Scott of the Antarctic: Film with Live Orchestra PG
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrew Manze - Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Program Info: Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending Vaughan Williams Scott of the Antarctic
“To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield”. The story of Captain Scott’s tragic voyage to the South Pole is one of the greatest of all adventures, and the 1948 film Scott of the Antarctic is a true classic of British cinema, shot in spectacular full-colour. Naturally, they asked Vaughan Williams to write the score and now, in his 150th anniversary year, we get to hear his extraordinary music in full-colour too, as the Orchestra, Choir, soprano soloist and Andrew Manze accompany the film, live in concert. The score later formed the basis of his Sinfonia antartica (Symphony No.7).
