Movie trailer tunes hit Gotham, Moscow

"Trailer Music Live" sets international dates

“Trailer Music Live,” a concert of movie trailer tunes played by an orchestra and a choir, has staked out dates in Gotham and Moscow.

Show — a collaboration among composer Yoav Goren, the New York City Master Chorale and the NYU Symphony Orchestra — showcases and expands on music composed by Goren for use in movie trailers for pics including “Avatar,” “Toy Story 3” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.”

Concert also features clips from trailers to match the music, with, for example, segs from action-movie trailers accompanying a series of aggressive pieces.

Goren said he used studio contacts to secure rights to use the film clips during the performance and, as a graduate of NYU, found a willing partner for the concert in his alma mater’s Symphony Orchestra.

“Trailer Music Live” has previously been seen in London and L.A. The California gig was where Russian presenters first saw the concert.

“When I compose quote-unquote trailer music, I’ll do three or four minutes, but the audience only hears 15 to 20 seconds,” Goren said. “You’re always hearing it under explosions and dialogue.”

It’s to play Feb. 19 at NYU’s Skirball Center and April 17 at the State Kremlin Palace Center.
