It is scarcely credible that Carl Davis, who remains so extraordinarily prolific and energetic, turns 80 on 28th October. He celebrates the day conducting the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in a birthday concert. Then on Saturday 29th his life and work is celebrated by Matthew Sweet and the BBC Philharmonic on BBC Radio 3’s Sound of Cinema – including an interview with Carl and performances of some of his most gorgeous film themes.
