Live from studio on FMF online


Festival week filled with unforgettable emotions


A recital with Elliot Goldenthal, Sara Andon and Jeff Beal

On Sunday, 31 May, starting at 12 pm, join us in the beautiful interiors of ICE Kraków for Varèse Sarabande panel and recital by prominent artists: Elliot Goldenthal, Jeff Beal, Sara Andon, who will not only talk about film music, but will also play their favourite instruments. The meeting will be hosted by Robert Townson. This is another accompanying event, which is part of the 8th Film Music Festival.

Interest in film music performed live is much greater than ever. There is a vast variety of ways of performing it… from playing back the sound track, as closely as possible in its entirety, to playing it live, in synchronisation with the screening of the film, to composers creating entirely new concert pieces inspired by original material. Exactly as Erich Wolfgang Korngold wrote the masterful, internationally recognised version of the Violin Concerto for Jascha Heifetz in 1945.


During the panel "The Afterlife of Film Music" participants will discuss the process of arranging music written for specific film scenes in the process of transforming the score for the needs of live concerts and recording albums. They will also talk about how film music is transformed for concert halls, with the participation of outstanding composers, conductors, soloists and producers, who break barriers and create new categories of concert repertoires.


In addition to the discussion, the panellists will demonstrate their skill and artistry in the performance of film music. All fans of cinematic sounds are welcome to attend the Sunday afternoon panel and recitals. Admission is free. See you there!
