2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the greatest science fiction films of all time, celebrated for its special effects and use of music. The film brought worldwide fame to Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra, accompanying a primeval sunrise, and the unnerving music of Ligeti. It also created one of cinema’s most memorable images: a spaceship floating serenely through space to the strains of the Blue Danube waltz. This is a unique chance to experience it with the thrill of full orchestra, organ and chorus, all live for those unforgettable moments.

Classic FM’s Anne-Marie Minhall, says of tonight’s concert:

A project like this shows exactly why the Philharmonia Orchestra is one of our great musical institutions. It prides itself on pioneering new and diverse ways of sharing music. Don’t miss!

Ex Cathedra is a Town Hall Associate Artist.
