A New Hope
Other sessions:11 January, 20:00 12 January, 20:00
After the great success of live soundtrack performances for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, this time the Gulbenkian Orchestra will play live the music from the movie Star Wars: A New Hope, the first of the saga to be made by George Lucas. “I think in my mind, and possibly also George Lucas’s, when I was writing the score, I thought it was a children’s film”, said composer John Williams in a Gramophone interview. “The emotions would have to be large, a sense of good versus evil made palpable. Simple tunes would be the key“. And it would soon prove that this “key” was right.
