Marco Beltrami to receive first Elmer Bernstein Award at 2nd International Film Music Festival, Cordoba

CÓRDOBA, Spain / February 27, 2013

In honor of the legendary film composer of such Hollywood classics as The Magnificent Seven, The Ten Commandments and To Kill a Mockingbird, the International Film Music Festival of Cordoba is excited to announce the institution of the Elmer Bernstein Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Art of Film Scoring.

The inaugural Elmer Bernstein Award will be handed out during a spectacular gala concert event to prolific composer Marco Beltrami during the 2nd International Film Music Festival, Cordoba, June 23-30, 2013. The son of Elmer Bernstein, Peter Bernstein, will be present conducting the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra in a Tribute to Elmer Bernstein before the festival presents a lengthy programme featuring the innovative and engaging music of Marco Beltrami.

Marco Beltrami, born 1966, is clearly one of the busiest A-list composers in Hollywood right now. Among his current and upcoming scores are A Good Day to Die Hard, Warm Bodies, The Sessions, The Wolverine and World War Z. Trained at USC under legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, L.A. Confidential, The Mummy), Beltrami enjoyed over-night success with his score for Wes Craven’s Screamin 1996 (he scored all three sequels as well). Like many succesful film composers, Beltrami first made his mark in the horror genre (Mimic, The Faculty, The Watcher) but is now a highly sought-after composer in virtually every genre. Among his most important film scores are Live Free or Die Hard, I Robot, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Hellboy and Knowing. Beltrami was nominated twice for the Academy Award, for 3:10 to Yuma and The Hurt Locker (shared with Buck Sanders).

Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004) was one the most influential and respected film composers in Hollywood for a period of five decades. He is credited with being one of the innovative composers of the “young” generation scoring films in the 1950s and 60s bringing in a clear jazz idiom into the traditional film music vocabulary. He scored hundreds of films and television series, always with his own distinct stylistic trademark, and won the Oscar for Thoroughly Modern Millie. Among his most popular scores are Ghostbusters, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Escape, Airplane!, Wild Wild West, Animal House, Trading Places, The Magnificient Seven, Bringing Out the Dead and An American Werewolf in London.

Peter Bernstein, born in 1951, is the son of legendary composer Elmer Bernstein. He is a prolific and versatile composer in his own right, with such film scores as Canadian Bacon, The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle of Endor to his credit.

On Friday, March 1, more details, including confirmed guests and events, will be announced by The 2nd International Film Music Festival of Cordoba on June 23-30, 2013.

If I wanted to go to Cordoba, it would be for the festival, the place and the fans. No offense to Beltrami, but I already met him in LA (he's quite shy). Great composer!

Easiest way: Flight to Madrid, Sevilla or Valencia and then Fast Train (AVE) to Cordoba from any of the three cities

Last year it was not very hot. In fact during the night concert we even had some cold

I also noticed that the guy that appears in all those Die Hard movies is the picture of DeputyRiley on the Board. Isn't it strange? wink

Well... it depends what you consider "cold". Something like 10-25C max is the best possible kind of weather for me... anything more is too much ;-) I can barely survive Prague in the summer with about 30-35C max... spain with 10 more and no place to hide... well... that's a nightmare.


Anyway, the guest list is very impressive... I would love to finally meet Marco after so many years of exchanging e-mails with him on regular basis.... Rachel Portman was also delightful to meet and is incredibly kind, lovely and also very shy... but one of the nicest people I've met so far. Ilan Eshkeri is also fantastic to talk to... so incredibly chatty... I bet you'll all love him...

Hey Thor... BUT did you HEAR his music live? I'm working with Marco on a 60 minute career-spanning programme which is going to ROCK!

My involvement in the festival is pretty big this year, producing three symphonic concerts for the festival: http://scoremagacine.blogspot.se/2013/04/academy-award-winner-mychael-danna-to.html - it is going to be a great event.

Guests include Roque Baños, Marco Beltrami, Peter Bernstein, Alfons Conde, Mychael Danna, Ilan Eshkeri, Rachel Portman, Zacarias M. de la Riva and William Ross... more announcements to come and watch this space for concert listings!

I'm trying to think, but I don't think I've heard his music performed live. I would have loved to see that. I wish the festival sticks around for a while, so that I'll be able to go in a year I can afford it.

