Concert "Hollywood in Vienna" in the Vienna Konzerthaus

Hollywood in Vienna

"Comedy Tonight" is the motto at the grand gala of film music on 25 September in the Wiener Konzerthaus. Star guest and prize-winner of this year’s Max Steiner Award is the American composer and singer Randy Newman, who will be honored with a tribute.

Masterpieces of film music performed by a leading orchestra and great singers - that’s "Hollywood in Vienna" in the Wiener Konzerthaus (24 and 25 September). In addition, the Max Steiner Award is also awarded each year during a gala concert (25 September) to a composer who has written timeless melodies for famous movies.

The first part of the evening program is called "Comedy Tonight". Everything is represented there for movie-goers to laugh tears over, from the "Muppets" to the "Simpsons", from "Mr. Bean" to "Monty Python". Classic comedies such as "The Pink Panther" and "Sabrina" are also on the program, as are reminiscences of the 19th century: "Ragtime" and "The Artist".

A Tribute to Randy Newman

Star guest and prize-winner of the 2014 Max Steiner Award is the American composer and singer Randy Newman, whose uncle Alfred Newman is a nine-time Oscar winner. Randy Newman wrote the music for the films "Toy Story" and "Monster, Inc". He also had hits in the pop charts, such as "Short People" and "You can leave your hat on". Randy Newman is also present at the pre-premiere on 24 September.

The musical accompaniment is once again provided by the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, conducted by another relation of Randy’s - his cousin David Newman. Other guests include opera star Adrian Eröd, the R&B singers Cassandra Steen and David Whitley, as well as the Neue Wiener Stimmen (New Viennese Voices).

Actor Gedeon Burkhard presents.
