MGM MUSICALS CELEBRATION - BBC - JOHN WILSON - LIVE ROYAL ALBERT HALL
BBC Proms: A Celebration of Classic MGM Film Musicals
8/1/09 ~ BBC-TV - PLAYS IN THE US AND WORLDWIDE!
ñJohn Wilson and his hand-picked Orchestra celebrate 75 years of MGM musicals with songs from unforgettable movie classics, including The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St Louis, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, High Society, Gigi and Singin' in the Rain.
Amazingly, although all the original orchestral parts were lost when the studio destroyed its music library to make way for a car park, Wilson has succeeded in reconstructing the scores by painstakingly transcribing each soundtrack by earî. These BBC Prom shows are breathtaking as they feature amazing orchestrations usually played by a 70-piece orchestra and incredible vocal talent.
Starring: Kim Criswell, Seth MacFarlane (who knew he could sing?), Sarah Fox, Sir Thomas Allen, Curtis Stigers. 2 hours. (A)
