Today Radio Riel honors the passing of one of the most respected and prolific composers of music for films, Maurice Jarre. Mr. Jarre passed away last week, on March 29 at the age of 84. He composed the scores of many Hollywood films, starting in the 1950s, with his last work completed in 2001. He was nominated for several Academy Awards over the years and won for his scores for “Doctor Zhivago”, “Lawrence of Arabia” and “A Passage to India”.

Our program today features many of his works, as well as movie music from other composers, such as John Williams, Klaus Badelt and Henry Mancini.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
