The Edinburgh International Festival 2019 opened with a spectacular concert from the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conductor Gustavo Dudamel, celebrating the Golden Age of Hollywood.

We’re broadcasting Edinburgh International Festival’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Opening Concert tonight on The Full Works Concert with Jane Jones.

Taking place in Edinburgh’s Tynecastle Park, this free concert was performed in front of an audience of 15,000 people.

We’re proud to be partnering with the festival to record every note of the LA Phil’s opening performance, which we will broadcast in The Full Works Concert with Jane Jones, at 8pm tonight (Monday 5 August).

The concert features a selection of film music favourites – including a selection of works by the brilliant composer John Williams.

As well as iconic themes from Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and E.T., the night also includes Henry Mancini’s theme for The Pink Panther and Erich Korngold’s score for The Adventures of Robin Hood.
