Official description

The lighter side of the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation’s “Great Artists Concert Series 2014” features a show entitled “A Night At The Movies” at Thailand Cultural Centre on July 6 at 8pm.

It will star soprano Robyn North, who made a lasting impression at the venue last September when she appeared with the BSO in “A Night At The Musicals”. Male vocalist Matt Rawle, who is also a very experienced West End solo performer, will also star in the performance.

Versatile and renowned conductor Roderick Dunk will steer the orchestra and singers through a marvellous and generous programme of movie soundtrack themes and songs, both old and new.

Academy Award-winning film Lawrence Of Arabia features one of the lushest and exotically romantic melodies ever and after the BSO opens the concert with this beautiful piece, composed by Maurice Jarre, the works of Michel Jean Legrand become the focus.

His unforgettable Windmills Of Your Mind and What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life? and The Way He Makes Me Feel from Yentl will be followed by the moving duet How Do You Keep the Music Playing?

Music from Howard Shore’s much more recent score for The Lord Of The Rings will remind everyone that classic cinema scores have also been made in the 21st century, as this original piece won an Academy Award in 2002.

Tickets cost from 500-2,500 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com).

For more information, call 02-255-6617/8 or 02-254-4954.

Francis Lai’s heart-wrenching Love Story tune Where Do I Begin is paired with his equally well-known Un Homme Et Une Femme (A Man And A Woman) before the first half concludes with iconic songs from Les Miserables — I Dreamed A Dream, The Prayer and The People’s Song. The recent film version of this stage show stars Robyn North herself and Matt Rawle has performed it numerous times in London. James Bond fans will be delighted by John Barry’s From Russia With Love and Burt Bacharach aficionados likewise with one of the suavest, coolest theme songs ever — The Look Of Love as made famous by Dusty Springfield in the 1967 Bond spoof movie Casino Royale.

Music from Howard Shore’s much more recent score for The Lord Of The Rings will remind everyone that classic cinema scores have also been made in the 21st century, as this original piece won an Academy Award in 2002.

Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story will bring the evening towards a close with Something’s Coming and Somewhere, before our favourite blockbuster soundtrack maestro John Williams will have the final say with the immortal Star Wars theme.

Tickets cost from 500-2,500 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com).
