BAFTA’s Conversations with Screen Composers is wonderful. The fantastic Tommy Pearson does the interviewing (I always think they should get someone in just to interview him one day as he seems like an interesting and knowledgeable chap himself) and we get to hear from different screen composers talking about their work. There are film / TV clips and quite often a bit of musical accompaniment.
The events take place in the Elgar room upstairs at the beautiful Royal Albert Hall: Patrick Doyle will be interviewed on Monday 13 October and David Arnold on Tuesday 2 December.
More about the launch of the new series of interviews – at time of writing the page lists the second event as happening on 3 December but the RAH tickets page below says it’s the 2nd.

David Arnold has also mentioned he’ll be doing more concerts of his music next year, the one this year at the Royal Festival Hall on 6 July was brilliant.
For film music concerts around the world have a look at this amazing Movies in Concert page (and if you know of a concert not listed you can add it yourself, there’s a form there).
