when music for the silver screen strikes gold

Where film music sits in relation to classical music is not always clear-cut. Is it just ultra-programmatic orchestral music? Does its association with what’s happening on screen constrain or enrich it? Does it – can it – stand alone in its own right? The answer, of course, is that it depends on the score; like all music, some of it will be brilliant, some not so much. What is clear is that those who dismiss movie music as something separate, lesser even, are not only ignoring its often extraordinary creative power, but also denying themselves some really rewarding musical experiences. And now we have Anne-Sophie Mutter, one of our age’s greatest violin virtuosos, telling us so. Our columnist, Edward Seckerson, recalls this month how, as a child discovering music, he met with…

NEIL FISHER found meeting Anne-Sophie Mutter to be a revealing experience. ‘“Are you a soloist or a musician who sees the entire cosmos?” I’d assumed she stood more in the first camp. But it was she who posed the question and, as her new album proves, she has her eyes on the whole musical universe.’ ‘Kirill Petrenko is an elusive and interview-shy maestro,’ admits HUGO SHIRLEY, who writes our profile piece this issue, ‘but speaking to musicians who have worked with him helped me to build an intriguing picture of what sort of a conductor he is and what his new reign at the Berlin Philharmonic might bring.’ ‘It was fascinating to talk to Benjamin Wallfisch about his film-composing process,’ says JAMES MCCARTHY, author of this month’s feature on film music. ‘Thanks…

for the record

The London Philharmonic Orchestra has announced that Edward Gardner will be its next Principal Conductor. Gardner is the first British conductor to hold the post since Sir John Pritchard stepped down in 1966; he will take up the role at the start of the 2021-22 season, initially on a five-year contract. He will succeed Vladimir Jurowski, who has held the post since 2007, and who will become Conductor Emeritus. No stranger to London audiences, Gardner led English National Opera from 2007 to 2015, whereupon he became Principal Conductor of the Bergen Philharmonic. He’ll be even less of a stranger to listeners to recordings: largely stemming from his relationship with the Chandos label, Gardner can be heard in many superb albums of repertoire including Walton, Grieg, Britten, Schoenberg and Szymanowski, while his recording…
