The Edinburgh Film Music Orchestra (EFMO), the Scottish capital’s only orchestra devoted entirely to the performance of film music, continues its string of concerts in Edinburgh with a film music evening featuring the dramatic score to Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula composed by Wojciech Kilar.

EMFO founder Yati Durant will conduct the orchestra to Wojciech Kilar’s haunting score of Dracula, as well as to portions of his own critically acclaimed score to Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin and to Simon Hale’s video game score to L.A. Noire. Other musical surprises are expected.

Yati Durant, a composer and lecturer of sound, music and moving image at the University of Edinburgh, explained: “Our previous concerts have continued to show that film music is alive and well in the capital city. This programme promises to be thrilling and dramatic, not least because of Kilar’s dynamic score but also due to the enthusiasm of EFMO’s musicians!”

The concert will take place in Edinburgh at the Reid Concert Hall in Bristo Square on Tuesday, 26th March at 7:30pm. Tickets are £5/£3 and are available on the door. Visit the EFMO website for more information.
