Hollywood in Vienna
Masterpieces of film music performed by the ORF Viennese Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Keith Lockhart and great singers - that's "Hollywood in Vienna" at the Wiener Konzerthaus.
As a warm-up to Halloween, eerily beautiful film music from popular Hollywood classics is played this year: After a visit to the dismal Manderley Estate from the Hitchcock classic Rebecca, you will encounter the eccentric and bizarre Addams Family, the immortal, bustling ex-wives of an undertaker in Death Becomes Her, the ever-younger Benjamin Button and Alice in Wonderland.
The fantastic journey continues to the unusually romantic vampires in Twilight, the spooky Poltergeist, the mysterious brotherhoods in The Da Vinci Code, the sinister perfumer Grenouille in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and to a fallen angel from The Omen.
A Tribute to James Newton Howard
The second part of the gala concert is dedicated to the Hollywood composer James Newton Howard, who, as the star guest, will be awarded live with the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award.
His melodies from mystical films such as The Dark Knight, The Village and Disney's Maleficent will be heard, as well as his romantic compositions for Pretty Woman and The Prince of Tides. His hit "The Hanging Tree" from The Hunger Games took top spot in the charts in Germany and Austria.
