The orchestra will interpret the soundtrack to 'Star Trek' and 'The Planets' by Holst
Barcelona’s Palau de la Música Catalana is set to offer a special concert that will take music lovers on a trip to the stars at 7pm on the 21st of January, when the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès will play a programme inspired by science fiction and the cosmos featuring Star Trek: through the Years, a version of the soundtrack composed by Jerry Goldsmith; Suite Ed Wood by musician and composer Howard Shore; followed by the orchestral suite The Planets, composed by Gustav Holst in 1918.
One of the most popular soundtrack composers of the 1980s and 90s, Jerry Goldsmith is the creator of the music for one of the most important galactic sagas of all times: Star Trek. Gustav Holst, on the other hand,was one of the leading composers of orchestral music of the early 20th century.
Accompanying the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès will be the Cor de Noies de l’Orfeó Català (with Buia Reixach i Feixes as conductor) and Lydia Kavina on the theremin, which was one of the very first electronic instruments. Diego Martín Etxebarria will be conducting the whole ensemble on its journey to the stars.
