A film in music: A few notes are enough to conjure up Scarlett O’Hara kissing Rhett Butler, or the ending to a western. The film scores of Max Steiner and Ennio Morricone immortalised Clark Gable and Claudia Cardinale. Now the Tonkunstler Orchestra, film music expert Frank Strobel and violinist Vadim Repin bring the sounds of the big screen to the Wolkenturm. The Wiener Comedian Harmonists are the «preview» to the main feature in the prelude.
