Rebroadcast: Interview With Composer Marvin Hamlisch

Acclaimed composer and pops conductor Marvin Hamlisch died yesterday at the age of 68.  He joined Diane Rehm in June 2004 to talk about his career — which spanned film, television, theater, and recordings.  

He received twelve Academy award nominations for films ranging from "Sophie’s Choice" to "The Way We Were" and "The Sting."  He won four Emmys and four Grammys.  His sole Tony award came for his score to the musical, "A Chorus Line."

Marvin Hamlisch was also principal pops conductor for several orchestras over the years.

Tonight at 9 pm, we revisit Diane Rehm’s 2004 conversation with Marvin Hamlisch.
