London New Year Celebrations 2014

London welcomed in 2014 with a spectacular multi-sensory fireworks display on the banks of the river Thames.  Special effects included fruit flavours and smells.  I recorded the fireworks from Storey’s Gate in Westminster.

I was very lucky to be invited by a friend to the UK film premier of “The Artist” at the Royal Albert Hall on the New Year’s eve.  This sweet and charming black-and-white romantic comedy, set in the 1920 – 30s, pays homage to the silent era and moves the audience with its storyline and music.

The most awarded French film in history, this silent movie by Michel Hazanavicius, was screened with London Symphony Orchestra and featured music by Ludovic Bource.

The Royal Albert Hall provided an exceptional setting for this celebrated film, that won five Oscars, seven BAFTAs, six Césars and three Golden Globes.

A unique black and white magic, an extraordinary choice of film sets at Hollywood actors residences, a brilliant act by Jean Dujardin as The Artist, George Valentin and Bérénice Béjo as Peppy Miller and the film’s music by French composer Ludovic Bource, reflecting the spirit of Hollywood, blended together in a star quality performance, full of joie de vivre.
