**If you’re reading this on a mobile phone in central London head over to Leicester Square as they’re showing Quantum of Solace tonight (Sun 21 June) at the Prince Charles Cinema at 8.30pm, £11**
Listen again (from 12min 30sec) to David Arnold talking about meeting David Walliams, writing the theme tune for Little Britain, the changing processes of composing music and his upcoming concert in Nottingham.
The intro, from the presenter Jo Davies nicely encapsulates his work: “Next Sunday night on the 28th of June you can see David Arnold live in concert. Now ‘David Arnold’ might not be a name that you immediately recognise but I’m sure you will immediately recognise his work, because he is an award-winning composer and he’ll be performing songs and scores from his career which includes soundtracks from five different Bond films like Casino Royale, The World is Not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies. He’s written the score for Independence Day, he was heavily involved in London 2012, Made in Dagenham the musical and also TV shows like Sherlock, and Little Britain.”
David Arnold is performing his music at a concert next Sunday evening (7.30pm, 28th June) at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and David McAlmont as special guest on vocals (Arnold also sings). He’s also doing a concert on the Friday night (7.30pm, 26th June) at Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
You should go if you’re able – and I can back this up with evidence 🙂 Look at all these tweets from people who attended his recent London conference at the Barbican with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. A very happy audience.
