Attended the Friday 5th October concert at the Royal Albert Hall and can report it was superb, with the RPO in fine form and some brilliant feature parts on Trumpet and Saxaphone. The scores featured were perfect for the night, and the packed audience appreciated every one. Both guest singers were on great form, belting out the classic Bond theme songs, and Tommy Pearson as Compere was on his usual top form - full of facts and trivia about John Barry. He did a couple of interviews with Nic Raine on the rostrum - and he told some great JB anecdotes. The music of Barry, however, dominated the preoceedings and left me sad that this great man has left us. Highlights for me were Midnight Cowboy, Born Free, and - the first time I'd heard them performed live - King Rat and The Quillier Memorandum. Both brilliant. Also, hearing JB's arrangement of the James Bond Theme performed live was fantastic - the power of the music made me shiver!

Altogether a wonderful night in front of a knowledgeable audience who lapped it up. I've been to a lot of the RPO's Film Score concerts and this was up there with the best of them.

Glad it was good. I wanted to go but couldn't make it in the end.
