After starting out as member of Kenneth Branagh’s repertory company, Scotsman Patrick Doyle is one of today’s most in-demand film composers.
A graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama where he studied piano and singing, Patrick Doyle joined Kenneth Branagh’s Renaissance Theatre Company in 1987 as an actor, composer and musical director. Their work on the movie Henry V was the start of a long time collaboration in films. In October 1997, Doyle was diagnosed with leukemia but made a full recovery to become one of Hollywood's top movie composers. He has worked with a host of acclaimed directors including Ang Lee and Brian de Palma. Doyle has also written a series of symphonic works for the concert hall including Impressions of America, released to mark his 60th birthday in April 2013. But which of Patrick Doyle’s almost 50 scores are the ten best?
