Interview: John Lunn

On today’s very special episode, we have a conversation with the Emmy-award winning composer John Lunn (Downton Abbey, Grantchester, The White Queen). Both a classically-trained composer and innovative producer, John brings a unique blend of musical depth and contemporary daring to his work in TV and Film. In addition to his beloved work on Downton Abbey, he is also known for his scores to several BBC adaptations of Charles Dickens’ classics, including Little Dorrit, which was nominated for both BAFTA and Emmy awards and the Mystery of Edwin Drood which was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in 2013. Also in 2013, John composed the score to The White Queen, based on the series of books by Phillipa Gregory and this year has composed the score to its’ sequel series The White Princess, airing now in the US, Sunday evenings on STARZ. In addition to his great work as a composer, John is a truly sweet person who has much to say on music and its storytelling power. Enjoy!
