Friday 26th October will see the maestro John Williams conduct at the Royal Albert Hall for the first time in 20 years, and Classic FM announce that the whole concert will be broadcast live.
For the first time in 20 years, John Williams, one of the world’s most successful composers of movie music, is returning to the UK to conduct his iconic film scores in a spectacular concert – to be broadcast live and exclusively on Classic FM.
Throughout the evening, some of the best film music in living memory will be performed, as Williams is reunited with the London Symphony Orchestra, the ensemble that recorded his 1977 masterpiece Star Wars: A New Hope, as well as other acclaimed scores, such as Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and Schindler’s List.
During the programme, Classic FM’s listeners will hear an exclusive interview recorded with Williams in LA, first broadcast to mark the composer’s 80th birthday.
Fantha Tracks will be there in force for what promises to be a magical evening. We’re expecting many tears of happiness.
