The Bees Knees (The EMI Years 1957-1964) (3CD)

Saturday, 19 February 2011 12:59

Following hard on the heels of the Adam Faith box-set news, EMI has announced a John Barry box-set. That's the good news. The not so good news is that this appears to be an exact reissue of the three volumes of "The EMI Years" from the early 90s. So no additional tracks and no new remastering.  It does look to be cheap, though!

The Bridgewater Hall - Music of John Barry November 2018

The Music of John Barry

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.
