VIDEO: 'CARLITO'S WAY' GRAND CENTRAL THEME
PATRICK DOYLE THEME PERFORMED BY THE BRUSSELS PHILHARMONIC @ WORLD SOUNDTRACK AWARDS IN OCT
On October 24, 2015, Patrick Doyle received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 15th World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent. The Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Dirk Brossé, performed a selection of Doyle's work, including the "Grand Central" theme he composed for Brian De Palma's Carlito's Way (watch/listen to the performance in the video above).

On choosing Doyle for the award, artistic director of Film Fest Gent, Patrick Duynslaegher, had said, "This year’s focus of the 42nd Film Fest Gent will be on British Cinema, so Patrick Doyle was the ideal candidate to grant the Lifetime Achievement Award to, during the 15th World Soundtrack Awards. Anyone who can still recount hearing Doyle’s score for Kenneth Branagh’s debut film Henry V in 1989 for the first time, knows that back then a great composer was born. Ever since, Patrick Doyle has been a close collaborator with Mr. Branagh and always gave a deeper musical layer to all of his films including the Shakespeare adaptations (Henry V, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and Love’s Labour’s Lost). The immensely versatile Doyle enriched the films by Robert Altman, Ang Lee, Chen Kaige, Alfonso Cuarón and Brian De Palma (one of his greatest scores was for Carlito’s Way) with his alternating tragic, noble, triumphant and romantic compositions. With his work on blockbusters such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire he certainly proved his talent working on spectacular Hollywood action and adventure films."

Patrick Doyle expressed himself about the Grand Central sequence and De palma s reacting to his score in this video just see it at 

https://youtu.be/d5F

At 26'40" just watch the making of the score from Patrick Doyle's Voice. 

The whole truth..  I think De palma had already said somewhere that the score at the beginning of the movie  was too elegiac perhaps for him it was too much the kind of Gustav Mahler type in Death in Venice and was revealing too much things to the audience because he was trying to hide through distorted camera work the bleak destiny of Carlito.

Thanks for your interest in my favorite director !!
