I know this will be of interest to many here.

Tiomkin's music is rightly considered to be some of the finest written for film and a huge gala concert, with surrounding events, has been arranged by Dimi's widow, Olivia Tiomkin-Douglas next month at The Barbican with the London Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Richard Kaufman. Featuring two World Premieres and some other surprises that have yet to be announced.

Those familiar with Gerhardt's Lost Horizon: Classic Film Score album will already know some of the pieces being performed and this beautifully orchestrated music sounds really incredible in the concert hall.

Here's more information with links and at the bottom of the page you can listen to my interview with Kaufman about the concert and working with the LSO:

For subscribers of FSM Online, there'll be an opportunity to win tickets to the concert, after-show party and a copy of the new Guns of Navarone Blu-ray in the next couple of weeks.

Love your avatar, Ren! What a show :-o)

I should have amended the subject (Ricard / Jason / Mark, can you do this please?)

The concert was last year, but the CD presentation (and bonus download tracks) has just been released on the LSO Live label and the web chat via Google+ Hangout and You Tube about Tiomkin is next Tuesday from 7pm (BST). I hope you can join us.

Maglorfin, have a wonderful time! I know you will. That same concert will be presented in Londonderry next April, so I won't have to get on a plane to see the LSO perform Williams (for once!)

- Tim
