The Music of Ennio Morricone
Czech Symphony Orchestra conducted by Franz Bader - Alte Oper, Großer Saal
Program Info: Films like "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", "Cinema Paradiso" or "The Hateful Eight" also owe their worldwide success to the unique soundtracks by Ennio Morricone. Many of his works have long had cult status. Directors like Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino counted on his masterful compositions. His plaintive "Song of Death", which is played in a distinctive way by the harmonica in the western of the same name, is the key to understanding the plot and one of the most famous film music compositions in the film. A melody that everyone knows. Morricone was nominated for an Oscar five times, received it in 2007 for his life's work and in 2013 for the best film music for "The Hateful Eight". He also received two Grammy Awards, six BAFTA awards and three Golden Globe awards.
What can otherwise only be heard on the big screen is now coming to the big stage live for the first time. Under the musical direction of Franz Bader, the Czech Symphony Orchestra, a choir of 40 singers and the soloist Franz Bader interpret the best-known melodies by the exceptional composer. A concert evening full of monumental melodies, well-known leitmotifs and epic sound collages.
