The screening of two classic films will be accompanied by a live music performance for: Sergei Prokofiev’s Ivan Grozny (Ivan the Terrible – 1945) and to celebrate his 70th birthday, John Barry’s Oscar-winning score from James Goldman’s 1968 film The Lion in Winter in which Timothy Dalton stars as France’s King Philip.
John Barry came from a popular-music background. His scores for the James Bond films – From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, The Man With The Golden Gun, Moonraker, Octopussy, A View To A Kill & The Living Daylights (in which Barry had a cameo) — made him a sought-after composer for action-adventure. He also won two Oscars (Best Song and Best Score) for Born Free in 1967. And composed for later films such as Midnight Cowboy, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves. He was trained in choral music by Dr. Francis Jackson, Minister of Music at York Minster. This training proved useful when he received the assignment for The Lion in Winter.
