Celebrating its 10th anniversary The World Soundtrack Academy will present Barry with a Lifetime Achievement Award, their most prestigious honor. Due to an unforseen medical condition John Barry regrettably cannot be present to accept his award.
John Barry became immortal thanks to his soundtracks for no less than 11 Bond films. The Bond themes became one of the most well-known of all times. But John Barry is not only known for his compositions, he is also famous for the perfect way in which he integrated these songs. Goldfinger
is therefore a perfect example. It secured him a place in the history of the Bond films as THE Bond composer.
The accomplished English born composer has penned scores for over 100 films and was honored with an Academy Award for The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa
and Dances with Wolves
, two Academy Awards for Born Free
as well as nominations for Mary Queen of Scots
