Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, launched the programme and ‘Trinity Access 21’ patron, David Puttnam and his son Sacha Puttnam, also performed a spirited selection of songs from their acclaimed ‘Puttnam plays Puttnam’ repertoire. In this concert, David reflected on his illustrious career from stage while his son, Sacha performed the famous themes from his game-changing films. Sacha is an accomplished film music composer who has re-imagined the arrangements of these scores on a newly album entitled ‘Puttnam plays Puttnam’. Excerpts from the album can be heard on Sacha’s website, www.sachaputtnam.com.
