Magnificent Movie Music: The Great Masterpieces

04/24/2021 to 04/24/2021

Online, Online, MD 21043

Welcome to Part Two of Magnificent Movie Music with Rachel Franklin. In The Great Masterpieces, we narrow our focus to superb films whose music set new standards for film composition, and influenced every movie score that followed. A terrifying shower scene, young children processing the evils of racism, lethal gun-toting apes on horseback, galactic heroes fighting with The Force – even these simple descriptions bring music to mind. Bernard Herrmann, Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith, and John Williams are some of the greatest movie composers, whose works continue to grace screens large and small today. Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey has arguably the best-known title music in movie history, but who composed it and why is it embedded in our memories? We’ll examine what elements make these scores so exceptional and influential in the development of movie scoring techniques. Films discussed: 2001 A Space Odyssey, Psycho, To Kill a Mockingbird, Planet of the Apes, and Star Wars. Available to watch at your convenience for 48 hours between April 24 - May 8. Tickets: $20/lecture. https://watch.eventive.org/columbiaorchestra/play/605b979770fb4f005c048cab
