Brussels Philharmonic – Timothy Brock conductor
When Professor Mannfeldt discovers there is gold on the moon he builds a rocket to get there. However, power struggles soon develop among the crew due to the value of the gold. The American Timothy Brock composed new music for this story from Fritz Lang’s silent film Die Frau im Mond (1929). On this occasion he also wields the conductor’s baton, skilfully leading the Brussels Philharmonic, who are themselves accustomed to the accompaniment of silent films. In 2012 they won an Oscar for their superb soundtrack to the box-office hit The Artist.
