Of course there is 7 months more to go but what this does indicate is film composing in the past and now seems to be basically a middle age thing.However we must realize if you are young and have not really gotten yet a reputation as a constant film composer one might not list you, as one. YET?

Funny - I was only talking about Geoffrey Burgon the other day - nice to see his name here - he lived only a few miles from me in his later years, and though I had no idea until some time afterwards I had the pleasure of playing him one of his own compositions (Nunc Dimitis, arranged for Solo voice, Trumpet and Piano) at a concert a few years ago.

Actually, Stewart's a really busy guy. He recently completed an arrangement for a live performance of Ben Hur and he wrote a concerto for percussion & orchestra. In 2012 his fusion band with bass god Stanley Clarke (of Return To Forever) toured Europe.
