The Scintillating Sounds of Sword and Sorcery
Saturday, April 06, 2013
Tales of swords and sorcery have been lighting up screens for many years. These adventures can be traced back to ancient myths, and encompass movies from "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad" and "Conan the Barbarian," to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy; plus television shows such as "Game of Thrones." Brawn and magic collide in these rollicking stories of battle, intrigue and the supernatural.
Music has an important role to play in Sword and Sorcery films, underlining the dangers and triumphs, convincing us of the perils and magic. David Garland presents music from the above mentioned films, as well as "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad," "Yor the Hunter From the Future," "Hercules in the Haunted World" and others.
