Hollywood in Vienna 2014 - Comedy Tonight!
The worldwide much beloved MUPPETS guarantee best entertainment. And after exquisite British humor with MONTY PYTHON we enjoy music from the most successful sitcom THE SIMPSONS. We let ourselves be smitten by the unmistakable saxophone sound of PINK PANTHER and hear the charming voices of the choir, that introduce us to cult figure MR. BEAN. We listen to the romantic and cheerful score of SABRINA and travel back in time to the beginning of the 20th century, accompanied by the film music of RAGTIME and THE ARTIST.
The second part of the evening is dedicated to star composer Randy Newman, with popular melodies from MONK, MONSTERS INC. and TOY STORY.
He will join the orchestra on stage and perform his greatest movie hits himself.
A TRIBUTE TO RANDY NEWMAN
This year the »Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award« will be awarded to Randy Newman. The famous nephew of the ninefold Oscar-winner Alfred Newman is one of the most successful film scorers of our time.
He is especially renowned and well beloved for his numerous film songs that brought him two OSCARS, 20 nominations for the Academy Award and eight nominations for the GOLDEN GLOBES. He is also winner of six GRAMMYS and three EMMYS as well as honorary member of the »Rock and Roll Hall of Fame« (since 2013).
The younger ones among us know Randy Newmans music especially due to his music for the Pixar-Animation films »TOY STORY« or »MONSTERS, INC«.
The generation growing up without mobile phones will know him for his hits like »YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON«, »SHORT PEOPLE« or »I LOVE L.A.«.
