ROCCO de Villiers – Music at the Movies – Jo’Burg Season 2022
Pianist Rocco de Villiers brings a collection of the most adored movie theme tunes ever. He is thrilled to share the stage with violinist extraordinaire Lizelle le Roux. He shares his love of the film genre, strange facts about some films and even celebrates the underdogs of the film world – the lesser known movies and their actors.
Rocco also plays some of the music from the movie in his mind. And the movies in everyone’s mind. Says Rocco, “ All lives are worth making a movie about, and is always accompanied by music. The soundtrack to our own lives”.
Expect the usual suspects and of course surprises : scent of a woman, CHARIOTS OF FIRE , cinema paradise, DR ZHIVAGO, as it is in heaven, THE PIANO, st elmo’s fire, SCENT OF A WOMAN, ladies in lavender, LOVE STORY, endless love, GABRIEL’S OBOE, schindler’s list, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, forrest gump, DOWNTON ABBEY, il postino, , MY HEART WILL GO ON. And so does the list of theme tunes we got to know, love and listen to.
