English-born composer Stephen Endelman began playing the clarinet at the age of seven, studied at The Purcell School of Young Musicians and London's Guildhall School of Music and Dram, and graduated from the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. By the age of 18, Endelman had composed the music for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Eugene O'Neill's "A Moon for the Misbegotten", and shortly thereafter moved to New York in 1992 to pursue and develop a career in film music. He made his film music debut in 1993, assisting composer Butch Barbella on Robert De Niro's "A Bronx Tale", and composed his first solo score, "Household Saints", later in the same year. Since then Endelman has written music for over 35 movies.
He has worked with directors Irwin Winkler, David O. Russell, John Irvin, Nancy Savoca, Lesli Linka Glatter, Anthony Drazan, John Duigan and Bruce Beresford. "Special Thanks To Roy London" is his second collaboration with Christopher Monger -- Stephen also did the emotive and much loved score for "The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain" Other popular titles include "Tom and Huck" (1995), "Flirting With Disaster" (1996), "Evelyn"(2002) and the recent "De-Lovely" (2004), for which he adapted and arranged a number of songs by Cole Porter -- and for which he was nominated for a Grammy.
