Film director Stanley Kubrick's use of classical music in his films was so effective that many people, when they hear the momentous strains of Richard Strauss' "Also sprach Zarathustra," can't help immediately picturing scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey. This weekend, actor Malcolm McDowell hosts Stanley Kubrick's Sound Odyssey as Jessica Cottis conducts L.A. Philharmonic in a weekend of classical selections from Kubrick's films, including 2001 (which also featured work by composers Ligeti, Johann Strauss and Khachaturian), The Shining (Bartók, Penderecki), Barry Lyndon (Handel, Schubert and Bach) and Eyes Wide Shut (Shostakovich, Ligeti), as well as lilting melodies by Beethoven that provided a soundtrack to the gleeful violence perpetrated by McDowell's character, Alex, in A Clockwork Orange.
