Star Trek Live in Concert

 

For the grand finale of the Krakow Film Music Festival we have prepared an
extraordinary live performance of the American space-opera Star Trek (2009),
directed by J.J. Abrams with monumental music from the Oscar winner Michael
Giacchino. At a time when Kennedy’s visionary calls for space exploration
and conquest were inspiring new discoveries and feats, the crew of the
U.S.S. Enterprise explored uncharted intergalactic territories on the silver
screen. The Star Trek series occupied a special place in Western culture,
becoming an integral part of modern mythology.

 

Michael Giacchino, composing the music for the film, did not have an easy
task. He had to deal with the great predecessors and their musical
imaginings of the world portrayed in the series (Jerry Goldsmith, James
Horner and Cliff Eidelman). Especially for the simultaneous projection on
screen, Giacchino has created a significant amount of new music, which we
wouldn’t be able to hear in the original version of the film. This composer,
famous for his elaborate use of brass instrumentalization, fully develops
the potential of nearly 200-member orchestra and choir. The TAURON Arena Krakow
will be the site of our two-hour journey into space, where Ludwig
Wicki, along with Sinfonietta Cracovia and the Pro Musica Mundi Choir will
guide us through a unique musical journey.
