The epic melodies of John Williams’s moving Hymn to the Fallen (from Saving Private Ryan) and Hans Zimmer’s stirring portrait of noble sacrifice in Gladiator are counterbalanced by the sublime lunacy of Raymond Scott’s Powerhouse (the music which launched a thousand cartoons) and Paul Hart’s blistering soundtrack to an imaginary cartoon, dished up with enormous wit and panache. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm
