Launched to coincide with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's John Barry concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, this new CD celebrates the wonderful motion-picture themes written by Britain's leading film score composer, in what would have been his 80th birthday year. The CD focuses on the many, varied soundtracks which Barry wrote outside of the James Bond series, and features 18 main themes and musical excerpts from key moments in the composer's 50 year career, spanning from Zulu (1964) to his final film score Enigma (2001), as well as the theme for the iconic 1970s television series the Persuaders. Highlights include many of the movies for which his music won prestigious awards - Born Free (two Academy Awards), Out of Africa (Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Grammy Award), Dances with Wolves (Academy Award, Grammy Award) and Midnight Cowboy (Grammy Award) - plus Chaplin, King Kong, Mary, Queen of Scots, Indecent Proposal, Somewhere in Time, the Ipcress File and many more.
