For their traditional concert in the Waldbühne, the Berliner Philharmoniker rounded off the 2014/2015 season as usual with a programme that is particularly full of atmosphere. Sir Simon Rattle devoted himself to the genre of film music, something which is rarely heard in concerts with the Philharmoniker. The opener, the famous 20th Century Fox Fanfare, is a work by Alfred Newman, who won many Oscars and is considered one of the best-known film music composers of America. Miklós Rózsa was no less famous – he wrote, for instance, the music for Ben Hur, including what is probably the best-known chariot race in film history. And there’s Bernard Herrmann, who became world-famous through his work with Alfred Hitchcock (e.g., The Trouble with Harry, Vertigo, Marnie, Psycho).
