Trail of the Pink Panther op.316a (1982)

Musical direction on a scene featuring part of Tchaikovsky's Overture 1812
First Performance: Wembley theatre


Following my involvement with Pink Panther Strikes Again and Victor/Victoria Blake Edwards rang one day to ask if I could organise and conduct a spoof on the 1812 in which the brass section would get blown into the sky by the firing of the cannon. Stunt men were used as apparent brass players along with my orchestra The Sinfonia of London and it was duly filmed at the Wimbledon Theatre.
