About the programme

At least since Rhythm Is It! and his staged reading of the St Matthew Passion, Simon Rattle has been considered a multi-media trailblazer in new forms of musical outreach. Now the designated head of the BRSO will give his début at “Klassik am Odeonsplatz” with an exciting evening of film scores. The programme features Korngold, Rósza, Raksin and John Williams, stylistic trendsetters in a genre that has itself long entered the classical repertoire. As early as 1989 Rattle first conducted the soundtrack to Henry V, and in 2006 he performed the score of Tom Tykwer’s Perfume at the helm of the Berlin Philharmonic. Odeonsplatz listeners will be treated to Korngold’s Robin Hood (1938) and Rózsa’s Ben Hur Suite (1959), both of which won Oscars, as well as Rósza’s Violin Concerto (1953), the basis of the film score to Billy Wilder’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. The soloist is the young violinist Veronika Eberle. And it goes without saying that Hollywood’s éminence grise John Williams will also be there – with such classics as Star Wars, Harry Potter and Indiana Jones.
