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.
