MUSIC AND FILM: A SYMPHONIC DISCUSSION
MUSIC AND FILM: A SYMPHONIC DISCUSSION WITH ULRIKE HAAGE, DIETRICH BRÜGGEMANN, AND ENJOTT SCHNEIDER
Organized by the Versicherungskammer Kulturstiftung in collaboration with BR-Klassik
Since the first "talkie" was made 100 years ago, films without a musical track can hardly be imagined. Soundtracks are a phenomenon that appeals to the masses and that attracts people to concert halls who wouldn't normally be very interested in symphonic music. Some scores are part of our collective memory — just think of certain soundtracks from westerns or love stories or thrillers. "The film tells you what's happening and the music tells you how it's happening" is a rule of thumb for film enthusiasts. But is this true? Are film and music really an inseparable combination? And if so, are composers of soundtracks merely providing a service? Is it possible to exercise artistic freedom while composing so-called e-music and marketable soundtracks?
Discussing this will be director, musician, and blogger Dietrich Brüggemann, musician and composer Ulrike Haage, and composer and professor emeritus of film soundtracks Enjott Schneider.
Music: Dietrich Brüggemann, Ulrike Haage, Enjott Schneider, Henry Mancini, Nino Rota
Ulrike Haage and musicians of the Munich Symphony Orchestra will perform.
