"Poll idea - composers"
 
   Here's an idea for a future poll. If you were head of a ballet company and could commission any living composer to create a ballet score (ideally one who hasn't done so before) who would you choose?

I think Danny Elfman would be a great choice. (If you don't know him he's a film composer who works with Tim Burton a lot - he did Edward Scissorhands and Batman among others.)

No doubts as to this one. Philip Feeney. I loved his scores for Cinderella and Hunchback of Notre Dame (I happen to be playing that now), and I'm looking forward to hearing his score for Streetcar Named Desire in Nottingham next month.

   Philip Feaney also did the score for Dracula. I think it is very good and very creepy. It also sounds good to dance to. I use it for frightening the grandchildren.

   Well, I don't know how well he'd do in a poll, but for me it would have to be Indian composer A R Rahman.
He's made some wonderfully atmospheric scores for films like Lagaan and Earth, and his is the sort of music that it's impossible not to move to or be moved by.
In fact i've got the whole ballet in my head - just 20 mins or so long - lets not be too ambitious - but I can see the colour of set and costumes and the lighting effects I want...Can I choose my own dancers too ?
Oh well, perhaps in my next life....better get on with my paperwork..
