The ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna and Hollywood's star conductor and composer David Newman spirit the audience away into the secretive underworlds of suspense cinema. Soprano Natalia Ushakova sings the two Morricone songs "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "Ecstasy of Gold". Gedeon Burkhard is the compere for the program.
Starting from Billy Wilder's film noir Sunset Boulevard, we move on into the breathtaking world of Alfred Hitchcock (Rebecca, Psycho). Ennio Morricone's music for All the President's Men leads on the trail of Al Capone. Nino Rota portrays the powerful Mafia boss of the Corleone family with his sounds for The Godfather.
An erotic-obsessive moment flares up in Jerry Goldsmith's Basic Instinct. Hans Zimmer's sound painting for Inception draws the listeners through shared dreams into different levels of consciousness.
Lalo Schifrin, who is celebrating his 80th birthday this year, receives the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award. The way Schifrin combines jazz and symphonics inspires audiences and critics alike. His musical theme for Mission Impossible wrote a piece of film history. He calls six Oscar nominations, four Grammys (21 nominations) and a star on Hollywood's "Walk of Fame" his own. Highlights from Schifrin's musical body of work can be heard, with the master also taking up the conductor's baton himself and jazz star Al Jarreau perfoming some Schifrin-songs.
