Saturday At The Movies

Today, join us for a pro­gramme of music from movie and TV sound­tracks — and now we’re includ­ing some gam­ing sound­tracks, which have become as sophis­ti­cat­ed as movie scores in recent years and include some of the same composers.

Movies are where most peo­ple hear orches­tral music these days, and there will be plen­ty of that in this pro­gramme. But movie music is a much broad­er field than that, and today you’ll hear music from the movies of many dif­fer­ent kinds, from the very start of the genre (with Camille Saint-Saens) to the lat­est block­busters; from orches­tral music to rock, to Fifties songs. There is a slight bias towards fan­ta­sy and SF movies, but nev­er mind, we all need a bit of an escape these days.…

Saturday At The Movies

Today, join us for a pro­gramme of music from the movies, today fea­tur­ing the music of Christo­pher Gun­ning, who sad­ly passed away recent­ly. Best known for his music for Agatha Christie’s Poirot, he was a pro­lif­ic com­pos­er who wrote a dozen sym­phonies as well as numer­ous film and TV sound­tracks. For more on his life and work, vis­it his web site.

The Magic of The Musical: “Musicals for the Win!”

The Mag­ic of The Musi­cal explores the blend­ing of music and dra­ma — fea­tur­ing the songs, his­to­ry, and lore that make up the musi­cal the­ater canon. Learn more about some of your favorite shows and com­posers as we cue the orches­tra, and the over­ture begins.

This mon­th’s episode fea­tures musi­cals that have been  hon­ored with the Pul­tiz­er Prize for Dra­ma.  The Dra­ma cat­e­go­ry of this pres­ti­gious award rec­og­nizes a dis­tin­guished play by an Amer­i­can author, prefer­ably orig­i­nal in its source and deal­ing with Amer­i­can life. It is an impres­sive list that includes every­thing from Gersh­win to Steven Sond­heim, to Lin-Manuel Miran­da.  The list fas­ci­nates as much for what is miss­ing from it as the shows that were honored.

Today Host Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er explores the list with a few side trips. Join us today: Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 19th at 2pm pacif­ic at the Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio The­ater on Chest­nut Hills, or tune in to lis­ten on-the-air, for The Mag­ic Of The Musi­cal:
