London Philharmonic Orchestra

The visiting London Philharmonic Orchestra presents a spectacular multimedia evening featuring Duncan Copp’s award-winning high definition films The Earth and The Planets. Breathtaking footage from NASA’s exploration of the solar system is projected on a giant screen and accompanied by evocative cosmically-inspired scores including The Planets by Holst and Strauss' epic tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra (the opening to 2001: A Space Odyssey). In this virtual trip into space music and science join forces for an audio-visual bombardment of the senses.

“The images in the movie, produced and ­directed by Duncan Copp, were often ­astonishing. ­Photographs from rovers and satellites, radar images and ­computer-generated ­graphics were combined to give the audience the impression of circling individual planets and sometimes ­flying over their awesomely barren landscapes”
