Neoclassical: Hans Zimmer and Vangelis
String quartet "Melodion" - Moscow International Performing Arts Center


Program Info:
The program includes soundtracks by Vangelis and Zimmerman

Top compositions by world-famous soundtrack authors Vangelis and Zimmerman, which have captivated millions of listeners, will be performed by the Melodion string quartet, a team of excellent ensemble players, laureates of prestigious international competitions.

Without the music of Vangelis and Zimmerman, it is impossible to imagine many masterpieces of world cinema. Evangelos Odysseas Papathanasiou, better known as Vangelis , is one of the leaders of modern electronic music, the winner of the Oscar and Grammy awards for the music for the film Chariots of Fire. His track became the only Greek song in history to top the US national chart. No less popular was his music for the film Blade Runner. The signature sound of Vangelis is a mystery of sounds, in which both "heroism" and lyrics make a strong impression on the mass audience. In 2002, Vangelis became the author of the anthem of the World Cup in Japan and Korea, and in 2004 he wrote the music for the famous film "Alexander" by Oliver Stone. Along with other melodies, the audience will hear the gentle composition La Petite Fille De La Mer and the music from the film "1492: The Conquest of Paradise" and other compositions.

The program of the Melodion quartet will include the brightest compositions of the German film composer Hans Florian Zimmer, also known for his music for computer games. Academy Award winner, two-time Golden Globe Award winner, three-time Grammy Award winner, Zimmerman has composed scores for Rain Man, The Lion King, The Prince of Egypt, Gladiator, Angels & Demons , "Dune", "Pirates of the Caribbean". The world hits of Vangelis and Zimmerman performed by "Melodion" have a bewitching effect on the listeners, they are full of energy and genuine drive.
