Orchestra ORF RSO Wien playing at the concert gala "Hollywood in Vienna" at Wiener Konzerhtaus

Hollywood in Vienna

Masterpieces of film music performed by the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Keith Lockhart, the Neue Wiener Stimmen (New Vienna Voices) choir and great singers - that's "Hollywood in Vienna" at the Wiener Konzerthaus. The host for the evening is Hollywood film expert Steven Gätjen.

The Sound of Space

This year, "Hollywood in Vienna" promises to be an unforgettable concert journey to the fantastic worlds of space and time.

The music to 2001: A Space Odyssey allows audiences to experience the infinite dimensions of the universe. In Interstellar, between the stars, humanity of the future runs into difficulties finding new inhabitable worlds. The light and dark sides of the Force battle it out in the world-famous Star Wars.

Then Star Trek’s starship Enterprise warps into view to explore distant galaxies where no one has gone before. In Contact, signals are received from alien lifeforms.

In Close Encounters of Third Kind, a five-tone phrase enables communication. Finally, everything revolves around E.T.'s most ardent wish: to phone home.

Tribute to Alexandre Desplat

The second part of the gala concert will honor the composer of the new Star Wars - Rogue One film and Oscar and Golden Globe winner Alexandre Desplat. He created atmospheric film music sounds, including for Harry Potter, Twilight, The King's Speech, The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
