiciyan worked on Mass Effect 2, Dead Rising 3, and you'll hear him later this fall in The Long Dark.

I first heard Boris Salchow in the Resistance series of games. He's currently working on one of this fall's most anticipated new titles, Sunset Overdrive. One of my favorite soundtracks he wrote, however, is for a German film called Germany from Above.

You can learn more about Jesper, Boris and Sascha on Top Score from Classical MPR.

And don't forget to enter for a chance to win one of two CDs by Darren Korb:
