The Music of Moroder

The Music of Moroder

An orchestral celebration of the Godfather of Disco with guest vocalists Anna Calvi, Shingai Shoniwa and Liela Moss, plus Giorgio onstage reciting his part from Daft Punk's 'Giorgio By Moroder'.

From Donna Summer and Daft Punk, to Electric Dreams, Scarface, Flashdance, and Midnight Express. This performance draws from a seminal catalogue of 13 studio albums, 10 soundtracks and 200 gold and platinum discs, re-working the 74-year old’s key musical motifs and signature synth melodies into a time-hopping presentation – celebrating Giorgio Moroder’s undeniable influence on popular music.

Credited with introducing synth to the world of disco, and having worked with the likes of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and Cher, Moroder was behind such genre-defining hits as Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, ‘Love To Love You Baby’ and Blondie’s ‘Call Me’ (all of which get special treatment in this show).The pioneering artist is also the musical genius behind the timeless film themes for Scarface and American Gigolo, winning Academy Awards for Best Original Score on Midnight Express and Best Song for both Flashdance’s ‘What a Feeling’ and Top Gun’s ‘Take My Breath Away’. Immortalised as the man “everybody calls Giorgio” in Daft Punk’s landmark album Random Access Memories (another tune that gets featured), Moroder’s work and brilliant career are currently enjoying a renaissance.
