Stewart Copeland unleashes a soundtrack for MGM silent film Ben Hur


Stewart Copeland unleashes a mighty soundtrack for the epic 1925 MGM silent film Ben Hur to be performed live at the Virginia Arts Festival on Easter weekend 2014
One of the most impressive feats in Hollywood history, MGM’s
Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ (edited for the concert stage) has inspired a new score from Stewart Copeland.

Copeland has been commissioned by The Virginia Arts Festival to create and perform the score for the Silent Era’s most expensive film production starring 1920’s matinee idol Ramon Novarro. It will be performed live on stage with the Virginia Arts Festival Orchestra with Richard Kaufman at the podium. This explosive musical experience will premiere at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, April 19 at 8pm. Tickets $20–$60; click here to learn more.

In addition to being one of the most renowned rock drummers of all-time, Stewart Copeland has also received accolades as a composer of film scores, concert works, ballets and operas, including commissions from Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and Long Beach Opera.

Looking for a second life for orchestral music that he had created for the 2009 Ben Hur Live arena show that played across Europe, Copeland became entranced with the 1925 Fred Niblo film, still considered one of Hollywood’s crowning achievements. “It’s a silent movie, which is cat nip for a composer, and the wild action scenes are nitroglycerin for a drummer,” says Copeland. His musical approach revels in the excitement of the pirate ship battle and chariot race while never losing sight of the tale’s underlying themes of hope, love and redemption. 

 

According to Copeland, who grew up for the first 14 years of his life in Lebanon, he summoned his earliest musical impressions to bring a strong ethnic element to the score using Middle Eastern rhythms, modes and instruments.  

At the April 19 premiere, Copeland will perform with the 90-member Virginia Arts Festival Orchestra conducted by Richard Kaufmann.
