Live Scores Film Composers

John Barry

John Barry's soundtracks have changed forever the music world. He composed the music for Born Free, Dances with Wolves, Out of Africa, Frances, Body Heat and many many more films. But he will be forever connected to the early James Bond soundtracks, the ones that made the franchise a worldwide event, therefore when he made appearances conducting his scores he usually includes a James Bond theme or a medley.
Here is a list of some of those appearances in video, audio or printed format.
