Please don't kill Alexandre Desplat, or keep him in a big jar in your basement.

Programme to include music from:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
The King's Speech
The Queen
Philomena
Argo
The Imitation Game
Twilight: New Moon
Fantastic Mr Fox
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Coco before Chanel

Alexandre Desplat conductor

From The King’s Speech to the final adventures of Harry Potter, the LSO celebrates the wonderfully immersive music of one of Hollywood’s most sought-after film composers with a selection of his favourite scores, introduced and conducted by Alexandre Desplat himself.

The LSO and Desplat have collaborated closely in recent years, recording scores for films such as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts I & II, Zero Dark Thirty, Philomena, Rise of the Guardians, The Queen, The Ides of March and The Monuments Men.

---------------------------------

I really hope Birth and Monuments Men get added to that list eventually (Hostage would be nice too).
I'll be gutted if he doesn't perform my two favourite scores by him frown

It's not a bad programme at all, quiet a few of my favourites there, but to be honest I could do without THE KING'S SPEECH. It's just not one of his most memorable scores, and I feel it's only there because of the success and popularity of the film.
However, didn't the early programme listing for the Patrick Doyle concert ended up being quiet different to the eventual programme? And of course, a few advertised pieces didn't end up being played at the David Arnold concert. It really would be a shame if Desplat's stunning MONUMENTS MEN score wasn't represented.

(Though I haven't yet decided if I'm actually going to go to this. There's been quiet a few expensive trips to London for concerts in the last year, I'm not rushing into another as if I do it's guaranteed that something more desirable will be announced immediately after!)
