Fenton and BBC Earth present 3 stunning productions
12th October 2012
Following the broadcast of The Blue Planet in 2001, for which he won Ivor novello, BAFTA and Emmy awards for Best Television Score, George Fenton created the show, The Blue Planet in Concert, which has toured both in the UK and worldwide, performed by many of the world's leading orchestras. Due to its success, Planet Earth in Concert was created in 2010 and premiered in the USA. This was followed in 2012 by Frozen Planet in Concert which received its world premiere at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. These shows have become unique presentations of the most remarkable film sequences, shown alongside Fenton's music played by world class orchestras.
Each of the extracts are linked by presenters, often Fenton himself from the podium, who introduce the audience to the footage, giving them amazing statistics and facts about what they are seeing, as well as a behind the scenes account of what it was like to create the films. These are not simply an abridged version of the TV series, but a whole production with a beginning, middle and end.
"a dizzying immersion into a glorious twist-up of nature, cinematography and music"
