It’s hard to imagine great movies without their equally great soundtracks...

...Modern composers have set the tone for countless films, including John Williams for Star Wars and the Harry Potter series, or Ennio Morricone for The Mission, from which the QSO will perform the famous melody Gabriel’s Oboe.

So expressive, so vital to the meaning of the movie, is it any wonder that concert composers have always been drawn to writing with stop-watch in hand and silent rushes on the screen before them? Net result? Melodies so sublime, and orchestral showpieces so exhilarating, that they define the music of our times.
