Join us on May 19, 2017 as the Academy of Scoring Arts welcomes renowned composer Joe Kraemer (Jack Reacher, Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation) to the next LA Ravel, where he will give us insights into his life and work. We’ll also take a look at the colorful tone poem The Pines of Rome (1924) by Italian composer Ottorino Resphigi. This four-movement work for orchestra depicts pine trees in four locations in Rome at different times of day, and contains wonderful composition and orchestration insights for all modern composers. It has been featured in films such as Fireworks and Fantasia 2000, and was a major influence on film composer Basil Poledouris in his 1982 score for Conan the Barbarian and also John Williams, whose Krypton music in Superman was strongly modeled after the fourth movement of this piece.
