18.45: Pre-concert talk by John Wilson

John Wilson takes his movie music as seriously as many conductors take their Beethoven and Mahler. No conductor alive reveals the cinematic detail or momentous power of Hollywood scores like Wilson does, and he comes to Bergen for this concert with some of the very best ever written.

From the iconic 20th Century Fox Fanfare to the romance and sweep of Max Steiner’s music for Gone with the Wind, Wilson will transform the Grieg Hall into an American movie theatre with his Hollywood Rhapsody. Also on the bill are John Williams’s imposing Star Wars score, the knockabout fun of Scott Bradley’s music for Tom and Jerry, Miklós Rózsa’s unforgettable themes for Ben Hur and the vast expanse of Jerome Moross’s signature sounds for The Big Country and more. Let John Wilson and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra transport you to Hollywood this January!
