WHAT'S ON / Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

16 September 2017 at 7:30pm

Including…

Barber: Adagio for Strings (from Platoon)
Copland: Hoedown (from Rodeo)
Janácek: String Quartet No.2 (from The Unbearable Lightness of Being)

And extracts from…

Craig Armstrong: The Great Gatsby
Philip Glass: Dracula
Bernard Hermann: Psycho
Ennio Morricone: Once Upon A Time In The West and others

Our hand-picked showcase of music from films really celebrates the power of sound – sound with the power to provoke the simplest to the most subtle of emotions.

This pick-and-mix selection includes works either written for, or featured in, films from the dawn of cinema to today. Barber’s famous Adagio and rousing works by Schubert and Copland nestle amongst the now-legendary western soundtracks of Ennio Morricone, as well as others from comedies, horrors and thrillers. Each stands alone as an alternately enthralling, haunting, thought-provoking, moving, powerful or entertaining piece of music.
