Scottish Ensemble: Silver Screen Sounds

Soundtracks and scores for strings
Friday 15 September, 7.30pm (pre-concert talk at 6.45pm)

Our hand-picked showcase of music from films really celebrates the power of sound – sound with the power to provoke the simplest to the most subtle of emotions.

This pick-and-mix selection includes works either written for, or featured in, films from the dawn of cinema to today. Barber’s famous Adagio and rousing works by Schubert and Copland nestle amongst the now-legendary western soundtracks of Ennio Morricone, as well as others from comedies, horrors and thrillers. Each stands alone as an alternately enthralling, haunting, thought-provoking, moving, powerful or entertaining piece of music.

Concert features:

Barber                          Adagio for Strings (from Platoon)
Copland                       Hoedown (from Rodeo)
Janáček                        String Quartet No.2 (from The Unbearable Lightness of Being)

And extracts from

Craig Armstrong          The Great Gatsby
Philip Glass                     Dracula
Bernard Hermann        Psycho
Ennio Morricone           Once Upon A Time In The West and more
This event includes an SE BLETHER – an informal 30-minute pre-concert talk in Tramway 1 6.45pm. Go to www.scottishensemble.co.uk for more details on what to expect.
