film music concert STEVEN SPIELBERG & JOHN WILLIAMS in Oslo, Norway (+01.06.)

31.May.2017

 

Oslo Konserthus 

Performed by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Vasily Petrenko.

further performance: June 1st, 2017

John Williams and Steven Spielberg met at the beginning of the 1970s. At that time, John Williams was a fully-fledged composer of music for TV series, film comedies and film adaptations of literary works. In JAWS (1975) – his second cooperation with Steven Spielberg, who was not yet thirty at the time – ominous incessant cello and double bass sounds unite to entrench themselves in the collective consciousness in a manner similar to the shrill violins in PSYCHO (1960). Just two notes are enough to inspire fear and terror in the audience – the associated visual images are not even required. 

With music from: 

JURASSIC PARK, JAWS, WAR HORSE, SCHINDLER'S LIST, INDIANA JONES, 
HOOK, WAR OF THE WORLDS, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, THE TERMINAL, E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL
