David Hirschfelder

David started his professional career in the 1980s as a keyboard player for Pyramid and The Little River Band. However, by his late twenties, he found himself in demand as a writer of advertising jingles and radio themes. This work subsequently led him to compose the score for the 1987 film Suzy's Story, and he has never looked back.

David Hirschfelder is recognised globally as one of Australia’s most distinguished screen-composers, having earned Oscar nominations for Scott Hicks' "Shine" and Shekhar Kapur’s “Elizabeth”.

He is also the winner of two BAFTA (British Academy) awards for "Strictly Ballroom" and "Elizabeth".

David Hirschfelder is one of Australia's most outstanding and successful composers and has been honoured with distinguished awards from several nations.
