THE ART OF THE SCORE: Film Week at the Philharmonic

Experiencing Marlon Brando’s white-hot, Oscar-winning performance is reason enough to see multi-Oscar-winner On the Waterfront, one of the greatest films of all time according to the American Film Institute. Pair it with Leonard Bernstein’s shattering, Oscar-nominated score performed live by Bernstein’s own New York Philharmonic as the complete film is projected on a giant screen, and it’s a must-see.

David Newman

Composer & Conductor

David Newman is one of today’s most accomplished creators of music for film. In his 30-year career he has created the scores for more than 110 films, ranging from War of the Roses, Matilda, Bowfinger, and Heathers to the more recent Five Flights Up and Serenity. His music has brought to life the critically acclaimed dramas Brokedown Palace and Hoffa; top-grossing comedies Galaxy Quest and Throw Mama from the Train; and award-winning animated films Ice Age, The Brave Little Toaster, and Anastasia. Mr. Newman holds an Academy Award nomination for his score to Anastasia, and was the first composer to have a piece — 1001 Nights — performed in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s FILMHARMONIC series, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Mr. Newman is also a highly sought-after conductor, appearing with leading orchestras throughout the world, including the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra, San Diego Symphony, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and The Cleveland Orchestra. In the fall of 2017 he conducted the New York Philharmonic in the World Premiere live-to-film presentations of John Williams’s epic film series, Star Wars: Episodes IV, V, VI, and VII.

The son of nine-time Oscar-winning composer Alfred Newman and an active composer for the concert hall, David Newman has written works that have been performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Indianapolis Symphony, and Long Beach Symphony, as well as at the Ravinia Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, and Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival. He also composed a violin-orchestra suite for Sarah Chang based on songs from Bernstein’s West Side Story. Passionate about nurturing the next generation of musicians, Mr. Newman serves on the Board of the American Youth Symphony, a 51-year-old pre-professional orchestra based in Los Angeles, and in 2010 he served on the faculty of the Aspen Music Festival in the Film Scoring Program.
