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.
|Rózsa||Thief of Bagdad: Eternal love|
|Steiner||Gone with the Wind|
|Provost||Intermezzo: Souvenir de Vienne|
|Herrmann||North by Northwest|
|John Williams||Star Wars|
|John Williams||Schindler’s List: Theme|
|Addinsell||Dangerous Moonlight: Warsaw Concerto|
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
