Get to know the facts behind the finest scores from the 2000's, including Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings trilogy, Hans Zimmer's The Da Vinci Code and Dario Marinelli's Pride and Prejudice.
Although best remembered for a stunning Oscar-winning turn from Helen Mirren as Her Majesty the Queen, Stephen Frears' much-loved dramatisation of the immediate events following the death of Diana, Princess of Wales on 31 August 1997 also featured a beautiful score from Alexandre Desplat. Nominated for the 2006 Academy Award for Best Original Score and the BAFTA Award for Best Film Music, the score put Alexandre Desplat on the map and would pave the way for further success, particularly the final Harry Potter films.
