L.A. Phil Does L.A. Films
David Newman to conduct May 13-15

The Los Angeles Philharmonic will present "Soundstage L.A.," a program of music from movies set in Southern California, at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 15, at Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.

Oscar-nominated composer David Newman will conduct excerpts from the scores of:

  • Double Indemnity (Miklos Rozsa, 1944)
  • Sunset Boulevard (Franz Waxman, 1950)
  • The Bad and the Beautiful (David Raksin, 1952)
  • Them! (Bronislau Kaper, 1954)
  • Rebel Without a Cause (Leonard Rosenman, 1955)
  • Chinatown (Jerry Goldsmith, 1974)
  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Alan Silvestri, 1988)
  • The Grifters (Elmer Bernstein, 1990)
Several of these scores have not previously been performed in a live concert setting.

In the case of Chinatown – the theme of which was featured in Goldsmith's frequently performed "Motion Picture Medley" – Newman went back to Goldsmith's original scores and has constructed a 10-minute suite that will receive its world premiere on May 13. He also consulted with Silvestri in assembling a suite of highlights from Who Framed Roger Rabbit that will be heard for the first time that weekend.

Film-music historian Jon Burlingame will moderate the "Upbeat Live" pre-concert talks, discussing the music and the composers. Composer Bruce Broughton will be his guest on Friday and Saturday, and Newman will join him on Sunday.

All three concerts are reportedly nearly sold out. Some seats may still be available by contacting the box office at www.laphil.com or by phone at (323) 850-2025.
