Everyone loves the music of John Williams, the world’s most famous film composer, and whether he’s in a galaxy far, far away, or capturing the energy of 1960s jet travel in his brilliant Escapades, he takes you right to the heart of every story he tells. And so too does Mozart – writing a sunlit symphony for a party in his native Salzburg, and taking centre stage as soloist in one of his own delightfully witty and poetic piano concertos. Sadly, Mozart can’t be with us himself, but pianist David Greilsammer, recognised by The New York Times as "One of the most accomplished and adventurous musicians of his generation", is very definitely the next best thing to embark on an adventurous classical x film journey!

約翰・威廉斯是世上最著名的電影作曲家,作品膾炙人口。無論他身在遙遠的銀河系,還是在精彩萬分的電影《捉智雙雄》裡,捕捉1960年代乘坐噴射機遨遊天際的動感,每次說故事,總有把大家帶到故事重點的能耐。莫扎特也一樣──有一次,他家鄉薩爾斯堡舉行聚會,他為這個場合寫作了一首陽光充沛的交響曲,還有一首風趣機智、充滿詩意的協奏曲,親自擔任獨奏,成為眾人焦點。雖然莫扎特作古已久,無法親自為大家演奏,但由《紐約時報》譽為「這一代最成功和最具冒險精神的音樂家之一」的鋼琴家格拉斯曼演奏,也不遑多讓啊!
