There are few concert experiences that can match a live orchestral performance of film music. This concert showcases works by two giants of 20th-century film music, Ennio Morricone and John Williams.
The late Ennio Morricone was Italy’s most famous cinematic composer. Starting in 1961, he wrote music for over 400 films and television shows, winning three Grammy Awards and three Golden Globe awards for his efforts. The first half of this programme of film music focuses on a selection of Morricone’s best, including The Untouchables, Cinema Paradiso, and Once Upon a Time in the West.
John Williams is a living legend, holder of 25 Grammy Awards and five Oscars. Only Walt Disney received more Oscar nominations than Williams has. Williams’ music influenced the genre for decades, with scores such as those represented on the second half of this programme: Superman, Star Wars, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
A must-see event that no film enthusiast should miss!
