Lalo Schifrin, composer behind themes for Mission: Impossible, Mannix and Bullitt, was named the recipient of this year’s Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award for his outstanding contributions to film music. The award was presented to the BMI composer at the historic Wiener Konzerthaus in Vienna on October 22, 2012. After the announcement, the Vienna Radio-Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of fellow BMI composer David Newman, performed a selection of Schifrin’s compositions during the annual Hollywood in Vienna Concert, which celebrates classic and current masterpieces of film music. Schifrin, who is a five-time Grammy Award winner and six-time Oscar nominee, has written more than 100 film and television scores. His résumé includes work for Cool Hand Luke, The Cincinnati Kid, The Amityville Horror, Enter the Dragon, four Dirty Harry films and more recently Abominable and the Rush Hour trilogy.
