Composer Robert Cobert has scored dozens of film and television productions, spanning television game shows (“Password,” “The $100,000 Pyramid”) to the monumental miniseries “The Winds of War and War” and “Remembrance.” Cobert received a Grammy nomination for “Quentin’s Theme” from “Dark Shadows” as well as the coveted BMI Special Citation of Achievement for over one million broadcast performances. Cobert’s original TV soundtrack to “Dark Shadows” went Top 20 on the Billboard Album chart and remains in the Top 10 bestselling TV soundtracks of all time.
