John Wilson and his orchestra return to the Proms in a celebration of the Hollywood film scores that Wilson describes as ‘literally unsung’ and a medley of theme songs (featuring distinguished vocalists) from otherwise non-musical movies.

Connecticut-born child prodigy Alfred Newman’s ‘Street Scene’, from How to Marry a Millionaire, contrasts with the music of Jewish émigrés Erich Korngold, Max Steiner and Franz Waxman, with suites from Korngold’s swashbuckling score for Robin Hood, Steiner’s nostalgic music for Casablanca and Waxman’s brooding score for A Place in the Sun – all of them Academy Award-winners – making for a red-carpet event at the Royal Albert Hall.
