Sakamoto - 1919
Christopher Gunning - Piano Trio No. 1 (World Premiere)
Korngold - Piano Trio in D major, op. 1
Join us as we celebrate three composers who successfully wrote music for both the concert hall and the screen. We start with Sakamoto’s ground breaking 1919, which features music to the movie ‘Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence’. The middle work is an exciting new commission by us of a trio by Christopher Gunning. Christopher’s film and TV work is extensive indeed, but he is most famous for writing the music for the hit series ‘Poirot’.
Our concert finishes with Korngold’s only piano trio. Along with such composers as Max Steiner and Alfred Newman, he is considered an early pioneer of film music. Korngold’s 1938 Academy Award for his score to ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ marked the first time an Oscar was awarded to the composer rather than the head of the studio music department. - Robert Atchison
