Conhecia mal a obra dele, mas tenho pena.
O «Out of Africa» é um dos meus filmes preferidos, sendo a banda sonora de uma grande beleza.

@Margarida: a seguir ao Ennio Morricone (que tive o prazer de escutar ainda em Lisboa, no anfiteatro Keil do Amaral), John Barry era o meu favorito. Talvez conhecas melhor do que julgas ;-) das bandas sonoras dos filmes do James Bond, entre outros igualmente conhecidos. :-) Beijinhos.

John Barry foi e sempre será um grande profissional, que agradou aos ouvidos de muitos com suas músicas.

Falo isso do fundo do meu coração, já que uma das músicas que mais gosto e o tema do filme "Em Algum Lugar do Passado" (Somewhere in Time, original name, que foi composto por ele.

Contudo, uma pessoa como essa permanecerá imortal, já que suas obras serão sempre lembradas.

Hi Sandra,
His music was wonderful! I remember sitting in the cinema with a friend seeing Out of Africa, and my friend was so touched by the music - all her emotions came out.
Sandra, with your history background, could you have look at this blog:
Maybe you know the answer to the last picture? Such beautiful tapestries!
Fijn weekend en houd je roer recht in de wind! That is een expression that comes from boating: no matter how much storm or wind keep your boat straight! De wind blaast nog steeds heel hard over ons dak.
