Somewhere in Time: The Memorable Musical Theme by John Barry


Somewhere in Time is a 1980 romantic science fiction tragedy film directed by Jeannot Szwarc. It is a film adaptation of the 1975 novel Bid Time Return by Richard Matheson, who also wrote the screenplay. The film stars Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, Christopher Plummer, Teresa Wright, and Bill Erwin.

Reeve plays Richard Collier, a playwright who becomes smitten by a photograph of a young woman at the Grand Hotel. Through self-hypnosis, he travels back in time to the year 1912 to find love with actress Elise McKenna (portrayed by Seymour). But her manager William Fawcett Robinson (portrayed by Plummer) fears that romance will derail her career and resolves to stop him.

The film is known for its musical score composed by John Barry. The eighteenth variation of Sergei Rachmaninoff‘s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini also runs throughout the film.

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.
