A Celebration of Disney Classics - featuring ALAN MENKEN
The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and many more - Alan Menken lend the Disney's dream worlds their unmistakable sound.
The trained Broadway composer later introduced many of his Disney scores to the musical stage with great success. The song »A Whole New World« from Aladdin is among the most successful songs in film history and topped the billboard charts in the USA for 23 weeks. Just like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin as well returned to the big screen as an opulent live-action movie featuring additionally composed songs. Soon to follow is The Little Mermaid, which is currently in pre-production.
Alan Menken is a record-breaker in terms of prizes and awards: he is the only living creative in Hollywood with a total of eight Oscars to his name. Furthermore, he has been decorated with eleven Grammys, a Tony, seven Golden Globes and countless other prestigious awards.
This year Menken adds a new accolade to his long list of distinctions: At the film music gala »Hollywood in Vienna«, Alan Menken will receive the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award 2022 by the City of Vienna.
“I am truly honoured to be receiving the prestigious Max Steiner Award this year,” says Alan Menken. “And I feel humbled to have my name and work associated with the brilliant and legendary Max Steiner himself."
We are delighted to celebrate the magic of the Disney universe with our guest of honour and many top-class interpreters in the festive setting of the Wiener Konzerthaus. Emmy award-winner Michael Kosarin, Alan Menken's long-standing music director, will conduct the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.
