Conductor Simon Rattle, considered a multi-media trailblazer in new forms of musical outreach, will give his début at “Klassik am Odeonsplatz” in Munich, Germany, with an exciting evening of film scores. The program, performed by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, features Korngold, Rósza, Raksin, and John Williams, stylistic trendsetters in a genre that has itself long entered the classical repertoire.


Odeonsplatz listeners will be treated to Korngold’s Robin Hood (1938) and Rózsa’s Ben Hur Suite (1959), both of which won Oscars, as well as Rósza’s Violin Concerto (1953), the basis of the film score to Billy Wilder’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. The soloist is the young violinist Veronika Eberle. And it goes without saying that Hollywood’s éminence grise John Williams will also be there – with such classics as Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Indiana Jones.


The program will be as follows:

  • Miklos Rozsa – from Ben Hur Suite – Selection – I. Prelude and VI. Parade of the Charioteers
  • Miklos Rozsa – Violin Concerto
  • John Williams – Star Wars: Main Title
  • John Williams – Harry Potter and the Sorcerers’ Stone: Hedwig’s Theme
  • David Raksin – Laura Theme
  • Erich Korngold – The Adventures of Robin Hood – Selection – from The Adventures of Robin Hood I. Fanfare. II. Robin Hood and His Merry Men III. Love Scene V. The Fight, Victory and Epilogue
