‘If it weren’t for the movies’, multi-Oscar winning composer John Williams commented recently, ‘nobody would be able to write this kind of music any more.’ By which he meant the spectacular, colourful, evocative and defiantly ‘now’-feeling film scores written since the emergence of full-colour pictures and penetrating stereo sound. From Williams’s own supercharged soundscape for Star Wars to the high-jinks chases and jokes of John Powell’s music for Wallace and Gromit’s caper Chicken Run, this concert will unleash the power of the film score in all its orchestral brilliance.
