John barry the lion in winter original motion picture soundtrack - Barry John: the greatest Lion of them all - Telegraph


The movies and music were in John Barry's blood. He spent his early years working in cinemas in the north of England, owned by his father. Barry's mother was a talented pianist who had abandoned her dream to be a concert artist. The young John wanted to join the family business and become a projectionist, but the combination of film and music made a deep impression on him. He began performing during his National Service in Cyprus, having learned to play the trumpet.

He received many awards for his work, including five Academy Awards ; two for Born Free , and one each for The Lion in Winter (for which he also won the first BAFTA Award for Best Film Music ), Dances with Wolves and Out of Africa (both of which also won him Grammy Awards ). He also received ten Golden Globe Award nominations, winning once for Best Original Score for Out of Africa in 1986. Barry completed his last film score, Enigma , in 2001 and recorded the successful album Eternal Echoes the same year. He then concentrated chiefly on live performances and co-wrote the music to the musical Brighton Rock in 2004 alongside Don Black . In 2001 Barry became a Fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors , and in 2005 he was made a Fellow of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts . Barry was married four times and had four children. He moved to the United States in 1975 and lived there for the remainder of his life until his death in 2011.
