Simon Fisher Turner

Simon Fisher Turner is renowned for his film soundtrack work which began in collaboration with Derek Jarman, for whom he scored many feature films, from Caravaggio (1986) through to Jarman’s final work Blue (1993). Caravaggio began a long relationship with the BFI, with Fisher Turner composing the score for restorations of three silent films, Un Chant D’Amour (dir. Jean Genet, 1950), The Great White Silence (dir. Herbert Ponting, 1924), and The Epic of Everest (dir. Captain John Noel, 1924), for which he won a prestigious Ivor Novello Award. His most recent work, A Quiet Corner in Time (2020), is a collaboration with the ceramist and author Edmund de Waal.
