“The stars of this program have been nominated for 73 Academy Awards and won 9. You know their work. But do you know them?”
“Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano” chronicles what happened when celebrated pianist Gloria Cheng challenged the world’s greatest film composers – Williams, Newman, Giacchino, Broughton, Desplat and Davis – to write original pieces for solo piano. No movie. No orchestra. Just Gloria at the piano. Be a fly on the wall for these once-in-a-lifetime recording sessions as we get to see these titans of film music like we’ve never seen them before.
