The Golden Age of Movie Music
From the 1930s to the 1980s, symphonic orchestral music formed the emotional background of many of the great movies. Film composers such as Bernard Herrmann, Miklós Rózsa, Maurice Jarre and John Williams became household names through their evocative music and lush orchestrations. They created soundscapes that were the emotional equal of great classical music featuring instantly iconic themes that have thrilled cinemagoers for years.
Conductor and film music specialist Nicholas Buc will take you on a tour of some of the great film scores of this era. Tunes you may have heard only through the crackly speakers of your old TV will be heard in all their majestic full-frequency glory in the QPAC Concert Hall. A great concert for lovers of film, nostalgia and orchestral music alike.
