Film Music Fridays

Film Music Friday - November 19, 2021 (A Film Music Concert)

It's common nowadays to hear film music performed in concert by symphony orchestras. However, in the 1930s and '40s, most symphony conductors and critics looked down on film music, so it was rarely recorded or performed in public. On this week's Film Music Friday, we'll hear works that transcended their original film and are now frequently performed in concert, including excerpts from The Adventures of Robin Hood, Spellbound, Bridge on the River Kwai and E.T.

Film Music Friday - October 22, 2021 (Franz Waxman - rebroadcast)

This week, an encore broadcast of our tribute to two-time Academy Award winner Franz Waxman.  Beginning as an orchestrator for film scores, he soon graduated to writing his own movie music, including scores for such films as The Bride of Frankenstein, Sunset Boulevard, A Place in the Sun, Rear Window and Peyton Place.
