THE GREATEST FILM SCORES OF DMITRI TIOMKIN

London Symphony Orchestra / Richard Kaufman

LSO Live presents Dimitri Tiomkin’s greatest film scores, the first of a new occasional LSO Live series of the greatest film music composers of all time.

The LSO’s association with the film industry stretches all the way back to Arthur Bliss’s music for 'Things to Come', the first time an orchestra had recorded a movie soundtrack. Since then the LSO ha recorded music for major blockbusters, including 'Star Wars' and 'Harry Potter'.

Russian-born Tiomkin is one of the most highly regarded Hollywood film composers. A versatile composer who could create memorable scores for almost any story, Tiomkin received a staggering 22 Academy Award nominations, winning four awards. His most famous film scores include 'High Noon', 'The High and the Mighty', 'The Alamo', Hitchcock’s 'Dial ‘M’ for Murder' and the theme song for 'Rawhide'.

He was also a gifted songwriter, writing standards such as the theme from 'Wild is the Wind', and 'High Noon', which won a Oscar for ‘Best Song’ (‘Do Not Forsake Me’). Tiomkin’s strong ties with the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, resulted in the celebrated film scores for 'Shadow of a Doubt', 'Strangers on a Train', 'I Confess' and 'Dial ‘M’ for Murder'. Grammy Award winner Richard Kaufman has devoted much of his musical life to conducting and supervising music for film and television productions, as well as performing film and classical music in concert halls. He regularly conducts the Pacific Symphony and Chicago Symphony Orchestras and in 2012 he conducts the San Diego Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Atlanta Symphony Orchestras.

Concert reviews:

"Tiomkin’s music evokes his era: there’s little like it to put you straight back into 1950s America ... his [Kaufman’s] enthusiasm is virulently infectious to anyone around him ... a truly outstanding performance from London Voices" Bachtrack.com

"‘Do Not Forsake Me’ from High Noon ... was evocatively rendered by Andrew Playfoot ... Throughout, the LSO augmented by a jazz combo, played this music stylishly and enthusiastically" Seen and Heard International "Dimitri Tiomkin was one of the most accomplished, garlanded and best-loved film music composers ever to have worked in Hollywood ... a really superb concert ... The LSO is an ensemble of such top individuals and trombonist Katy Jones brought this same singing tone to the subsequent suite from The Old Man And The Sea. There was more fine playing from the leader and from assorted members of the percussion department" Framescourer
