Many of us have seen the movies Psycho, Vertigo, Taxi Driver, Citizen Cane, Adventures of Robin Hood and Deception and we all remember the beautiful soundtracks, that accompanied the motion pictures, but not many of us know, that the famous movie composers such as Herrmann and Korngold also wrote chamber music works of incredible beauty!

Giya Kancheli on the other hand is mostly known in the west as a symphonic composer, but back at home in Georgia, his movie and theatre music is dear to everyone’s heart. In this program you will hear the classical, chamber music works of all above mentioned composers, but still the shadows of the familiar harmonies and melodies will remain recognizable and will haunt us with the well-known images from behind the movie screen.
