Crossroads: Intersections of 20th Century Music and Film

Submitted By Nancy Tubbs

Music at the Mission presents a multi-media performance and film screening. If there's any art form born of the twentieth century, it is cinema. Along with this new genre came the film score. "Crossroad" explores the music of four composers who wrote for both the classical stage and the silver screen: Dmitri Shostakovich, Erich Korngold, Bernard Herrmann and Nino Rota. This program will present both classical chamber works and viewings of film excerpts accompanied live by our chamber players, and will explore the huge effect these classical composers had on the art of movie making.

Performers include: Robin Mayforth Violin, Karen Shinozaki Sor, Violin, Mike Corner, Clarinet, Emily Onderdonk, Viola, Michael Graham, Cello, Bill Everett, Double Bass, Aileen Chanco, Piano and Loren Mach, Percussion

The program includes:
Nino Rota Clarinet Trio op.28
Erich Wolfgang Korngold Quintet op. 15
Bernard Hermann Souvenirs de Voyage
Dmitri Shostakovich String Quartet no. 8
With Film Excerpts from: Battleship Potemkin (1926), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), Psycho (1960), The Godfather (1972)

Crossroads: Intersections of 20th Century Music and Film is made possible through the Musical Grant Program, which is administered by the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, and supported by the Heller Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, the San Francisco Foundation and San Francisco Grant for the Arts.
