Cinematic: Heroes and Heroines with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
Hear your favourite tunes from 'My Neighbour Totoro', 'Captain Marvel', 'Star Wars' and more.
What do John Williams' Star Wars theme, Alan Silvestri's compositions in The Avengers, and Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard's score for Gladiator all have in common?
