Shakespeare On Film

Royal Festival Hall, London

Monday 4 April 2016

The BBC Concert Orchestra performed a selection of pieces from a variety of films based on Shakespeare plays, including music by Nino Rota, Shaun Davey, Stephen Warbeck and William Walton.  I created traditional notes for each item in the programme, offering an insight into each film, composer and the music.  I also wrote an introductory piece about Shakespeare’s influence on artists over the last 400 years.
