Winston-Salem Symphony Orchestra: Film Composers Onstage

Robert Moody 150pxComposers who achieved great fame and adulation in part by writing wonderful music for films are featured on this program. The Winston-Salem Symphony and conductor Robert Moody bring you a piece from John Williams’ score for War Horse—Dartmoor, 1912; there’s a Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D by an earlier film giant, Erich Kordgold; and the program concludes with the Symphony No. 5 in d-minor by Russian great Dmitri Shostakovich. It may not be a trip to the movies, but it’s a terrific musical journey on Carolina Live.
