All of the music community was saddened last night to hear legendary film composer, John Barry, had passed away. A composer of over one hundred film scores, John Barry was perhaps most famous for all of his work on the James Bond series of films composing many of the earlier Bond films and arranging the Monty Norman theme to the way we recognize it best today. The four-time Oscar winner was also famous for his glorious Dances With Wolves score as well as The Lion In Winter. There is no doubt that Barry’s contribution to the film music lexicon is indisputable and will be hailed as one of the all-time greats in the world of film music and conducting.

The LA Times has a nice piece with musical examples. I encourage all of you to check it out!
