Composer to honor Anthony Minghella

Gabriel Yared dedicating Ghent fest concert to director

Composer Gabriel Yared will conduct a concert dedicated to the memory of director Anthony Minghella at the Ghent International Film Festival on Oct. 15.

Yared worked with Minghella on "The English Patient," "Cold Mountain" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley;" he won an Oscar for his "Patient" score and was nominated for his work on the other two films.

The tribute concert will feature suites that Yared composed for those films performed by a chamber orchestra and solo soprano.

The Ghent International Film Festival, in its 35th edition, focuses on film music; other events at this year's festival will include performances by Kadril, Tuur Florizoone, Dario Marianelli and Angelo Badalamenti.
