From the wilds of Arabia to the French Revolution, BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Singers bring together BAFTA-, Academy Award- and Golden Globe-winning films. This showcase has everything you're looking for in a night at the movies; Cult Classics, Spaghetti Westerns, Adventure, Comedy, Sci-fi, Drama and Romance.

On the bill: blockbuster Les Misérables with music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, French drama Les Choristes, and Maurice Jarre's highly acclaimed soundtrack to Lawrence of Arabia. Chosen for their atmospheric nature, Ligeti's Lux aeterna accompanied 2001: A Space Odyssey's mesmerising imagery and Messiaen's haunting choral motet O Sacrum Convivium featured in Stigmata. Plus a handpicked selection from celebrated Italian film composer Ennio Morricone, including Once Upon a Time in the West and The Mission.

BBC Concert Orchestra has recorded many film and TV soundtracks including Planet Earth, Africa, The Paradise, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Brighton Rock. Come and see them and BBC Singers at Watford Colosseum as they star in Europe on Film: Vive la Musique!

This concert is part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season; dedicated to exploring the composers, songs and film scores that form the soundtrack to the big screen. The season starts in mid-September with a brand new series on BBC Four, accompanied by three weeks of programming on BBC Radio 3. Further programmes take place on BBC Radio 6 Music, Radios 1 and 1xtra, Radio 2 and the Asian network.
