RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK - Live to Projection Concerts


Recommended Posts

The conductor Ludwig Wicki helmed 21st Century Orchestra from Lucerne Switzerland has been for years been performing various film scores (notably the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) live to the picture. This year they have several of these "Live" performances including Back to the Future, Ratatouille and Titanic. It seems they are also doing a 10 concert run of John Williams's Raiders of the Lost Ark in December 2015. :)

More info here!

P.S. My Deutsch is a bit rusty so I would appreciate if someone could verify this. The info page is a bit scant on the specifics but it looks like one of those Live! concerts the orchestra has been doing for some time now.

Alrighty, here's my report from my concert attending last week.   I went to Lucerne together with two dear friends last Tuesday (December 29) t

Here is a very good quality clip of the opening dozen minutes or so of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's live to picture performance of Raiders of the Lost Ark, conducted by Richard Kaufman.  Was this

It was great! The Pops really performed with gusto throughout.    The sound mix heavily favored the music at all times, which meant that occasionally you couldn't hear the dialogue in the mi

It seems to be exactly that :)

Damn, I've just bought tickets (and booked a short vacation in Lucerne) for "Back to the Future" in May, so I'm not sure if the budget will allow for Indy as well. Though I can't imagine money much better spent...

Thanks for the affirmation. :)

Not a fan of live-to-projection "concerts" (they aren't really concerts, IMO, just a fancy form of cinemagoing), but it's a cool choice for a project. Something a bit retro, but not silent film retro.

Now that doesn't make any sense!

Of course it does. Most of the audience will be engrossed in the movie anyway, and rarely pay any attention to the music. They could just as well have done like in the opera days where the orchestra performed in a pit.

Right. Those musicians on stage are barely noticeable and don't add anything to the experience at all. The fact that it's a live and organic performance is completely irrelevant.

I love these live score-to-film concerts. I try to attend them whenever I can. It's more than just cinemagoing, the sound effects are usually dialed down so that the musical experience really takes over the movie. Just yesterday my local Baltimore Symphony released their schedule and Home Alone live score-to-film is on the schedule in December.

Damn!

What orchestra? What conductor?

There is no mention, but my random guess would be the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra. If it turns out to be the LSO I will probably mess myself.

The 21st Century and Ludwig Wicki are probably the only ones crazy enough to do this twice in a day!

Would he have liked Prometheus, though?

I wouldn't have it as a signature pic if I didn't love the movie and yes Hitch is back
