On the 14th of June the Vallès Symphony Orchestra will offer a concert dedicated to the soundtracks for films such as “Amadeus”, “Life is Beautiful” and “Forrest Gump”
On Saturday the 14th of June in the Palau de la Música, the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Rubén Gimeno, will offer a concert entitled The unseen of cinema, dedicated to the soundtracks from eleven award-winning blockbusters from the 1980s and 90s. The event will be compered by actor Jordi Brau, a Catalan and Spanish voice-over specialist for actors the likes of Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Kenneth Branagh, Robin Williams, Nicholas Cage and Daniel Day Lewis.
One section of the concert will be dedicated to large-scale orchestral productions such as Joe Renzetti’s piece for the horror film Child’s Play, John Williams’s scores for the war dramas Born on the Fourth of July and Saving Private Ryan and the crisp, poetic score for Life is Beautiful, by Italian composer, Incola Piovani.
The remainder of the performance will include a combination of tunes from a variety of films, including the gentle swing “What a Wonderful World” from Good Morning, Vietnam, written by Louis Armstrong, a selection of pieces by Mozart included in the film about his life, Amadeus, the serene sadness of Samuel Barber’s string adagio in Platoon and the dramatic irony of the score for Mrs. Doubtfire.
In Apollo 13, the dramatic situation facing the astronauts left adrift on the way to the moon is perfectly captured in the film’s central theme by James Horner, which will form part of the repertoire alongside the iconic Mission Impossible and to finish up the concert, the suite by Alan Silvestre for the ever-popular Forrest Gump.
The title of the event, “The unseen of cinema" refers to that which audiences don’t see on the big screen. Tickets for the concert on the 14th of June at 7 pm in the Palau de la Música are priced from 13 to 46 euros.
