Interesting, I stumbled upon him today around Soho. He was accompanied by some tall mysterious young woman - sister, wife or lover? He's quite short in person, btw.

Never has been there a recipient LESS deserving.

And I can say that with authority without knowing a single one of the other recipients. wink

This needs put in a context.

The classical music industry in the UK is suffering as a result of diminishing beams on seats and low sales of music. There's a tendency to highlight 'crossover' music, including film scores in these awards.

Now, we're alas no longer in the days of the great orchestral scores, but the idea is to hook new audiences, and that's what this is about. It's a strategy that invokes much criticism in some quarters.

So it's a double-edged scenario. On one hand, yes, it introduces new younger audiences, by ASSOCIATING this kind of music with classical in the hope of cross-fertilization. That helps Golden Age fans perhaps in the long run too. BUT, it may not benefit the reputation of film-music for exclusively concert-music devotees who don't know the bigger repertoire of the greats.

You should all really be discussing the strategy.

I think the Classical Brits, who already have lifetime achievement awards, should initiate a category for 'posthumous unsung composers of quality', to keep the past in the picture. Especially these days. It would benefit everyone.

Hang on, the Going for Gold theme was by Hans Zimmer!

This is being repeated on some channel at the moment. Terrible theme tune.
