Hard to believe that someone can put together a "celebration of film music" without any works by Herrman, Goldsmith, Korngold, any of the Newmans, Morricone, or even any of the younger bright lights such as Elfman or Giacchino.

If they must have works by contemporary British composers, can't they get George Fenton or Rachel Portman or John Powell or David Arnold, all of whom have written much better stuff for orchestra than what Debbie Wiseman and Christopher Gunning conducted?

And I can't imagine how anyone involved thought it would be a good idea to arrange 'Chariots of Fire' for orchestra -- it just didn't work at all the way they played it.

I'm afraid this concert just made me miss Jerry Goldsmith's annual concerts with the LSO even more.
