Alley Cat composer dies at 95main
The Danish composer Bent Fabricius-Bjerre has passed away at a great age.
In 1962 his instrumental composition ‘Omkring et flygel’ was retitled ‘Alley Cat’ and sold a million copies, reaching #2 in the US charts and #1 in Australia.
It’s instantly recognisable.
The theme was used in several films, among them Duets (2000), starring Gwyneth Paltrow, and Imaginary Heroes (2004), starring Sigourney Weaver.
Bent renamed himself Fabric.
