About the event

Celebrated film composer Deborah Mollison sees the role of a composer as a commentator in society. In this concert, she’ll introduce her music including acclaimed title East is East with her personal comments.

The following selection of scores by Deborah Mollison span her career over twenty years of work in film and television. Each piece embodies the heart of the musical style that evolved for each project and as such illustrates a diversity of genre that has become well known in the work of Deborah Mollison.

As an orchestral composer from an early age, Mollison does not shy away from large instrumental forces and in this array of film cues we hear both epic and microscopic forms of composition, an emotional journey that we hope will capture your senses.

  • Opening Titles from ‘The Boys of Sunset Ridge’
  • ‘The Irish Empire’
  • ‘East is East’
