THE ART OF THE SCORE: Film Week at the Philharmonic (September 16–20) made BBC Music Magazine's September North American Live Choice, a "guide to the very best concerts and opera around the U.S. and Canada":
The New York Philharmonic is sparing no expense with its second annual Film Week. Up first are two nights of scores ... from Italian cinema, including Fellini's 8½ (1983) and La Dolce Vita (1960) and Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso (1983). Violinist Joshua Bell, soprano Renée Fleming and singer Josh Groban are the soloists. Later in the week comes the complete score to Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1938), performed live as the film is screened in Avery Fisher Hall.
