DEBBIE WIESEMAN OBE
Wednesday 31st July 2019 at 2:30 pm
at the Amadeus Centre, 50 Shirland Road, Little Venice, London W9 2JA
First in a new series with Sir Sydney interviewing celebrated people about their experiences during illustrious careers in the world of cinema and television.
Throughout the past 20 years there can be few people who haven’t heard a theme from one of Debbie Wiseman’s films, television drama and royal occasions. Whether watching Stephen Fry bringing Oscar Wilde to life for the big screen, hearing the latest political commentary on a Sunday morning with Andrew Marr, or revelling in the Tudor world of Thomas Cromwell in Wolf Hall, Debbie has gifted us iconic themes of beauty and passion, love and laughter.
Debbie will play extracts of her music at the piano and introduce clips from some of her most celebrated film and television projects including Tom & Viv, Wolf Hall, Wilde, Land Girls, The Whale, Judge John Deed and A Poet in New York. The interview will also give insight into her work as Classic FM’s Composer in Residence; composing music for The Queen’s 90th Birthday celebration, her role as a conductor and her appearance during the BBC Proms as a music expert.
