About this Performance

Since talkies first showed music’s power to transform moving images, composers have heightened on-screen action and illuminated unspoken drama with soundtracks as inventive and wide-ranging as the films they scored. Few have a greater appreciation for the history of film music—or a larger impact on its story—than John Williams, and the maestro of the movies curates this exploration of cinematic composition featuring landmark Hollywood scores—ranging from VertigoSpartacus, and Ben-Hur to The Godfather, Once Upon a Time in the West, and Back to the Futureall performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by David Newman.

This event features performances of music from film scores with no accompanying video.
