Maurice Jarre - part of my music education
Composer Maurice Jarre has died in Los Angeles aged 84. His scores included Lawrence of Arabia, Passage to India and Doctor Zhivago. My parent's 1962 LP of the Oscar-winning soundtrack for Lawrence of Arabia was an integral part of my music education. The superbly crafted scores of Maurice Jarre, Malcolm Arnold and many others introduced classical music to generations of cinema goers. What is the 21st century version of this truly inclusive form of music education?
