Holst Mars, The Bringer of War (fromThe Planets)
We owe a great deal to the film composers of our time for elevating the cinema experience with memorable and moving music.
This is perhaps most evident when telling stories about war, and in this second installment of our CINEMATIC series we will perform music that depicts the heroism and heartbreak of battle.
We will traverse an emotional landscape, highlights including Tchaikovsky’s thunderous 1812 Overture, the Roman epic Gladiator, and the heart-wrenching music from Schindler’s List.
