  Film scores on NPR   Friday, June 23, 2006 (8:26 a.m.) 

I happened to catch part of a film music themed show on NPR last night, featuring the New York Philharmonic (canít remember what the name of the show was). The first half showcased film score selections by Bernard Hermann and was narrated by Martin Scorsese. During the second half, the NY Phil performed selections by John Williams, narrated by Steven Spielberg. Both parts of the show were conducted by John Williams. The parts I heard were pretty good.

The show can be heard for a limited time at the following link:

I listen to their classical music selections at evening sometimes (although there's just not enough 20th century in their choices to keep me interested for long), as well as the interesting interviews they have going on from time to time (their interview with with 'Team of Rivals' author Doris Kearns Goodwin was great and I usually enjoy Fresh Air), but they're newsreporting is either too boring or just too unbearable (particularly the BBC-- bleeeaaack *snores* *wakes self up with snoring* ...bleeeeack *snore*).

Sayonara!

I agree, and now, because Mozart's 250, they're going to be overplaying his works all year! The deceased composer has my respect, but I can't stand his style. They should indeed play more of the likes of Stravinsky and Prokofiev.
As for the film score program, I've never heard of it and would be interested in hearing it. Fortunately, the conductor for the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, Robert Bernhardt, has his own show on Wednesdays, and he's a loyal fan and admirer of John Williams and film music, so he plays it every so often.

I rarely listen to the radio (which is kind of strange since I currently work in radio), but I do like classical music.
