The Covent Garden Sinfonia conducted by Ben Palmer, will premiere live Neil Brand’s new score for the 1919 Ernest Shackleton film ‘South’, on Thursday, January 27, at the British Film Institute IMAX in London.


Official description:

“In 2022 the BFI marks the centenary of the death of Sir Ernest Shackleton, which traditionally signaled the end of the ‘heroic age’ of Antarctic exploration. A record of one of the greatest survival stories in the history of exploration, South is the original film – exquisitely photographed by Frank Hurley – of Shackleton’s 1914-16 Endurance expedition to Antarctica, during which the ship was crushed by ice, stranding the crew. Brought to the epic IMAX screen, South has been digitally remastered from the BFI National Archive’s restoration in its original colours with a newly commissioned score by Neil Brand, performed by the Covent Garden Sinfonia, conducted by Ben Palmer.”
