Steven Spielberg’s original summer movie blockbuster Jaws will be screened at the Royal Albert Hall for the first time, accompanied by a live performance of the iconic score which won John Williams his first Academy Award®.

Upon its release, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time, and Spielberg has often credited Williams’ iconic score with much of the film’s success. Now audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time – the ultimate film-with-live-orchestra experience!

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Edward Gardner conductor
Carolin Widmann violin

Edward Gardner conducts the BBC SO in his first Total Immersion concert. Julian Anderson’s Eden (2005) celebrates the sculptor Constantin Brancusi while Imagin’d Corners (2002) revolves around Anderson’s attraction to the French horn. Carolin Widmann, a passionate champion of new music, joins the BBC SO for In lieblicher Bläue, a work that uses space in a way that only a live performance can reveal. Symphony (2003) is a study in immobility and gradual growth while Fantasias (2009) is, in Anderson’s words, ‘for all its wild contrasts, a celebration of the modern symphony orchestra’. Originally written for the Cleveland Orchestra, its virtuosity should prove a perfect climax to a weekend celebrating one of the UK’s most distinctive and original musical voices.



Julian Anderson : Eden
Julian Anderson : Imagin’d Corners
Julian Anderson : In lieblicher Blaue, Poem for Violin and Orchestra
