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 was Hollywood film expert Steven Gätjen.

The Sound of Space

In 2016, "Hollywood in Vienna" promised to be an unforgettable concert journey to the fantastic worlds of space and time.

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

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

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

Tribute to Alexandre Desplat

The second part of the gala concert honored the composer, 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.

Alexandre Desplat said, when he received the reward:

"Thank you Max Steiner, thank you Vienna. It has been an incredible moment to be able to go to the Leopold Museum, the Sezession, the Albertina and Belvedere and see the masterpieces that we knew from books live, like Dürer at the Albertina, and of course being here on this Podium with Keith after so many otters incredible composers and conductors like Anton Bruckner is something hard to believe."
