Film scores by Alex North to be reviewed in Tehran
Art and Experience: The Niavaran Cultural Center in Tehran will be holding a session on Thursday to review film scores composed by renowned American composer Alex North.
Musician Nasrollah Davudi is scheduled to attend the session, during which the audience will listen to soundtracks by North.
North composed soundtracks for numerous acclaimed movies, including “A Streetcar Named Desire”, “Viva Zapata!”, “Spartacus”, “Cleopatra” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”.
He shunned publicity and Hollywood careerism. But he nevertheless accumulated 15 Oscar nominations and a Lifetime Achievement Oscar for his work in the film industry. He is the first and, thus far, only composer to have received this honor for his music.
