After the successful and much-loved concert of the film music giants, we are coming with the second series of timeless film screen melodies. This time, the ČNSO prepared melodies from the films Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Mission: Impossible, Titanic, James Bond or Memories of Africa from the pen of greats such as Danny Elfman, Lalo Schifrin, James Horner and Leonard Bernstein. Composer legends who have proven that film music is not only a musical genre that is created only as part of a specific film work, but because of its enormous scope it will become a world-recognized artistic gem.

Following on from the success of the Giants of Film Music concert, we have come up with a second series of timeless melodies from the big screen. This time we have handpicked melodies from Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Mission: Impossible, Titanic, James Bond and Memories of Africa composed by greats including Danny Elfman, Lalo Schifrin, James Horner and Leonard Bernstein. These are indisputably composing legends who have proved that film music is not merely a musical genre created as part of a specific film, but which due to its enormous scope, is a world-renowned artistic gem in its own right.

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra has performed a plethora of interpretations of film music and soundtracks from the history of cinema in the Czech Republic as well as abroad. That is why we delight in continuing to feature melodies from the silver screen in our programme. The concert will take place on 15th November 2023, hosted as usual by the Smetana Hall of the Municipal House, under the baton of the orchestra's music director Steven Mercurio.

CNSO - Czech National Symphony Orchestra

Over the past 30 years the Czech National Symphony Orchestra has grown to become one of the leading Czech ensembles, currently ranking among the most highly sought-after orchestras in Europe. Its glowing reputation can be attributed to the members’ versatility, performing a wide range of genres, spanning classical works, film music and jazz, as well as musicals, which attract large domestic and international audiences.
