Initially engaged to compose the "temp track" score for Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Paul Englishby was subsequently asked to compose the film's complete original score.
This followed his composing the original scores for Debbie Isitt's Confetti and Andrew O'Connor's Magicians; the theme music score for the series of "Ten Minutes Older" short films by such directors as Bernardo Bertolucci, Mike Figgis, and Jim Jarmusch; and orchestrating the original music for such films as Julian Jarrold's Becoming Jane (scored by Adrian Johnston), and John Madden's Proof and Michael Radford's Flawless (both scored by Stephen Warbeck).
Mr. Englishby has scored stage plays for The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and the Royal National Theatre, among other troupes; and such West End shows as the revival of Bedroom Farce. His music was most recently heard in the RSC hit Merry Wives, staring Dame Judi Dench.
As orchestrator and pianist, he has been in concert halls with some of the U.K.'s leading ensembles, such as The London Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, London Musici, Tallis Chamber Choir, Fibonacci Sequence, and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
While still a student, Mr. Englishby was commissioned by the BBC and the Arts Council to devise and compose a short music film. The result was Pictures on the Piano. He has continued to work with the BBC and other production companies on radio and television music and film scores.
