Film Music Marathon

26 February 2010

WWFM The Classical Network will set the stage for Oscar night with a weekend filled with music from the big screen March 5 through March 7.

‘Lights, Camera Music!’ will kick off Friday, March 5, with a daylong, on-air tribute to the music of John Williams (Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones), Bernard Herrmann (Psycho, North by Northwest) and other composers behind the soundtracks of movie blockbusters. The celebration will continue through Sunday as a ‘Theme Stream’ an online-only program available via the station’s Internet streaming.

The weekend’s programming will include original music from film scores, such as Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia and The Godfather, as well as classical music masterpieces that have been immortalized in movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Fantasia. The Theme Stream will also feature concert works by composers most often associated with film scores, such as Erich Wolfgang Korngold (The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Sea Hawk) and Miklos Rozsa (Spellbound, Ben-Hur).
