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, An Animated Christmas. We’ll sample music from some of holiday-themed animation, including Arthur Christmas, The Polar Express and How the Grinch Stole Christmas on the next edition of The Score.
No holiday season is complete without Twas the Night Before Christmas – from our house to yours – enjoy!
This week on The Score with Edmund Stone, A conversation with John Debney, composer of the Oscar-winning score to The Passion of the Christ. We’ll talk about his work on that film, as well as Iron Man 2, Predators, and literally dozens of others on the next edition of The Score.
