Patrick Doyle Tapped for Lifetime Achievement at the World Soundtrack Awards

Film composer Patrick Doyle, best known for his work with the actor/filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, as well as his recent scores for Disney’s “Cinderella” and Pixar’s “Brave,” will be presented with the World Soundtrack Lifetime Achievement Award at the 15th annual World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent, Belgium.

Doyle follows in the footsteps of such esteemed movie maestros as John Barry, Angelo Badalamenti, Maurice Jarre and Elmer Bernstein.

The World Soundtrack Awards, taking place this year on Oct. 24, is the culminating event of Film Fest Ghent.

“Anyone who can still recount hearing Doyle’s score for Kenneth Branagh’s debut film ‘Henry V’ in 1989 for the first time, knows that back then a great composer was born,” said Patrick Duynslaegher, artistic director of Film Fest Ghent, in a statement. “The immensely versatile Doyle enriched the films by Robert Altman, Ang Lee, Chen Kaige, Alfonso Cuarón and Brian DePalma with his alternating tragic, noble, triumphant and romantic compositions,” Duynslaegher added.

The Scotland-born composer’s credits also include “Donnie Brasco,” “Gosford Park,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
