Danish National Vocal Ensemble

Danish National Symphony Orchestra

Danish Radio Big Band

Program notes

The Danish National Vocal Ensemble, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and the Danish Radio Big Band join forces under the baton of Klaus Tönshoff to celebrate to the greatest classics of black and white cinema, from The Wizard of Oz (1939) to Pink Panther (1963) and Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).

Let yourself be dazzled by the talented mezzo-soprano Tuva Semmingsen, who rivals the iconic Judy Garland in her wonderful interpretation of Over the Rainbow. This concert, recorded at the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen in June 2020, offers a variety of performances that immerse us in the cinematic universe of the 20th century, including Mexican cinema with the revival of Cucurrucucú Paloma, music from the film Escuela de Vagabundos (1955). The creative lighting immerses us in a colorful atmosphere, conjuring memories of these films and their unforgettable moments. A little gem to listen to and watch as soon as possible!
