Movies and Musicals Saturday 16 August 2014
With Ennio Morricone in town this week, expect a sprinkling of Morricone tunes this afternoon from Cinema Paradiso to The Hateful Eight. Great songs from Chicago and Cabaret from the song-writing team John Kander and Fred Ebb. We meet with Sweeney Todd and Superman, we let it go with Idina Menzel and great scores too from Bridge of Spies and The Seven Year Itch
This afternoon, a triple play from the pen of Leonard Bernstein from West Side Story, On the Town and On the Waterfront. Two classic scores by Franz Waxman, Sunset Boulevard and Hitchcock’s Rear Window. We'll try some toot sweets in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and we’ll have a Jolly Holiday with Mary Poppins.
You can listen again here to Aedín's interviews with Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Angela Lansbery and composer, writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, responsible for the Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton and the songs of Moana. (Photo c\o Simon Lazewski, Foto Farm)
