Mozart Went To The Movies is a three-part series on the history of orchestral film music, from its roots in European concert halls to its use in cutting edge multimedia.
Part One: The Orchestra Comes to The Odeon
Silent movies were never silent. We trace the orchestra's journey from the opera house to the movie house.
Part Two: Escaping to Hollywood
How Jewish refugees from Nazi Europe forever changed the sound of movie music.
Part Three: Space Operas and The Digital Age
Star Wars marks the return of the epic orchestral score. And we'll hear how the classic movie sound is influencing digital media, and creating new audiences for symphonic music.
This week on The Score, with Edmund Stone, Bella Roma. We’ll hear music from films set in ancient and modern Rome; from Quo Vadis and Gladiator to La Dolce Vita and Angels and Demons.
This week on The Score, with Edmund Stone, Lost in Space: Houston, we have a film score. We’ll hear music from stories about people marooned in outer space. Music this week from Gravity, Interstellar, Apollo 13 and more.
This week on The Score, with Edmund Stone, Music for Zombies. Zombies are bona fide movie stars these days. We’ll hear scores from both recent and classic films about the walking dead, including World War Z, 28 Days Later, and the film that started it all: George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
This week on The Score, with Edmund Stone, another conversation from the archives, this time a 1979 interview with the Master of Suspense himself: Alfred Hitchcock. A previously unheard interview with the legendary suspense director, plus music from films including Psycho, Vertigo and North By Northwest.
