'At the movies' with Dirk Brossé
Philharmonie Zuidnederland conducted by Dirk Brossé - Theater aan het Vrijthof
Program Info: A celebration of recognition "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse." A phrase that is as inseparable from "The Godfather" as the star of Marlon Brando. The atmospheric music of Pietro Mascagni will immediately bring you back to Sicily. Much classical music became known through the cinema films in which it sounds. Like the Allegretto from Beethoven's Seventh Symphony in "The King's Speech". But much modern film music is also inspired by music by classical composers.
Conductor and (film!) Composer Dirk Brossé conducts classical masterpieces that are forever associated with famous film scenes. In addition, enjoy work by contemporary film composers such as Hans Zimmer, Nicola Piovani, Alan Silvestri and John Williams from the films "Pirates of the Caribbean" by "La Vita è Bella", "Forrest Gump", "ET" and many more. In short, a celebration of recognition!
