New York Philharmonic Hits All the Right Notes at the Movies

The New York Philharmonic currently is offering a lively all-Mozart affair, with excerpts from symphonic works, operas and the choral masterpiece, the “Requiem.”

But this isn’t a concert as such: It’s a night at the movies.

The Philharmonic is showing the Oscar-winning 1984 Miloš Forman film “Amadeus” with live orchestral accompaniment.

“The orchestra makes the movie better and the movie makes the orchestra better,” said Adrianne Silver, a longtime Philharmonic attendee who was on hand for this past Wednesday’s “Amadeus” presentation. (The program will be repeated through Tuesday.)

For the Philharmonic, such cinematic undertakings are becoming a key part of its programming. For the past five seasons, the orchestra has offered the screenings on an occasional basis as part of its the Art of the Score series, under the artistic advisory of the actor, classical-music enthusiast and Philharmonic board member Alec Baldwin.

Past presentations have included “The Godfather,” “West Side Story,” “Manhattan” and an Alfred Hitchcock event incorporating clips from several of the director’s films. The orchestra also has featured four of the “Star Wars” movies separate from the Art of the Score series.
