Film Music Fridays

Film Music Friday - November 13, 2020 (Danny Elfman)

This week on Film Music Friday it's the work of composer Danny Elfman.  As a devoted film fan (but not an aspiring film composer), Elfman has said that writing music for movies is like "the fan getting pulled into the sport".  We'll hear themes from Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Edward Scissorhands, Men in Black, Justice League and Nightmare Before Christmas, among others.

Film Music Friday - October 9, 2020 (The Epic)

The dictionary defines the word “epic” as a grand or heroic story.  In Hollywood the epic is a movie that’s big – really big – and a big movie needs big music.  This week on Film Music Friday we're hearing music from some classic epics, including The Sea Hawk, Ben-Hur, King Kong and The Man Who Would Be King, along with some contemporary epics, too.
 

Film Music Friday - October 2, 2020 (John Williams)

This week's Film Music Friday is devoted to the music of John Williams. He is arguably the most popular and influential composer of the last 100 years, with a resume that includes scores for such classic films as Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark and many more. In less than two hours we'll do our best to play some of the highlights from John Williams' 50+ year career.
