Mr. West - Composition for Metropole Orchestra
2011 was the 40th birthday of the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the 100th anniversary of the first composed film music. To celebrate this, 17 composers were asked to write a film score for the silent Russian classic ‘The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in The Land of The Bolsheviks’. (That’s quite a mouthful.)
It was performed live several times by the world-famous Metropole Orchestra.
