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.
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.
