The Silver Screen Soundtrack Hour: “Westerns – Take Two!”
Time: 9:00 am
The glory days of the western may have moved on, but the legacy of music written for this venerable genre endures.
Following up our previous episode of classic western soundtracks, this new show, premiering on March 2, dives into the rich library of western film music with selections from classic movies and some lesser-known entries.
On this week’s show you’ll hear clips from Rio Bravo, Wyatt Earp, The Halleluiah Trail, How the West Was Won, and other films, featuring composers Dimitri Tiomkin, Alfred Newman, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, and more.
Produced and hosted by Ken Nail, The Silver Screen Soundtrack Hour airs on Charlottesvilleclassical.org every Thursday at 9 AM and 6 PM, plus Saturdays at Noon. Tune in and enjoy!
