The Danish National Symphony Orchestra

I’m a fan. Who’d thunk?

Grab a drink.  Sit back and relax.  You’ve never seen a concert like this one.

In January 2018, The Danish Broadcast Corporation (DR) aired a concert called “The Duel – Morricone Draws First” performed by The Danish National Symphony Orchestra /DR SymfoniOrkestret, The Danish National Concert Choir with various soloists conducted by Sarah Hicks.
The concert was hosted by singer/composer/author Kristian Leth.

The music performed were titles from a wide range of western movies and mafia movies reflecting different perspectives on an Italian-American movie and film music style.

Featured composers were Ennio Morricone, Bernard Herrmann, Nino Rota and Sonny Bono with music from films by Sergio Leone, Quentin Tarantino, Brian DePalma and Francis Ford Coppola.
