Program Info:
Beethoven Academy Orchestra

Polish Radio Choir
John Powell – evening host

Special guests: John Powell, Paul Williams

John Powell the main guest of the 13th FMF edition and the hero of the monographic concert.

The final evening of FMF 2020 will be a real icing on the festival cake – at ICE Kraków we will hear a long-awaited monographic review of John Powell’s work. This time, during the concert, the composer will also play the role of host of the evening, commenting and sharing with the audience anecdotes related to the presented works.

The British composer, who collaborated with with Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams, became famous primarily for music for animated films ( Shrek , Kung Fu Panda , Happy Feet: Patter of Little Feet ) and action cinema ( Italian Robot , Bourne Identity, Bourne Ultimatum , Mr. and Mrs. Smith , X Men: Last Bastion .) At FMF’s request, Powell will personally choose and prepare songs from his award-winning Oscar nominations, Grammy Awards and BAFTA achievements. Special guests will be invited to the concert, whom we will see and hear on stage, and the musicians will be led by a friend of the composer – already known to the FMF audience from previous editions – Gavin Greenaway.

The concert’s partner is the American Association of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), which has been cooperating with the festival for years, and that evening will be represented by its president Paul Williams – composer, actor and songwriter, Oscar winner (for the song Evergreen from the film A co-written with Barbara Streisand Star is Born from 1976), the Golden Globe (for the entire soundtrack for A Star is Born ), Grammy Awards and the World Soundtrack Award. Paul Williams has worked with such stars as Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Giorgio Moroder.

The final version of the program will be announced on March 2, 2020.
