Lights, Camera, Action!

Music, Germany 2015

The Waldbühne ("forest scene") in Berlin, one of the most appealing outdoor amphitheatres on the European continent, is the home of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s summer concerts. With over 20.000 in attendance, they are some of the most popular classical music concerts in the world. In 2015 the Berliner Philharmoniker surrounded themselves with plenty of celebrities, including not only conductor Sir Simon Rattle, but also many figures from film history: Indiana Jones, Robin Hood, Ben Hur and many more. They were all brought to life musically when the orchestra performed some of Hollywood’s most famous film music. At the end of the concert, conductor Simon Rattle addressed a few words to the audience, hoping that the audience had enjoyed listening to the concert as much as the orchestra had enjoyed playing the pieces. Pieces that, according to Rattle, were new to the musicians. What was not new, however, was the piece played as an encore: "Berliner Luft", by German composer Paul Lincke, often played at the end of the Berliner Philharmoniker's summer concert season. List of the works played: Scott Bradley, "Tom & Jerry" Bronislau Kaper, "Mutiny on the Bounty" Erich Wolfgang Korngold, "The Adventures of Robin Hood" Jerome Moross, "The Big Country" David Raksin, "Laura" Miklós Rózsa, "Ben Hur" John Williams, "Indiana Jones - Raiders March", "E.T. - Flying Theme", "Star Wars - Main Title" Encore: Paul Lincke, "Berliner Luft"
