Tomorrow, composer Lalo Schifrin, now 86, will be presented with an honorary Oscar. The Argentinian composer, best known for his Mission Impossible theme has written scores for more than 100 films, including Bullitt, Cool Hand Luke, The Cincinnati Kid and Dirty Harry. Schifrin has made just one visit to Ireland in 2012 on the occasion of his 80th Birthday when he conducted a very memorable concert with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Aedín features excerpts this afternoon from that memorable concert as well as a pre-concert chat she had with the composer. Also this afternoon we mark the birthday of director Martin Scorsese with music from two of his films Taxi Driver and The Wolf of Wall Street and hit songs from Cabaret and Chicago.
