8m2 Introducing Herbert Stothart UnderScore

    • TV & Film

We devote today's episode to the Academy Award-winning underscore to The Wizard of Oz and its composer Herbert Stothart. His musical tapestry is a technicolor extravaganza itself - lavish, sensitive and irreplaceable.  Written with a stunning lack of ego, Stothart's score pushes powerful musical ideas into the spotlight, be they melodies of songwriter Harold Arlen, inspired excerpts from classical literature or the ingenious inventions of the composer himself. This is a score that takes advantage of every potential musical moment to lift the film upwards and upwards - to quote lyricist E.Y. Harburg - "to a place behind the sun, just a step beyond the rain..." Join us as we revisit the wonderful world of Oz, courtesy of Mr. Herbert Stothart.
