Richard E Grant told about his love for Mozart above all other composers :
“The speed of his mind, his invention and the breadth of his talent is, I think, unmatched.”
Just before he was due to take the stage to host the special concert at Westminster’s, he also told Classic FM about the role that music plays in movies: “I know first-hand how utterly transforming and helpful music is. And equally, if it’s wrong, you know that immediately as well… it adds a three-dimensional quality to a film that you can’t see, but you feel it.”
Grant also extolled the virtues of Nino Rota’s score for The Godfather (his favourite trilogy of all time), and the work that Patrick Doyle did on his own directorial effort, Wah-Wah, from 2005.
