‹ Back to What's On Orchestra of Opera North: From Hollywood with Love

25 Jan - 4 Feb 2018

Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2017-18

Tobias Ringborg, Conductor
Ian Buckle, Piano 
Andrew Collins, Presenter

Andrew Collins (Classic FM presenter and Film Editor at Radio Times) guides us through the world of Hollywood film music with help from Tobias Ringborg, Ian Buckle and the Orchestra of Opera North. 

With classic scores from Korngold, Williams, and Rota and lesser known gems from Addinsell, Provost and Webb this is a concert where you're bound to know the tunes even if the names are unfamiliar. 

Cementing the links between Classic FM, the Kirklees Concert Season and Opera North, there is no better way to celebrate the breadth of music that movies have inspired.

Korngold The Adventures of Robin Hood
Rózsa Thief of Bagdad: Eternal love
Steiner Gone with the Wind   
Provost Intermezzo: Souvenir de Vienne    
Webb Notorious 
Herrmann North by Northwest
Chaplin Limelight
Korngold Sea Hawk
Korngold Kings Row
John Williams Star Wars
John Williams Schindler’s List: Theme
Addinsell Dangerous Moonlight: Warsaw Concerto  
Rota The Godfather
John Williams Superman

There was no doubting the conductor's living and breathing the music. His enthusiasm was infectious; the orchestra's vivid response... was not the least of the evening's special qualities
