Track: “Wouldn’t It Be Lovely”

Release Date: 1964

“All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.” — Julie Andrews
.
Shifting gears slightly from orchestral film score to musical film, here is the first in a short series of from stage to screen.
.
For the premiere stage run of “My Fair Lady,” the role of Eliza Doolittle went to the then unknown actress Julie Andrews. When Warners Brothers set to produce their film adaptation of the beloved Lerner and Lowe musical for release in 1964, director George Cukor decided on Audrey Hepburn over the untried Andrews. Midway through production, however, it was decided to dub Hepburn’s singing voice with Marni Nixon, who would also lend her singing talents in dubbing Nathalie Wood in “West Side Story.” The Academy took note and would award Julie Andrews Best Actress over Hepburn for her performance in “Mary Poppins.”

“"In the world of physics, the universe was formed by what’s been called ‘The Big Bang.’ One flash of cosmic brilliance that lit up the heavens and created all the stars and all the planets. But in the world of culture, we experienced another ‘Big Bang’ when W.K.L Dixon in 1892 working under the auspices of Thomas Edison invented the kinetoscope, which is the first motion picture camera. So in 24 flashes of brilliance each second, the movies were born. And if the movies are like lightning, then the movie written for those movies is thunder because there is no better marriage of mediums than film and music.” — Steven Spielberg

Track: “Duel Of The Fates”
Composer: John Williams
Picture: Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace
Release Date: 1999

“It’s indescribable, how he elevates every scene. He’s got to understand the emotion of the scene, the dynamics of whatever conflict we’re trying to portray, as deeply as an actor does. In a way, that’s even more complex. As an actor, you’re only one person, one instrument in the orchestra. He’s the entire cast.” — Mark Hamill

What makes John Williams a unique tour de force is not only how he crafts memorable film music, but also how he continually tops himself in long running film series. Four movies into George Lucas’ “Star Wars,” Williams once again raised the bar with the epic “Duel Of The Fates,” a stirring orchestral choral piece in the vein of the scenic cantata of Carl Orff.

"The damn music follows me everywhere. It was playing in the operating room when I went in for my colonoscopy.” — Harrison Ford

John Williams conducts the film’s finale in the recording studio. For the third installment in the highly successful “Indian Jones” franchise, Williams introduced several poignant themes to highlight the film’s story of family and spirit, including that of The Holy Grail and The Last Knight Themes.

Track: Main Title
Composer: Jerry Goldsmith
Picture: Star Trek: First Contact
Studio: Paramount Pictures
.
“I think that the great part of creativity is overcoming fear. Fear is a given. When you sit down and have to begin something, don't be afraid to be filled with fear, because it goes with the turf.” — Jerry Goldsmith
.
Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s music has colored many a diverse landscape, from the nightmarish deep space of “Alien” to the lush lands of Imperialistic China in “Mulan.” But it is Goldsmith’s iconic work on “Star Trek” that has stood the test of time, propelling the Original Series cast onto the big screen in 1979 and continuing with “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in 1987. Goldsmith’s soaring score allows audiences to take flight both on the big screen and at home. When the Original Series cast signed off officially with “Generations” in 1994, Paramount Pictures tapped Next Generation director and co-star Jonathan Frakes to helm “Star Trek: First Contact.” Captain Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) and the intrepid crew of the Starship Enterprise find themselves once more pitted against the nefarious Borg in their plot to assimilate Earth in the past and change its future.
.
But while “First Contact” is clothed in the garb of a space zombie action flick, the film’s humanity and soul is greatly elevated by a rousing main theme, a yearning pastoral number that underlines the historical significance of the titular first contact, but the instrumentation makes it almost militaristic at the same time as it does with many Goldsmith scores. The February 11, 2016 Prague performance of the film’s opening title and main theme are conducted by Chuhei Iwasaki and featuring the Filmova filharmonie.
