Silva Screen Records presents
World Soundtrack Awards - Tribute To The Film Composer
Elmer Bernstein * James Newton Howard * Carter Burwell * Alberto Iglesias * Elliot Goldenthal * Gabriel Yared * Jóhann Jóhannsson * John Williams * Nicholas Britell * Mychael Danna * Alexandre Desplat * Patrick Doyle * Michael Giacchino * Angelo Badalamenti.
Supported by the Film Fest Gent’s World Soundtrack Awards, Tribute To The Film Composer is the sixth release in the WSA series on Silva Screen Records. The music is performed by the Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Dirk Brossé.
Every year, an outstanding film music composer is invited to present their work during the annual World Soundtrack Awards Gala & Concert and this year the spotlight is on past winners. The Academy is celebrating 20 years of the World Soundtrack Awards with an anniversary concert on 24th October and album devoted to all thirteen Awards winning composers.
Tribute To the Film Composer album highlights the variety of the composers’ output and it features exclusive premiere studio recordings. Some of the tracks are concert arrangements, adapted by the composer for a life beyond the film or TV score. Other tracks are new recordings of cues that have never been released on a soundtrack album or which were not even used in the film.
The album’s title is derived from the playful closing album track, John Williams’s 2002 homage to his peers. Lasting less than five minutes, the Tribute To The Film Composer piece skillfully weaves through 23 different film themes by various composers who were nearly all either acquaintances or very close friends of the legendary John Williams.
Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s online concert will be free for fans to watch and the organisers are hoping this will further widen the already International WSA fanbase.
Tribute To The Film Composer will be released on 23rd October in digital and CD formats.
Digital album: SILED1625

These are the nominees for the 20th anniversary edition of the World Soundtrack Awards!
The World Soundtrack Academy proudly presents this year's nominees for the renowned WSAwards. The wide range of selected composers includes our guest of honour Alexandre Desplat, Thomas Newman, Benjamin Wallfisch and John Williams. Moreover, last year's Television Composer of the Year, Hildur Guðnadóttir, is now nominated for the Film Composer of the Year Award. Meanwhile, the 2019 Film Composer of the Year, Nicholas Britell, has received a nomination for the WSAward for TV Composer of the Year for his Succession score. As this demonstrates the blurring boundaries between film, television and other audiovisual media, the World Soundtrack Awards will more than ever celebrate the art of composition for screen.
All nominees for the WSAward for TV Composer of the Year initially composed music for film. Previous WSA Film Composers of the Year, Nicholas Britell and Carter Burwell are now nominated for their work on the television series Succession and The Morning Show respectively. In the meantime, the duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who received an Oscar ten years ago for scoring The Social Network by David Fincher, join the competition along with Lorne Balfe, four-time nominee at the BAFTA Awards and Nathan Barr.

Furthermore, Belgian composer Hannes De Maeyer is nominated in two different categories for his work on Torpedo: Best Original Score for a Belgian Production and the Public Choice Award. In the Public Choice category, the winner of last year, John Powell is again nominated for his work on The Call of Wild. The other scores that are nominated are Klaus by Alfonso G. Aguilar, Blizzard of Souls by Lolita Ritmanis and Kruimeltje by Joep Sporck.
