Creating Music for the Masses • Scottish Composer

Buxton Orr


The original plan for Orr was to become a doctor. However, he decided to give up medicine in 1952 and swapped to music. He first started to gain recognition for his work after the release of the movie Suddenly Last Summer in 1959. Ever sinc then, he dedicated himself to the craft of music composition.
