New Year's Concert 2021 - An opulent film gala
Duisburger Philharmoniker conducted by Axel Kober - Philharmonie Mercatorhalle
Program Info: The New Year's Concert of the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra is an opulent film gala this time. The orchestra starts the new year with the great melodies from the Hollywood dream factory - rushing, glittering, full of energy! GMD Axel Kober , who otherwise brings the great stories of music theatre to the orchestra pit of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, also has a soft spot for film music. No wonder: great cinema epics like “The Lord of the Rings” or “Avengers” would not be conceivable without the “Ring of the Nibelung”. “Superman” is also basically a cinematic revenant of Wagner's “Siegfried”, and even Harry Potter, the apprentice sorcerer, seems to have climbed straight onto the screen from the romantic fairytale opera.
with music from Howard Shore, Alan Silvestri, John Williams and others.
