Film music is an integral part of the art of music. A number of the finest composers have made their musical contribution to film – Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Korngold, Bernstein, Britten, Williams, just to name a few. Opera house of the Slovak National Theatre presented in concert the works by John Williams. Director of SND Opera, Rastislav Štúr follows on the tradition to offer our spectators a Summer gift – concert featuring film music by the Academy laureate John Barry. The event, conducted by SND Opera conductor Martin Leginus, brings on stage Slovak vocalists Celeste Buckingham and Martin Madej.

Barry received five Oscars for his music to the films Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, and for the title song Born free from the eponymous film. Yet it was his music to the eleven Bond films that earned him the greatest glory. Those compositions are the prime focus of our concert.

In The Living Daylights (1987), James Bond finds his way to Bratislava. In those days British film makers didn’t receive a permission to film in our city; hence, all scenes that were to be set in Bratislava were shot in Vienna. Today, however, 007 arrives in the authentic Bratislava in film music and title songs to the James Bond films.

The concert features fifteen legendary songs which we know as performed by such giants as Louis Armstrong, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra, Adele, Sam Smith, or Shirley Bassey.

The songs Writing´s On The Wall and Skyfall received Academy Award. The touching single We Have all the Time in the World is the last one Louis Armstrong recorded before passing. John Barry himself considered it the very best he had ever composed. Curiously, Golden Eye, performed by Tina Turner, was composed by Bono and The Edge from U2. Tom Jones continues to sing the mega hit Thunderball in the original key until today, what makes it an incredible 54 years!

All these, plus other popular songs from the Bond theme are on stage on 30 and 31 August 2019 in SND new building. The concert, as instrumented by Adrián Havran and conducted by Martin Leginus, features Celeste Buckingham, Martin Madej, SND Opera Orchestra and guest performers.
