Movies and Musicals Saturday 3 March 2018
Thomas Adès is known for his classical compositions but recently wrote his first film score for Colette based on the life of the French novelist Colette, starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West. Aedín takes a listen this afternoon and also includes a selection of scores from the pen of Hans Zimmer ahead of his Dublin concert on Monday including Gladiator, Interstellar and The Lion King. We’ll also remember Deborah Kerr in The King and I, An Affair to Remember and From Here to Eternity.
Aedín marks the birthday tomorrow of Christopher Walken with music from a selection of his films, including Catch Me If You Can and Hairspray. Plus a new cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Follies, the 2018 National Theatre of London production, which won the Olivier award for best Musical Revival. A top notch cast including Imelda Staunton, Janie Dee and Philip Quast with hit songs including Broadway Baby, Could I Leave You and Too Many Mornings.
You can watch or listen again to Aedín's interviews with Kenneth Branagh, Mark Hamill, composer Michael Giacchino, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Angela Lansbury and Hamilton composer, writer and actor, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Plus recent interviews with Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall, stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Whishaw, and the composer and lyricist team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
