The composer will interpret his best known works
He is one of the world’s most important film score composers and has been nominated for no fewer than eight Oscars. He won one for his work on the Gran Hotel Budapest, an expressive composition that marks the frenetic rhythms of Wes Anderson’s film. We’re speaking about Alexandre Desplat, who will be visiting Barcelona to direct a number of his own compositions in two sessions on 22 and 23 December at L'Auditori.
Working on an average of six films per year, Desplat has left his own particular stamp on films like the latest Harry Potter titles, fearlessly taking on the challenge of carrying on with a task begun by John Williams. Giving musical form to the motions of a film is a feat that is within the grasp of few composers and the most complex union of two worlds that are not as distant as they may seem: music and images.
In Barcelona, Desplat will be interpreting music from films like Girl with a Pearl Earring, Philomena, The Imitation Game, Ghost Writer, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Godzilla, The King’s Speech, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and Coco avant Chanel. This session in the OBC’s season will be a treat for both film and music lovers.
