RIP - Dimitri Tchamouroff, award winning composer of music for film and television.
1964 - 2014
“Dimo was quite simply the best composer I worked with. Prompt, courteous, enthusiastic, amenable but above all musically so often so spot on. Of all the films I have made, my proudest is The Boy who Plays on the Buddhas of Bamiyan - and that film started with three tracks of music that Dimo wrote before I'd even got on the plane - 3 tracks that ended up as signature pieces, 3 tracks that I listened to again and again while in Afghanistan, while filming.
Few moments made me as proud as when his name was called out by the Royal Television Society as composer of the year for that film's soundtrack. No-one could match him. He will be sorely missed by so many film-makers like Sally and myself but his music will be heard for decades and decades and continue to bring joy to untold millions”
"In its unflashy, understated way, this was simply the most beautiful music the judges heard. The perfect accompaniment to a beautiful programme"
Royal Television Society
"The gorgeous color landscape photography is a major plus, as are Phil Reynolds' deft editing and Dimitri Tchamouroff's haunting score, which makes use of indigenous instruments"
Independent on Sunday
"An outstanding documentary"
The Sunday Times
"A lovely, lyrical film"
"A powerful and extraordinary film"
"Thanks again for all your hard work. Everyone loves the music, I can't imagine the film without it"
Alan McKay, Channel 4
"The music you have composed is fantastic - very diverse and rich in colour."
Sarah Liversedge, BBC
"Thank you very much...your music was the life and soul of the film and was always the starting point for each sequence we edited"
