Share this event:


Leonard Slatkin serves as narrator, conductor, and pianist in a tribute to Hollywood movie music of the 1940s and '50s as well as to his parents, violinist Felix Slatkin and cellist Eleanor Aller, leading film and recording musicians of the era and founders of the Hollywood String Quartet. Slatkin leads an ensemble comprising members of Dempster St. Pro Musica (most also members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra) and the Chamber Music Society of St. Louis, who perform chamber music by Miklos Rozsa, Erich Korngold, Nino Rota, Enrico Morricone, Franz Waxman, Aaron Copland, and Leonard Bernstein. To acknowledge the close friendship between the Slatkins and Frank Sinatra, vocalist Tom Heitman performs selections from Sinatra's
groundbreaking album Close to You, accompanied by string players using the original Hollywood Quartet orchestrations.
