With the Olympics done and dusted, it's time to turn our attention to other sporting events: namely, the new football season, starting this Friday. But, being Classic FM, we couldn't resist a little delve into the archives to see which composers and musicians throughout history have been inspired by football. Whether they were ardent supporters of particular clubs or just loved the beautiful game, we've put them into a handy list for you.
Composer Michael Nyman was such a fan of Queen's Park Rangers that he wrote an entire piece for them, entitled 'The Final Score'. It accompanied a film of the same name, and is basically a collection of QPR-related images set to Nyman's exciting music. He also wrote two more footie-related pieces, 'After Extra Time' and 'Memorial'.
