In belated sad news, I must report that composer and conductor Harry Rabinowitz passed away last month at the age of 100.
Rabinowitz was well known for conducting film scores. He conducted the scores for over 60 films, including Chariots of Fire, The Remains of the Day, The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain. He also composed the score for several television films including I, Claudius (1976) and The Frost Report (1966). Mr. Rabinowitz was a talented piano player and he practiced every day up until his death.
R.I.P Mr. Rabinowitz
