Classic 100 Music In The Movies 4cd

ABC Classic FM’s annual Classic 100 survey is always a highlight of the classical music year, and this year’s edition, Music in the Movies, is the most popular yet. In just the first five days of voting, the number of votes had exceeded the final tally in any of the previous countdowns. The conversation
on the Classic FM website and on Facebook took off, with listeners swapping ideas and memories, likes and dislikes, and wondering in anguished tones how their favourites could be fitted into the
ten votes available…
All of us are children of the century of the moving image. Every generation for more than a hundred years has grown up with the movies, and music has always been part of that story. This survey covers both existing classical music that has been incorporated into film soundtracks, and music written specifically for the screen.
The broad palette of the orchestra is used to express the emotional complexity and layers of storytelling that characterise great film-making. Music in the movies can convey grandeur, portent, intimacy and pathos in a few bars. And like all great music, there is mystery at its heart: how is it, for example, that the best film music can somehow convince us of our nostalgia for places and times that we have never lived in?
This 4CD set presents selections from the original movie scores and from classical works
featured in more than fifty films: the top twenty, plus highlights from across the complete
Classic 100 Music in the Movies.
