Aedín marks the 93rd birthday of Angela Lansbury with music from a selection of her memorable roles in Sweeney Todd, Beauty and the Beast, Mame, Death on the Nile and Murder, She Wrote, including clips from the public interview Aedín conducted with Lansbury as part of the Dublin Film Festival in 2016. Favourite scores too from The Remains of the Day, The Shape of Water, Jane Eyre, There Will Be Blood and E.T.
With Halloween just around the corner, Aedín includes the creepy, eerie scores from Psycho and Bram Stoker’s Dracula this afternoon as well as the extraordinary 2015 film ‘The Childhood of a Leader’ in which Scott Walker’s big, brash and bold soundtrack really makes a statement. On a cheerier note, hit songs from Annie, Gypsy, Camelot, La Vie en Rose, A Little Night Music and Hairspray.
You can listen again here to Aedín's special guests interviews with 'Coco' director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, composer Michael Giacchino, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Angela Lansbery and composer, writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, responsible for the Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton and the songs of Moana. And check out video footage below of Aedín's recent interview with Star Wars legend Mark Hamill.
