BBC Concert Orchestra - Double Indemnity & Music from Film Noir

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

Join the BBC Concert Orchestra for a dramatic evening of music from the film noir greats.

A dramatic, dark and moody evening of music from the film noir greats presented by one of the UK’s best known film critics Mark Kermode.

Curated by conductor Robert Ziegler and featuring singer Hannah Waddingham, this is film music from the wrong side of the tracks including hits from Rebel Without a Cause and Double Indemnity.

Join the BBC Concert Orchestra at its brooding best when cult classics from Laura, Gilda, Sunset Boulevard and Dark Passage meet a ‘new noir’ genre with Badalamenti’s Fire Walk with Me from Twin Peaks and the world premiere of Jonny Greenwood’s Concert Suite from Inherent Vice.
