The universe and intergalactic spheres are the topic of the film music gala "Hollywood in Vienna" on 3 and 4 October at the Wiener Konzerthaus. The journey "On to New Worlds" continues with "A Tribute to James Horner", star guest and creator of famous film melodies such as "Avatar" and "Titanic".

The ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna (RSO) and Oscar prize-winner James Horner, composer of many great Hollywood melodies, send the audience "On to New Worlds". On board Star Trek and Apollo 13, listeners go on a musical journey to the universe, where all sorts of aliens are to be encountered in the sounds of Gattaca, Artificial Intelligence and Independence Day.

A Tribute to James Horner

The Best of Horner Medley starts with the music to Avatar and und visualizes the fascination of the moon Pandora. A Beautiful Mind explores the depths of the human psyche; in Legends of the Fall, the listener can dream of rural idyll, and in Braveheart follow the fighter on his path to freedom. The journey comes to an end on board the sinking Titanic.

These highlights from the oeuvre of James Horner are performed by the RSO Wien under the direction of David Newman. James Horner himself will also stand at the conductor’s desk.

The singers are: operastar Ildiko Raimondi, popsinger Deborah Cox and singer/songwriter Jeremy Schonfeld.

At the festive close of the gala, James Horner will receive the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award 2013.  This award is one in a series of other important prizes: including two Oscars, seven Oscar nominations and two Golden Globes.

Actor Gedeon Burkhard presents.
