Cinematic Escapes by New Century Chamber Orchestra, Daniel Hope and Alexey Botvinov

Alexey Botvinov will take part in the “CINEMATIC ESCAPES” concerts series which will perform in the United States soon. Along with the New Century Chamber Orchestra and its director, conductor and soloist Daniel Hope, they will present concerts that will take place in very significant places in San Francisco area, as follows: Herbst Theatre, San Francisco, CA, U.S.A., the concert halls of Stanford University and Berkeley University.

From the ominous fog horns of the San Francisco Bay in Hitchcock’s Vertigo to the chaotic city streets of Gershwin’s An American in Paris, New Century puts you at the heart of the drama with a selection of music from iconic films. Chinese composer Tan Dun, Oscar winner for his score to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, weaves athletic percussion and graceful melodies into his Double Concerto, featuring Ukrainian pianist Alexey Botvinov and Daniel Hope. A celebration of the American West completes the program with a special arrangement of music by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone.

The concert program will comprise:

  • Soundtrack by Bernard Herrmann from the iconic movie “Vertigo” filmed in San Francisco by Alfred Hitchcock.
  • “Double Concerto for Violin, Piano, and String Orchestra with Percussion” by the Oscar-winning musician and composer Tan Dun (the European premiere of which was presented at the “ODESSA CLASSICS” festival in 2021).
  • “Concerto No.3 for Piano and Orchestra” by Philip Glass.
  • Ennio Morricone`s music from movies.
