Since then, he has composed the scores to over 200 films, winning three Oscars in the process. As well as this, he has written songs for some of the biggest names in popular music, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Barbara Streisand.

Last night’s concert provided something of a sneak-preview of the upcoming Marguerite. The musical is directed by Jonathan Kent, and has a book by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg, whose previous collaborations include Les Misérables, Miss Saigon and Martin Guerre. Marguerite runs from 20 May to 1 November 2008 (previews from 7 May), the final production in the Haymarket's inaugural in-house season.
