96 year old Laurence Rosenthal will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award this coming October in Ghent.
Apart from the cool aspect in giving this fine composer some deserving recognition, it will (presumably) result in a CD of the tribute concert, which will be conducted by Dirk Brosse.
Recently, these WSA concert releases have included suites from previously unavailable scores.
Anyone going to this event?

Nicola Piovani will also receive a LAA at the event.

Yeah, read it awhile back. I wonder if he's coming in person? That would take a lot out of a man that age.

I used to be a WSA regular, but haven't been there in many years. I think 2015 was the last time. Mostly health and money problems. I do live vicariously through my many friends there, though, who attend it annually. Looking forward to a Rosenthal compilation.

I think the WSA site indicates that Rosenthal will attend the event.
He must have genes like Williams.
I've never attended a WSA Ghent event, but was a regular at MOSMA Malaga, pre-pandemic.
But rising flight and accomodation costs, coupled with MOSMA's ridiculously 11th hour announcements have scuttled that somewhat (even now, with the event about 5 weeks away, they haven't revealed any attendees or performers).

Ghent is very tempting this year... but kind of difficult to make it there unfortunately frown

With someone as super nice and HIGHLY underrated as Piovani especially I wish I could make it. So far I've been there only once and loved it... excellent event and actually fan-friendly.

It's nice to see Rosenthal receive some recognition. He has a style that's unmistakable once you've heard several of his scores. I recently picked up Intrada's re-release of BECKET. He richly deserved his Academy Award nomination for that one.

Hopefully John Powell will present him with it, as one Jason Bourne composer honouring the O.G.
