Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004)

Sunday, 12 April 2015 14:10

Jerry Goldmsith during one of his last concerts in London.We regret to announce the death of Jerry Goldsmith, one of the finest film music composers of the modern era. In a career which in some ways mirrored that of John Barry, he began composing for TV and small films before rising rapidly to fame in the early to mid-sixties, with scores like 'Freud', 'A Patch of Blue' & 'The Sand Pebbles'. In fact, he received Oscar nominations for all three and another in the sixties for 'Planet of the Apes' From then onwards his career and reputation was secure and he scored an astonishing variety of films during the next 30 years or so, from 'Patton' to 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' and from 'Chinatown' to 'The Boys From Brazil'.

He received 17 Oscar nominations but won only once, for 'The Omen' in 1977. He enjoyed giving concerts of his music and performed all over the world, notably in London, where he built up a strong relationship with The London Symphony Orchestra.

RIP Jerry. Your music lives on.

The Music of John Barry

Saturday 10 November 7.30pm
The Bridgewater Hall

Manchester, M2 3WS

John Barry created some of the most memorable and recognisable film scores of the 20th century, such as Midnight Cowboy, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, Zulu and of course much of the music from the James Bond series; his versatility and originality were peerless. His death in 2011 deprived cinema of a true musical great. This concert pays tribute to his life and music with a carefully selected programme, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, who collaborated closely with the composer on his later films. Nicholas Dodd is regarded as one of the leading conductors and orchestrators of Hollywood film music and is a noted expert on, and performer of John Barry’s music. In fact, every James Bond movie from the last 10 years bears his signature.
