  1. Wings - Carl Davis

Marking the centenary of both the end of World War I and the formation of the Royal Air Force, Carl Davis’s 1993 score is performed live with the classic silent film. In a small town in America, rivals Jack and David both vie for the affections of Sylvia Lewis. As romance starts to blossom, both men are called up to enlist and the pandemonium of war threatens to tear the lovers apart.

Winner of the first Academy Award for Best Picture, Wings was directed by pilots John Monk Saunders and William Wellman, and its exhilarating combat sequences – filmed from planes flown by the actors themselves – are further animated by Carl Davis's dramatic 1993 score. Davis himself takes the podium to conduct the Orchestra of Opera North in this special concert screening.

Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2018/2019.

Free Talking Music begins at 6.10pm
