Virtually no other place epitomises the American dream “of plate washer to millionaire” more strongly than Hollywood. With the merger of films and musicals, a golden age began in Los Angeles in the 1920s. In the last few years, British conductor John Wilson has rescued and painstakingly restored numerous scores from this phase of American film history, which lasted until 1960. However, during this concert he will not take his usual place behind the baton of his world-renowned John Wilson orchestra, with whom he guest stars regularly during the BBC Proms, but instead get the Sinfonieorchester Basel “swinging”. Besides the melodies from famous film classics such as Gone with the Wind, Psycho and Ben Hur Tom and Jerry also needs to take pride of place.
