Music from the Movies
celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of British cinema
the music of seven composers was showcased at a Screen Extravaganza
concert on Saturday 21st September 1996 at the Royal Festival
Hall. The music was performed by the National Symphony Orchestra
and the concert was presented by actor Nigel Havers. The concert
was produced by Rewind Productions Ltd.
Part 1 of the concert
concluded with three pieces conducted by Debbie Wiseman. Her
exquisite theme from Haunted was given a powerful full
orchestral treatment whilst her music from Tom and Viv had a real taste of melodrama and unashamed romance in the style
of the 'golden age' scores of Steiner and Rozsa. Her award-winning
theme from The Good Guys worked well in an extended concert
hall setting. All three selections were extremely well played.
