Joe Dante on Jerry Goldsmith
Posted By: Tim Burden 2/4/2021 - 10:00 PM

Joe Dante in Conversation with Tim Burden, Robert Townson and Marshall Harvey about Jerry Goldsmith

 

Late last year I had the pleasure of hosting a live virtual event with director Joe Dante about his work with Jerry Goldsmith. A key contributor with whom he had such a successful collaboration with. Indeed, Joe would often site the phrase: "Jerry will save it!" during interviews. Soundtrack producer Robert Townson and editor Marshall H

50 Years of Elmer Bernstein: Peter Bernstein and John Landis host Concerts in Dublin & London
Posted By: Tim Burden 6/10/2017 - 10:00 PM

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

Peter Bernstein conducts 2 very special concerts of his father's music this month in Dublin and London, featuring director John Landis. Appropriate when you think of the unique history both of these cities have with EB's music. Many scores were recorded in Dublin and London during the 70s, 80s and 90s, with Elmer especially enjoying the lush surroundings of the Emerald Isle whilst owning a house there.

The Magic & Majesty of Alexandre Desplat
Posted By: Tim Burden 11/30/2014 - 10:00 PM

One of the perks of working in the cinema industry is the opportunity to hear multiple new film scores each week. Some good, some bad, some inaudible. Girl with a Pearl Earring was the first time I heard Alexandre Desplat's music and, like many others, I was suitably impressed and looked forward to hearing more from this composer.

Desplat's output didn't disappoint and he continues to deliver the best that music has to offer for film. It is well time

"It only took 20 years." - David Arnold LIVE
Posted By: Tim Burden 7/2/2014 - 10:00 PM

David Arnold makes his solo orchestral concert debut with some of London's best musicians, singers and actors this Sunday 6th July, 8pm at Southbank's Royal Festival Hall.

I spoke with David during final preparations for this exciting event, one which he hopes will be the first of many. Expect plenty of surprises on the night, especially the opening number which I guarantee will blow your socks off! David didn't want to reveal too much as that would be no fun

"He gave me a mango!" - Remembering Empire of the Sun with Mike Matessino
Posted By: Tim Burden 6/27/2014 - 10:00 PM

The first time I watched Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun I was utterly spellbound. It's a highly spiritual journey and quite overwhelming in many ways. Thanks, in no small part, to the music of John Williams. I don't wax rhapsodic about every Spielberg and Williams collaboration (honest!), but this one does demand a fair amount of gushing in my mind. Something which very few do when talking about this entry on the resume of both gentlemen.

Marching into March: Film Music LIVE
Posted By: Tim Burden 2/26/2014 - 10:00 PM

As we spring into March (see what I did there?) this weekend, there are a number of film music concerts all across the world that deserve your attention. Does this warrant a devoted blog post? Well, yes. Over the years i've noticed many film music enthusiasts write about their dream film music concert, wishing this or that to be performed. However, do these same people actually attend concerts? Orchestras are finding it harder and harder to afford putting film music concerts on these d

Much Ado About Patrick Doyle
Posted By: Tim Burden 12/14/2013 - 10:00 PM

The music of Patrick Doyle is anything but nonsense or silly, like Shakespeare's "Hey Nonny Nonny" phrase suggests. It is, however, playful at times. Much like the man himself. Most of Patrick's character is in his music, so naturally this makes for an endlessly entertaining platform for a concert experience.

Remembering and Celebrating Michael Kamen (featuring a concert report by Dirk Wickenden)
Posted By: Tim Burden 11/17/2013 - 10:00 PM

Anniversaries are often celebrated and whilst some may find it odd to celebrate the anniversary of a death, it's really a good opportunity to reflect on and most importantly celebrate the legacy of the person concerned.

Michael Kamen always deserves to be celebrated and remembered, thankfully this is the case with continued new releases of his music by the soundtrack labels (a very special one is on the horizon!) and better still, a recent concert of Kamen's music perfor

Scoring for a Silent Movie Classic: Patrick Doyle talks IT up.
Posted By: Tim Burden 9/29/2013 - 10:00 PM
The 10th Syracuse Film Festival takes place on Thursday night in the state of New York. For this anniversary year, Patrick Doyle has been commissioned to write a new score for the classic 1927 silent film starring Clara Bow, IT.

He spoke with me about the challenge and what those attending on Thursday night can expect to hear.
