VANGELIS  

(b 1943 )

Greek composer Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou (born 1943), better known as “Vangelis”, won an Academy Award for his film score of Hugh Hudson's Chariots of Fire (1981). The music spawned a hit single and the image of the athletes training on the beach at dawn accompanied by the obsessive music exemplified the film’s story and became a target for many tributes and parodies. Oddly, for a film set in 1924, the original soundtrack was entirely electronic though it was later arranged for orchestra.
