About Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds
Barber: Adagio for Strings (from Platoon)
Copland: Hoedown (from Rodeo)
Janácek: String Quartet No.2 (from The Unbearable Lightness of Being)

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.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
