OSCAR WINNER STEPHEN WARBECK RETURNS TO DART MUSIC FESTIVAL FOR A DMF FOUNDATION FUNDED WORKSHOP AT DARTMOUTH ACADEMY.
We are delighted to welcome back to this year’s Festival Stephen Warbeck.
Stephen, who has composed film scores for Billy Elliot, Charlotte Gray, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Mrs Brown and many more, will be doing a workshop with the students of The Dartmouth Academy on Friday.
The Workshop is being totally funded by the Dart Music Festival Foundation, which was created to help local musicians.
Prior to the event the students will make some short films, without music, and during the workshop the music will be created out of the students’ ideas, with help and guidance from Stephen and his ensemble. The pieces composed will be interspersed with the films for a performance by the students, Stephen and his ensemble in The Flavel the following day.
This will be followed in the evening by ‘An Audience With Stephen Warbeck’ when he will be playing and talking about his work as one of the best known film composers working in Britain today. Probably best known for his score for Shakespeare in Love, for which he won an Academy Award, he has also written extensively for theatre, including productions at the Royal Court Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.
Stephen has written scores for more than forty films and in 2005 composed his first ballet score. Last year Stephen won a Bafta award for his music for Richard Eyre’s The Hollow Crown and earlier this year he won two prizes at the Tehran Film Festival for his score for Doomsday.
The programme for the concert will include themes from several of Stephen’s scores, and he will also be talking about his work. He’s invited along some very special musicians to join him this evening – full details in the DMF programme or on our website.
