This week, we are going to take a 100 year journey back in time and listen to one of my favourite orchestral piece by Dvorak.
Symphony No. 9 – From the New World, 4th movement by Antonin Dvorak.
Hollywood composers love this guy. You’ve most likely heard bits and pieces of his music in movies you have seen.
Don’t think so? To name a few…surely you must have seen Jaws, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park or Harry Potter?
Well if you haven’t you’re missing out on some epic soundtracks used in those films.
Well, what does anime think of this guy? Surprisingly, his music is also used in many anime series too. Most notably in One Piece, during Luffy’s final battle with Crocodile. Other series included Legend of Galactic Heroes, Mamoru-kun, Princess Tutu, Gaiking and Bobobo-bo-bo-bobo(yes that last one is an anime).
Also I’m in charge of screenings and writing trivia this week!
Sooo…if you come to the screenings, you might be able to cheat a little for trivia* :)
