Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

Celebrate the sounds of the silver screen with the Scottish Ensemble at The Queen's Hall on Saturday 16th September.

Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

About Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

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.

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.
