The Sounds of Cinema

The masterful synthesis of moving images and orchestral forces comes to Adelphi this Fall. The Sounds of Cinema takes the audience on a multimedia tour of 20th Century compositions either scored or re-purposed for films.  Excerpts of classic movies will be projected in the Concert Hall while the Capital Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Vladimir Gorbik, enhance the drama with the complementary film scores.  The emotional range of the concert spans from somber (Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings) to thriller (Bernard Hermann’s Psycho Suite) as the live experience creates new perspectives for the viewer.  Online streaming on your smartphone or laptop will pale in comparison to this cinematic experience: prepare for an evening of lights, camera, and action.
