Line-up '2001 and Beyond: A Symphonic Odyssey' is taking shape

News 13 Aug 2018
We can proudly announce two more scores that will be performed at our concert '2001 and Beyond: a Symphonic Odyssey': 'The Right Stuff' (Bill Conti) and 'The Rocketeer' (James Horner)

The 50th birthday of Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking masterpiece '2001: A Space Odyssey' is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the amazing scores of films taking place in space. '2001 and Beyond: A Symphonic Odyssey': explores the musical richness of different generations of composers who gave their own sound to traveling through the universe. The concert also brings a piece of cosmic film music history to life, with an emphasis on the great composers of the seventies, eighties and nineties of last century, complemented by work by contemporary colleagues.

Our line-up is taking shape with two more scores: 'The right Stuff' (Bill Conti), The Rocketeer (James Horner). We already announced a number of space classics such as 'Star Wars', 'Star Trek', 'Alien', 'The Black Hole', 'Solaris', 'The Martian', 'Starship Troopers', 'Mission to Mars' and the incredible Black Mirror-episode 'USS Callister'.

Also included into the programme, is Alex North's original score for '2001: A Space Odyssey'; a score that Kubrick replaced at the very last minute by existing classical music from, amongst others, Johann Strauss.
