Renowned composer Geoffrey Burgon has died at the age of 69. An acclaimed classical writer he branched out into the world of TV themes and scored major success with his beautifully crafted work on Brideshead Revisited and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy which both landed him the prestigious Ivor Novello award. More recently he won BAFTA awards for The Forsyte Sage and Longtitude. In 2000 Geoffrey revisited his TV catalogue with new recordings with The Philharmonia Orchestra released by Silva Screen. All at the company extend their condolences to his family.
