Miami Symphony presented the sixth annual installment of Golden Sounds from Hollywood


In one of the more anticipated concerts of the season, The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) presented the sixth annual installment of "Golden Sounds from Hollywood" on, March 8 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

As a five-year-old boy growing up without a TV in Caracas during the 1950's, Eduardo Marturet watched cartoons on film through a home projector as they played out in silence. “I made up my own music in my head. My ear couldn’t cope with the silence,” said MISO's renowned conductor, composer and Music Director.

Maestro Marturet compensates for the days of inferior soundtracks by conducting a program that features works written specifically for motion pictures, and combining actual projections from the film onto the stage of the Knight Concert Hall. Executive Producer Fernando Duprat adds visual elements of excitement to Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra from Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey," Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries from Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now" and the soundtrack from Steven Spielberg's "E.T.," among many more popular and recognizable films.

“Music adds a tempo that’s different from the tempo of the visual action within the picture itself, so you have a counterpoint between the tempo of the music and the tempo of the visuals," Marturet states. “What is a successful film score? It’s something that is linked to the movie, but it can live outside the movie - like with Sidney Pollack's Sabrina. The theme from John Williams' score is so beautiful, it works. You don’t need the image."
