WCPE FM Cinema Classics Weekend
TheClassicalStation.org Celebrates Sounds of the Silver Screen
TheClassicalStation.org Celebrates Sounds of the Silver Screen Wake Forest, N.C. (March 7, 2015) — WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema, March13 through15, 2015. Throughout this festival, WCPE will share music from films ranging from timeless to obscure. There’s newer music, written especially for the movies, and old masterpieces that make the movie. On Saturday you may request your favorite cinema classic at this link.
“We have so much fun with this every August that we’re doing it again,” offers Woltz. “Beginning with Concert Hall on Friday, we feature Classical selections that have become identified with feature films (think “The Blue Danube” from 2001: A Space Odyssey) plus music written specifically for the silver screen.”
For a stroll down memory lane, hear such notable classical works as:
7:00 p.m. Williams: Music from Jurassic Park
8:00 p.m. Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
9:00 p.m. Desplat: Selections from The Imitation Game
9:00 a.m. Shore: Selections from The Fellowship of the Ring
10:00 a.m. Korngold: Captain Blood Suite
11:00 a.m. Telemann: Concerto in F for Three Violins from Tafelmusik, Part II
12:00 p.m. Morricone: Selections from The Mission
5:00 p.m. Stravinsky: Firebird Suite
11:00 a.m. Rozsa: Choral Suite from Ben Hur
12:00 p.m. Shore: Selections from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
1:00 p.m. Klimek: “Cloud Atlas Sextet” (for Orchestra)
2:00 p.m. Williams: Three Pieces from Schindler’s List
3:00 p.m. Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
4:00 p.m. Lunn: Downton Abbey, the Suite
“This is one of our most popular theme weekends, and one that will bring back more than a few memories,” adds Woltz.
