I am excited to be conducting the concert debut of my theme for Formula 1 racing and many of my film scores such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fast and Furious franchise, Iron Man 3, Now You See Me, Thor: The Dark World, The Mummy and many more. The concert will also feature suites from my television and gaming scores including Yellowstone, Star Trek Enterprise, and Assassin’s Creed Black Flag.
I am fortunate to be joined on stage by so many incredible musicians and soloists that will bring the music to life. I want to bring the audience along for an epic journey into fantasy, romance, science-fiction, drama, modern film score, classical, rock electronic and big band jazz music. I am so delighted that the concert will be held at the historic and beautiful Royal Festival Hall.”
