Mark Kermode- Midnight Cowboy_John Barry's Theme on Chromatic Harmonica

Visit the website and watch the video, find out more about this event at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/markkermode/. Read more about the BBC, and their programs and programming.  I enjoy listening to the classical music they broadcast on Classical Music 3, and many of their shows.

This is a great tribute to the music composed by John Barry, one of  the paramount musicians of our time. Please read more about the life and music of  John Barry (1933-2011) at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Barry_(composer), as many of his compositions have become intrinsic part of out human experience in artistic accomplishment.

This is a perfect opportunity to join the broadcasting of the concert dedicated to life and music of John Barry.
I enjoy all his compositions, but one that come in mind each time on his tune play in my mind is the themes from ‘Somewhere In Time’, my “Immortal Beloved” of the art of cinematography and a must read novel, for the human attempt to gain access to knowledge beyond the realm of the tangible.
