The Ipswich Film Theatre may still be closed to the public but it is launching Score Masters, a dazzling online celebration of the music of top film composers John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith.
February marks the birth of both John Williams and the late Jerry Goldsmith.
The venue had planned a special weekend of films devoted to the work of both artists but transferred celebrations online with the support of web platforms The Legacy of John Williams and The Goldsmith Odyssey.
John Williams is one of the world’s leading composers thanks to his distinctive scores for the Star Wars movies, Jaws, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, ET, Superman and Jurassic Park while Jerry Goldsmith is best known for his work on Star Trek, The Omen, Planet of the Apes and Total Recall.
The event, available on the Ipswich Film Theatre’s YouTube channel, will feature discussions and contributions from Academy Award-nominated composer David Newman, Grammy® award-winning conductor Leonard Slatkin, legendary music recording engineer Bruce Botnick, known for his work with The Beach Boys and The Doors, as well as both Williams and Goldsmith, soundtrack record producer Michael Matessino, writer and journalist Jeff Bond, composer Leanna Primiani, and pianist/keyboardist Mike Lang, who has worked extensively with both Williams and Goldsmith.
