John Barry - Hollywood in Vienna

Hollywood In Vienna - John Barry - October 14, 2009

John Barry in Vienna

World-renowned film composer John Barry will be honored on October 14th, 2009 by the City of Vienna at the film music gala concert „HOLLYWOOD IN VIENNA" with the newly established „Max Steiner Life Achievement Award", in remembrance of the Viennese film music pioneer Max Steiner.

Few composers of the past half-century have enjoyed as much popular success or worldwide influence as John Barry, born in York, England, in 1933. The winner of five Oscars, four Grammys and other honors ranging from America’s Golden Globe to Britain’s Anthony Asquith Award, has written some of the most memorable movie music of our time: Born Free, Midnight Cowboy, Goldfinger, Out of Africa, Dances With Wolves, Somewhere in Time and dozens of other scores.

Barry will be the first film composer to receive the Max Steiner Award and he considers this prize as one of the biggest honors of his life. He will accept the award in person and will take over the baton himself to conduct highlights of his film music ("Goldfinger") with the prestigious Radio-Symphony Orchestra Vienna in the Vienna concert hall.

Main conductor of the „HOLLYWOOD IN VIENNA" Gala Concert will be Nicholas Dodd. He has already worked with John Barry in several concerts, including a "Tribute to John Barry" evening with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London´s Royal Albert Hall in 2007. Furthermore, Nicholas Dodd served as conductor and arranger of the past Bond scores by David Arnold, such as "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace".

The "Hollywood in Vienna" concert program will include the most famous film scores by John Barry, such as a "James Bond Suite", "Out of Africa", "Dances with Wolves" and "Born Free". Apart from Barry´s compositions Dodd will also present music by Max Steiner, John Williams, David Arnold and Ennio Morricone in the first part of the gala. The concert will be broadcast via several European radio stations.

On October 9th & 10th 2009 John Barry, as well as Bruce Broughton and Austrian born Hollywood composer Harald Kloser will also take part in an International Film Music Symposium at the Vienna University for Music and Performing Arts.
