Neil Argo, house composer and orchestrator for Aaron Spelling productions DynastyBeverly Hills90210 and Wild America, has died of heart disease. He was 71.


  • Hilary says:

    Lest there be any doubt, the theme tune of Dynasty was composed by Bill Conti. I guess the opulent orchestration is the work of Neil Argo.
    One of the comments on YouTube describes it as a “masterpiece” :https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wdTOxekUUwE
    Michael Tippett enjoyed this soap opera.

    • Marc Parella says:

      Thank you for pointing out that Bill Conti wrote the Dynasty Theme along with other great TV and Film scores.

  • Rob says:

    He died in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    Also the home and place of death of another Dynasty composer, Angela Morley.
