iVisit.... St Georges Bristol for Hollywood, Classical Music at the Movies

  • St George's Bristol Great George Street Bristol, BS1 5RR U.K. (map)

From the 1930’s onwards, many ‘classical’ composers were lured to Hollywood to write epic scores – and to fatten their pay cheques. Even Stravinsky and Schoenberg flirted with the silver screen. This series will be an entertaining survey of the big names who balanced Art music with the world of film and of those who were deeply influenced by classical traditions.

The talks take place in St George’s main auditorium, supported by film excerpts on the big screen.
