In just over a week, the events for the 10th edition of the Hollywood in Vienna festival will begin, which has two concerts on September 28th and 29th as main events, with composer Danny Elfman receiving the Max Steiner Award (read news with more information about this).
The first of the events organized for that week will be the opening concert ‘Janoskas Go Hollywood’ on Monday, September 25th – 8 pm at the Wiener Konzerthaus (Mozart Hall), performed by the Janoska Ensemble, which is composed by virtuoso pianist Frantisek Janoska (who also participates in the concerts of Hollywood in Vienna) along with his brothers Ondrej Janoska and Roman Janoska to violin and double bass player Julius Darvas.
With a lot of spirit, wit and a desire for improvisation, the quartet will perform a particular version of works by the pioneer in Holywood of Viennese music Max Steiner (‘Gone With the Wind’, ‘Casablanca’) and renowned composers such as Lalo Schifrin (‘Mission: Impossible’), Ennio Morricone (‘Once upon a time in the West’, ‘Cinema Paradiso’), John Williams (‘E.T.’, ‘Schindler’s List’, ‘Star Wars’), Alexandre Desplat (‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’) or Justin Hurwitz (‘La La Land’) among others.
The repertoire of pieces to be performed will also include ensemble’s own compositions such as “007 in the Naschmarkt”, based on Monty Norman’s James Bond.
