The »International Film Music Symposium Vienna« will take place again on October 16th, 2019 as a side event of »Hollywood in Vienna« at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
On the occasion of the presentation of the »Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award« to Oscar winning composer Gabriel Yared, we welcome one of the most extraordinary composers of our time.
GABRIEL YARED has composed music for more than 100 movies. His greatest successes include his Oscar-winning score for THE ENGLISH PATIENT, French classics such as BETTY BLUE and L’AMANT as well as Hollywood blockbusters such as the Nicholas Cage film CITY OF ANGELS, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY with Matt Damon as well as COLD MOUNTAIN with Jude Law and Nicole Kidman.
Gabriel Yared himself will give a detailed insight into his work within a Masterclass for composers and musicians on October 15th.
Furthermore, we will be addressing educational possibilities in film music and the question of all questions: ”How to make money as a film composer?”. Additionally, we will focus on composing music for TV documentaries such as Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Universum and musical comedies.
Other guests of this year’s symposium include:
