Sautrday 30th September
Tonight, Andrew Collins rounds off a week-long celebration of the London Symphony Orchestra – Classic FM’s Orchestra in the City of London – by selecting some of the LSO’s finest film recordings.
The focus will be on three world-famous film composers who have conducted the orchestra on many recording sessions: Alexandre Desplat, featuring his music for The Imitation Game and Harry Potter; the late James Horner, including Braveheart; and perhaps the most famous LSO film partnership of them all, with John Williams and the music of Star Wars.
