George Fenton (born October 19, 1950) is a British composer best known for his work writing film scores and music for television, although he also writes music for the theater. He was born George Richard Ian Howe in London and attended St Edwards School in Oxford.
Initially Fenton worked as an actor, getting an early break with a part in Alan Bennetts play Forty Years On. He had some minor success appearing in the film Private Road, the soap opera Emmerdale Farm and in Alan Bennetts first television play A Day Out directed by Stephen Frears and broadcast in 1972.
Often asked to play a musical instrument in productions, Fenton decided on an early career switch to composition. In 1974 he got his first major commission, composing and musical directing for Peter Gills theatre production of Twelfth Night by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. This led to further work in British theatre, composing for productions at: The National Theatre, The Royal Exchange Theatre, The Royal Court, The Riverside Studios, and further compositions for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
