Enjoy the increbile John Barry in concert. The famous James Bond composer and Academy Award winner will be in Belgium in October 2010.

On Thursday October 21, 2010 five-time Oscar winner, John Barry’s music will be performed live in concert at the Ghent International Film Festival.
This unique, one-night-only event will be held at 8.30 pm at ‘t Kuipke Concert Hall in Ghent. Ticket prices range from €25 to €45.

The 80 members Brussels Philharmonic will be performing selections from many of Barry’s classic scores including Goldfinger, Mary Queen of Scots, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves and Midnight Cowboy, conducted by Nicholas Dodd. As always, the concert will be accompanied by a video presentation of film clips.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary The World Soundtrack Academy will present Barry with a Lifetime Achievement Award, their most prestigious honor.

John Barry became immortal thanks to his soundtracks for no less than 11 James Bond films. The Bond themes became one of the most well-known of all times. But John Barry is not only known for his compositions, he is also famous for the perfect way in which he integrated these songs. Goldfinger is therefore a perfect example. It secured him a place in the history of the Bond films as THE Bond composer.

The accomplished English born composer has penned scores for over 100 films and was honored with an Academy Award for The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves, two Academy Awards for Born Free as well as nominations for Mary Queen of Scots and Chaplin.

With the John Barry concert, the Ghent Film Festival will be continuing its tradition of showcasing memorable, award-winning film music in the form of live concerts. Previous editions featured Ennio Morricone, Maurice Jarre, Elmer Bernstein, Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore and Alexandre Desplat among others.

In its 37th year the Ghent International Film Festival will run from October 12th – October 23rd with the World Soundtrack Awards being presented on the final night.

(Many thanks to our wonderful friend Gary J. Firuta for the head's up on this event!)
