Why: Bond and classical music in a sophisticated concert setting? All I can say is, what an unexpected and awesome combination!

The Music of James Bond
Carl Davis, conductor
Mary Carewe, vocalist
You’ll be both shaken and stirred by the powerful theme songs from classic James Bond films like Goldfinger, Casino Royale, Dr. No, and others.
Film composer and conductor Carl Davis leads the NSO through an impressive array of musical selections from the James Bond films from 1962’s Dr. No through 2006’s Casino Royale.
When a new Bond movie is announced, the first question in fans’ minds is “Who’s playing Bond?” The next question is “Who’s writing the new theme song?” A list of past performers of these iconic power ballads reads like a Who’s Who of popular music: Paul McCartney, Nancy Sinatra, Carly Simon, and the White Stripes have all taken their turn with 007.”
