Film music by James Horner in Rudolfinum. The Prague Rudolfinum will resound on October 2 with film music by the exceptional composer James Horner. He is the author of the blockbusters Titanic, Avatar, Pure Soul, Aliens or Star Trek music. The concert will be performed in a unique performance by the Film Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Marek Šedivý.
During his lifetime, James Horner teamed up with creators Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Ron Howard, but the most exceptional was his collaboration with director James Cameron. Together they produced the most profitable films of their time – Titanic and Avatar. Horner won two Oscars for his music for the feature film music in Titanic, and he received a number of awards and nominations for Grammy and Golden Globes for his other film compositions.
This composer has appealed to many generations of film fans – the concert on October 2 will feature music from the blockbusters Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart, Pure Soul and several others. The James Horner Concert is another in a series of composer concerts of the Filmharmonie, started by John Williams.
The Film Philharmonic is a symphony orchestra dedicated to processing film music. Filmharmonie’s concerts are most often dedicated to a particular film genre, while James Horner’s music concert is unique in that the concept of the program is approached quite the opposite and provides a unique insight into Horner’s magical film world. “Unlike our monothematic programs, we now bring the audience a different perspective,” says the director and playwright of the orchestra Matěj Lehár. “Viewers can enjoy the composer’s handwriting on several levels – from romantic music, through heartbreaking drama to thrilling sci-fi music.”
The concert will be conducted by Marek Šedivý, principal guest conductor of the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, who collaborated with the Film Philharmonic in 2014 and also conducted a concert of John Williams film music in 2019. You can also look forward to the Bonifantes Boys Choir under the direction of choirmaster Jan Míšek.
