Who is the world's greatest-ever film composer?

Well... duh. It's John Williams, obviously.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be celebrating his movie music with an evening of tunes from 'Star Wars', 'Indiana Jones', 'E.T.', 'Harry Potter', 'Jurassic Park', 'Schindler's List' and more.

I guarantee that after you've been to this concert you will spend the next week watching some of the movies on the telly.

The evening will be presented by Tommy Pearson.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) was founded by Thomas Beecham in 1946. Subsequent principal conductors have included the great André Previn and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
