Prague Proms: The Best of John Williams
Czech National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Steven Mercurio - Municipal House, Smetana Hall
Program Info: Blockbusters like Star Wars, Jaws or Indiana Jones would certainly not be so successful without the absolutely fascinating musical accompaniment by American John Williams. Stunning melodic invention, captivating rhythm and rich, colorful instrumentation are the hallmarks of his music. His grasp of the film music genre is undoubtedly a major inspiration for other great creators such as Hans Zimmer or Danny Elfman. The Czech National Symphony Orchestra can proudly call itself a "specialist" in Williams' music. Proof of this are the dozens of film performances with live symphonic music as part of the Symphonic Cinema project held throughout Europe, culminating in a twice-sold-out screening of Jurassic Park in London's Royal Albert Hall.Czech listeners then demand and enthusiastically applaud the performance of Williams' songs at Hollywood Night concerts.
