Film Music Friday - April 24, 2020 (Jerry Goldsmith)

On this week's Film Music Friday, we'll attempt the impossible -- to distill a 50+ year career of creating innovative and exciting film scores into just two hours.  Jerry Goldsmith began writing music for network radio dramas in the '50s and eventually worked in television and finally movies, where he wrote music for films like The Omen, Lonely Are the Brave, Alien, Patton, The Sand Pebbles, The Blue Max and five Star Trek films, among many others.  We'll hear excerpts from these and more on Film Music Friday.

Classics Live 100: Soojin Jin and Sojung Kwak, pianists
