Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to Patrick Doyle.
Patrick Doyle (1953- present) is a British composer, born just outside Glasgow. Doyle is known for his work scoring such critically acclaimed films as Henry V, Sense and Sensibility, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Life and Music
- Doyle benefited from a musical upbringing before studying music at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.
- He joined Kenneth Branagh's Renaissance Theatre Company as an actor, composer and musical director in 1987 and wrote music for many of their renaissance productions. However, it wasn't until he was asked to write the score for Branagh's film of Henry V that he began a career in film scoring.
Patrick Doyle has been nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards.
