The film composer @DavidGArnold did a show on @SohoRadio yesterday – listen again if you missed it :)

Yesterday David Arnold sat in for Pete Paphides’ show on Soho Radio. You can ‘listen again’ to his entertaining session, which included songs from Shirley Bassey, Sufjan Stevens and Stevie Wonder, on Mixcloud below. The track listing (please let me know of errors) is below, don’t scroll down if you want to avoid spoilers. You’ll have to scroll down a fair distance anyway as for some reason the Mixcloud player takes up a lot of space on the blog page.

…but imagine having a two hour radio show and not telling people about the two massive and amazing film music concerts you have coming up this year in London and Prague 😉 To remedy that here’s some info about them first.

  • Sunday 5 June 2016 – David Arnold: Live in Concert, Rudolfinum, Prague with Film Music Prague
  • Thursday 22 September 2016 – Independence Day LIVE (#ID4Live), Royal Albert Hall, London with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra (conducted by Nicholas Dodd) performing David’s score live to the screened film*, and featuring a pre-film talk by composer David Arnold*you hear all the dialogue & special effects as normal but thrillingly the music is performed live

Press Play and enjoy. You can also listen to David Arnold’s show on Mixcloud directly.
