      One of the most decorated and respected composers of his generation, John Barry excelled at sweeping scores which added to the unique power of cinema, transporting viewers into the heart of the filmgoing experience. Rising to fame as an influential arranger and composer on the James Bond series, Barry composed 11 soundtracks, creating the soundscape of the Bond universe, which remained instantly recognizable for generations of filmgoers. He went on to achieve even greater cinematic immortality, creating the music and scores for such classics as "Born Free" (1966), "The Lion in Winter" (1968), "Midnight Cowboy" (1969) and "Somewhere in Time" (1980), but he was best remembered for his achingly romantic scores that helped turn "Out of Africa" (1985) and "Dances with Wolves" into such magical, evocative experiences. Over his 50-year career, Barry won a boatload of awards, including five Oscars, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, a Grammy and a Saturn Award, as well as a slew of nominations. Incredibly talented and well respected, Barry helped fuse the connection between modern moviemaking and music, and influenced generations of filmmakers and filmgoers who wept, laughed and loved to his inimitable musical landscapes. When he died in 2011, he had achieved a brilliant professional legacy as well as his own immortality through a life devoted to art and music.
