The movie production 'Out of Africa' starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford is no doubt one of the most beautiful and also one of the most frequently awarded film of the past decade. The music for the soundtrack was composed by John Barry. The attractive theme serves to accentuate the magnificent scenic views of the overwhelming African landscape. John Barry is widely known through his work as a composer of soundtracks. He has already added a vast amount of film scores for the James Bond movies to his name: 'Goldfinger', 'Octopussy', 'Diamonds areforever', 'Moonraker' and 'From Russia with love'.

  • April 10, 2009 De Meij at his best

    To be included in our Classic Film concert, this adaptation of the main theme from Out of Africa gloriously represents what Symphonic Band should be all about. De Meij is at his best, approaching scoring as a minimalist and the difficulty of performance is in musicianship, performance control and dynamic...

    obedience. A true crowd pleaser, not to be missed! (Another great Doyle/De Meij film work to be tried, Henry V.)
