About the Concert:

Can you hear music in space? It doesn’t matter – we’re going to take you on a musical journey throughout the stars in Space: The Symphonic Frontier. Join us on this adventure through the galaxy and hear for yourself just how, without Korngold’s Kings Row Fanfare and Holst’s The Planets, John Williams’s Star Wars may not have sounded the way we know it.

What’s Interesting About this Concert:

  • Kings Row is one of Korngold’s most notable works, and was also written for the film of the same name. John Williams drew very specific inspiration from this piece for the opening theme to his Star Wars soundtrack.
  • John Williams uses leitmotifs, musical themes or phrases that represent a specific character or object, throughout his scores to Star Wars (think Imperial March = Darth Vader).
  • Holst’s work depicts ideas and emotions of each planet in our solar system, all except for Earth. His own alleged favorite of the suite was Saturn.
