April 21, 2017 by norman lebrecht
A prolific pianist, Gordon Langford composed and arranged extensively for brass bands – as well as for many films, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman II, First Great Train Robbery, Clash of the Titans and Return to Oz.
He also wrote the test-card music for BBC Television.
His works were handsomely recorded by Chandos.
Gordon died this week at his home in Devon.
