Stanley Kubrick’s innovative masterpiece ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is exactly 50 years old in 2018, and that calls for celebration. In this concert, we travel with the symphonic film score into space and discover the musical riches of various generations of composers who each gave their own distinctive sound to the journey through the universe.
May the force be with you!
We discover the musical richness of different generations of composers who gave their own sound to traveling through the universe. The concert also brings a piece of cosmic film music history to life, with an emphasis on the great composers of the seventies, eighties and nineties of last century, supplemented by work by contemporary colleagues.
Brace yourself for the space operas of John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, John Barry, Elliot Goldenthal, Harry Gregson-Williams and Cliff Martinez. And let yourself be overwhelmed and carried away by the soundtracks from 'Star Wars', 'Star Trek', 'Moonraker', 'Alien', 'The Black Hole', 'Solaris', 'The Martian', 'Black Mirror: USS Callister' many others.
We also premiere a fragment of the original score of Alex North for '2001: A Space Odyssey'; a score that Kubrick replaced at the last moment with Strauss's existing classical music.
