The Tenerife International Film Music Festival (FIMUCITÉ), which will take place from June 27 to July 2, sponsored by Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, Canary Islands Government and Santa Cruz and La Laguna City Councils, will offer one of the most anticipated concerts for film music fans: the first appointment of the Spanish audience with the Academy Awarded composer Stephen Warbeck, winner for “Shakespeare in Love” (1998). It will be on June 29 at the Leal Theater in La Laguna at 21.00.
The repertoire of the composer will also include the world premiere of the concert suites of the scores for the films “Un Balcon Sur la Mer”, “There Will Be Dragons”, and “Polisse”, this last one awarded with the Jury Prize in the last Cannes Film Festival. Warbeck will go on stage accompanied by his band, formed by the clarinetist and sax Sarah Homer, Dario Rosetti-Bonell (electric and acoustic guitars); Nick Cooper (cello), and Steve Watts, Rob Millett and Paul Clarvis, bass, percussion and drums, respectively.
The concert will round off with the pieces composed for “Charlotte Gray”, “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” and the mentioned “Shakespeare in Love”, as well as some surprises that Warbeck will dedicate specifically to his fans during the performance.
After eight years of working as a composer and performer for the stage, Stephen began writing music for film and television. Since the early 1980’s, he has built up a considerable filmography. As well as writing music for more than forty television projects, (for which he has received five BAFTA nominations), he has scored many feature films and numerous radio plays.
