Film music was never just about Hollywood – and from Lawrence of Arabia to James Bond, Brief Encounter to Four Weddings and a Funeral, British cinema has created its own legends, to utterly unforgettable music. As part of our Isle of Noises season, film music maestro Anthony Weeden introduces a century of great British film scores. The elegance of Murder on the Orient Express, the visionary pre-war sci-fi of Things to Come; the sheer emotion of the Love theme from Romeo and Juliet: these are the soundtracks of all our lives: and you’ll never hear them played with more energy or flair.
