Music of the Movies
Tonight’s Special Guest star will set the scene for our Great Film Composers Prom as we continue our 35th anniversary celebrations, which this year sees Owain Arwel Hughes CBE welcome the wonderful WNO Orchestra for an evening of the most iconic movie scores of all-time.
John Williams, widely regarded as one of the greatest American film composers, is well represented this year with a lively rendition of Raiders of the Lost Ark followed by his Academy Award winning music from Schindler’s List, Jaws, ET and Star Wars amongst others.
The evening also includes Max Steiner’s Tara’s Theme from the 1939 epic historical romance Gone with the Wind and back by popular demand are Hans Zimmer’s Gladiator, Enio Morricone’s Chi Mai and Freddie Mercury’s 1975 masterpiece Bohemian Rhapsody, which raised the roof at St David’s Hall last year.
Conductor: Owain Arwel Hughes CBE
