Classic works, veteran performers…
The first inaugural concerts featured the world premiere of John Williams’ score from “Memoirs of a Geisha,” Don Davis’ U.S. premiere of music from “The Matrix,” the world premiere of Clint Eastwood’s “Flags of our Fathers,” the world premiere of Craig Armstrong’s score to Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center,” the world premiere of a new symphonic suite from “Antony and Cleopatra,” a moving tribute to Dave Grusin’s score from “Havana” by director Sidney Pollack, and a revealing introduction to John Williams’ “Dracula” by director John Badham. Rounding out two evenings of gorgeous musicianship were performances of classics from Korngold, North, Rozsa and more.
Dedicated to preserving and presenting works by contemporary composers of film and television music in a setting worthy of their creative gifts and talents, the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra honors an art form heard too rarely on the concert stage to its full dramatic effect. Concerts present symphonic film music from composers of the silver screen’s golden age to emerging talents, providing a glimpse into the history of film music and exposure to future classics by our greatest composers.
The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra is pleased to bring these exquisite concerts to our community.
