Sir Anthony Hopkins presents 'Composer', a collection of pieces written and composed by the man himself – Available for download
On July 23rd 2011, world-renowned actor Sir Anthony joined the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on stage at Birmingham Symphony Hall to introduce a performance of his original compositions and scores from some of his best-known films. ‘Composer’ is the live recording of Sir Anthony’s original works from that evening, including pieces composed for two films that he not only scored but also directed and starred in (‘Slipstream’ and ‘August’).
Sir Anthony Hopkins says: “I’m very pleased I’ve found an extra string to my fiddle. For years I mused and dreamt about turning my scribbled thoughts and bursts of melody into pieces of work to be performed by a full orchestra and to see this dream turn into a reality through working with CBSO and now Classic FM is something I treasure very much.”
As a child, Sir Anthony dreamt of “one day, perhaps, one day” becoming a composer. With the release of ‘Anthony Hopkins – Composer’, both his and his mother’s dream is now cemented for all to enjoy.
