songs_heartOn the program today you are going to hear a three hour plus program dedicated to music written for anything but film, TV and video games by film, TV and video game composers.

It is not uncommon place for film composers to cross over and dabble in the concert hall.  Many of the greatest Golden Age film composers actually got their start in the concert world – Erich Wolfgang Korngold, for instance, wrote many operas and symphonies years before scoring such films as THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and THE SEA HAWK.

Others like John Williams, James Horner, Miklos Rozsa, Danny Elfman, Cliff Eidelman, Bernard Herrmann – just to name a few – have also written spectacular and challenging music to be enjoyed away from the silver screen.

This is actually CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO’s third CONCERT MUSIC BY FILM COMPOSERS program.  This is our first since 2006.  On the show today you will be hearing classical works by such composers as Andrew Pearce, Christopher Gordon, Lee Hodridge, Robert Folk, Elliot Goldenthal, Jerry Goldsmith, James Seymour Brett and more.

During the last hour of the broadcast Tim Burden will join the program to honour composer Michael Kamen, who sadly passed away ten years ago on November 18, 2003.  The last hour will feature only music composed by Michael Kamen for the concert hall including his SAXOPHONE CONCERTO for David Sanborn, the Eric Clapton commissioned GUITAR CONCERTO and the Leonard Slatkin commissioned millennium celebration piece THE NEW MOON IN THE OLD MOON’S ARMS.

    Excellent!

  2. Ron Hardcastle says:

    fAnd I STILL hope to find Philip Cobb’s “Songs from the Heart,” which doesn’t seem to be available anywhere! Any suggestions?

  3. Ron Hardcastle says:

    Erik Woods: I’ve been remiss in not telling you that I went to the World of Brass Tunes site and downloaded Philip Cobb’s entire “Songs from the Heart” CD as well as a few more from the albums “Soloist Showcase” and “Black Dyke Gold Volume 11″ by others (in the case of Philip Cobb, I thought I was ordering the CD until it suddenly started downloading). I’m enjoying everything and will likely buy more music from them. What magic! Thank you!
