Music from two Clint Eastwood films where the director also played a hand in composing the music; Mystic River and The Bridges of Madison County. Music too by the Canadian female composer Lesley Barber from Manchester by the Sea, plus the voices of Hugh Jackman in Oklahoma and Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl.
Aedín features three opera arias used to great effect in the films Fatal Attraction, Philadelphia and Wall Street, one of them featuring the voice of Maria Callas who was born on this day in 1923. A selection of duets too from Barbra Streisand with Jamie Foxx, and Judy Garland with Ethel Merman.
You can listen again here to Aedín's interviews with composer Michael Giacchino, 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)
