The name’s Barry… John Barry. But this legendary British film composer was much more than just the man who gave a generation of James Bond themes style, swing and sex-appeal. From the wide open spaces of Out of Africa to the soaring emotions of Born Free and Dances with Wolves, tonight we celebrate some of the greatest movie music ever written – and savour again the sheer thrill of Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, Diamonds Are Forever, You Only Live Twice and many more. Expect silken strings, sassy brass and tunes that sound like a million dollars. Relax and enjoy ... we have all the time in the world! Pre-concert talk: Nicholas Dodd interviewed by Samuel Hudson, Director of Music at Blackburn Cathedral.
