Whether you’re familiar with his work in science fiction films like Inception and Interstellar or the epic The Last Samurai, one thing is guaranteed: you’ll revisit some of the most memorable moments in cinema history as you’re surrounded by hundreds of flickering candles. The talented musicians of String Infusion will take on these scores and many more in celebration of the living German legend.
If you want more movie magic, there’s a new tribute to some of the most successful and fantastical movies that have captured our hearts since our childhoods.
