Picture Perfect - February 8: Gothic Romances

Feb 8, 2019

Windswept moors.  Destructive passions.  Byronic guilt.  “Gothic romance” doesn’t necessarily mean “love story.”  We strike a blow against Valentine’s Day with music from movies featuring creepy old houses, ghosts, malevolent housekeepers, and madwomen in the attic, including “Rebecca” (Franz Waxman), “Jane Eyre” (John Williams), “Uncle Silas” (Alan Rawsthorne), and “Wuthering Heights” (Alfred Newman).  Keep Mrs. Danvers away from the matches, this Friday at 6 pm.

BONUS: Today is John Williams’ 87th birthday! Tune in early to enjoy some of his other film and concert works between 4 and 6 pm.