Elmer Bernstein Award Gala Concert to feature
World Concert Premieres of the Music of Marco Beltrami


“It is uniquely significant that this award recognizes highly talented composers who are in mid-career, reaching their full potential, and whose greatest contributions to film music may be yet to come.” - Peter Bernstein

CORDOBA, Spain / June 11, 2013

• Marco Beltrami to receive first Elmer Bernstein Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Art of Film Scoring at the 2nd International FIlm Music Festival, Córdona, Spain

• Gala Concert to feature World Concert Premieres of brand new concert suites of Beltrami’s classic scores for I, Robot and Hellboy as well as the 2013 sci-fi adventure Snowpiercer and the unused score for Texas Rangers

• Peter Bernstein to conduct a grand symphonic tribute to his father, the legendary Elmer Bernstein, featuring classic scores such as The Ten Commandments, Ghostbusters and To Kill a Mockingbird


Marco Beltrami, one of the busiest film composers in Hollywood, will receive the first Elmer Bernstein Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Art of Film Scoring during a gala concert hosted by the 2nd International Film Music Festial in Córdoba on June 28. The award will be handed out to Beltrami by the son of the legendary composer, Peter Bernstein (a composer in his own right), who is also conducting a grand symphonic tribute to his father.

“It is an honor for me to be able to present the first annual Elmer Bernstein Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Art of Film Scoring,” said Peter Bernstein. “Throughout his life my father was dedicated to helping young musicians, and to protecting and preserving the art of film music composition. His 1972 article in High Fidelity Magazine titled ‘What Ever Happened to Great Movie Music’, along with creating ‘Elmer Bernstein's Film Music Collection’ of re-recordings of old scores in 1974, was significant in reviving and expanding public interest in film music, and the results are seen in this festival and award.”

Recognizing the unique approach to the Elmer Bernstein Award, Peter continued: “Late in his life when he was receiving life-time achievement awards he once said to me that it was a shame that someone should be honored only at the end of a career. Therefore it is uniquely significant that this award recognizes highly talented composers who are in mid-career, reaching their full potential, and whose greatest contributions to film music may be yet to come.”

Prolific Hollywood composer Marco Beltrami, born 1966, is one of the most sought-after composers in the film music business. This year alone, he has added the scores for major Hollywood movies such as World War Z, The Wolverine, A Good Day to Die Hard, Snowpiercer and Carrie to his resumée.

Produced by Mikael Carlsson, the Elmer Bernstein Award Concert featuring the Film Music of Marco Beltrami will see the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra and the Coro Ziryab conducted by Arturo Diez Boscovich present a number of world concert premieres of Beltrami’s music. It will feature brand new suites from I Robot, Hellboy, Showpiercer and Texas Rangers, as well as world premiere performances of selections from Knowing and A Good Day to Die Hard. The program also features music from Mimic and Soul Surfer.

The Marco Beltrami section of the concert will be preceeded by a Tribute to Elmer Bernstein, conducted by Peter Bernstein. This program features a selection of suites and themes from the legendary composer’s scores for The Ten Commandments, To Kill a Mockingbird, Ghostbusters, Far from Heaven and The Magnificient Seven plus a medley arranged by Peter Bernstein featuring rare themes from films such as The Journey of Natty Gann, A River Runs Through It, Desire Under the Elms and Stripes.

Marco Beltrami, born 1966, is clearly one of the busiest A-list composers in Hollywood right now. Among his current and upcoming scores are A Good Day to Die Hard, Warm Bodies, The Sessions, The Wolverine and World War Z. Trained at USC under legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, L.A.

hmm... maybe I should go... ... btw, any ideas how to easily get to Cordoba? There are no direct flights available...

You get on a horse and ride there with George Peppard and Pete Duel.

And take the cannon.



Joking aside, let me get this straight: they have a concert ...of Elmer Bernstein music...in Cordoba....but dont include Elmer's Cannon for Cordoba???? What a gigantic missed opportunity of ironic heaven proportions...!!!

I don't know where you would be starting from? Howsever, if you flew into Madrid or Malaga you could get the AVE high-speed train to Cordoba. I'm flying to Malaga, Cordoba is only a short train journey away from that lovely city. Cordoba is a fantastic city with many restaurants, bars, cafes etc where one can take refuge from the blazing Andalusian heat!

I think it will be a great Festival...no way was I going to miss the opportunity of attending a Tribute to Elmer Bernstein concert, especially as it's going to be conducted by Peter!
