Trained as a pianist, gifted as a violinist, Benjamin Frankel made an early living in London playing in dance bands and working as an arranger. He began his career in film music in 1934 and, from 1957, when he moved to Switzerland, was able to devote his attention to his own compositions.

Frankel’s film scores include some of the best-known British films of the time: The Seventh Veil, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Man in the White Suit, The End of the Affair, The Night of the Iguana and Battle of the Bulge.

Orchestral and Chamber Music

Frankel’s concert music includes eight symphonies, a Violin Concerto, a Viola Concerto, and a Serenata concertante for violin, cello, piano and orchestra. His chamber music includes five string quartets, a Piano Quartet and a Clarinet Quintet, and two sonatas for unaccompanied violin.
