THE SYMPHONIC JAZZ CONCERT (powered by Film Fest Gent) CELEBRATES THE CENTENARY OF JAZZ WITH A ‘CLASSICS NIGHT’: HONOURING THE JAZZ SOUNDTRACK CLASSICS

This year the World Soundtrack Awards Gala, held on Wednesday October 18th and the Symphonic Jazz Concert, held on Thursday October 19th, both powered by Film Fest Gent, will focus on the incredible influence of jazz music on the art of film scoring from the past and the present.

Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé will perform compelling classical and contemporary jazz scores, accompanied by film clips on the big screen.

Symphonic Jazz Concert – Classics Night – Thursday October 19th

We look back at the thrilling scores and tunes from legendary jazz scores of the past. Expect some tunes by Henry Mancini, one of the most adroit instrumentalists ever to work in films; some themes by Lalo Schifrin whose clever inventiveness colours his TV scores for Mission Impossible and Mannix; Elmer Bernstein’s striking jazz score for The Man With the Golden Arm; the jazzy rollicking Who Framed Roger Rabbit? score by Alan Silvestri, a composer with a chameleon personality. And much more!
