DISCOVER FILM MUSIC

Includes music by Steiner, Korngold, Herrmann, Newman, Copland, Williams, Barry, Elfman, Walton, Shostakovich, Morricone, Auric and others

- 2 CDs with 160-page booklet
- 25,000-word essay
- Timeline of events in film / film music, history, art & literature


As the 20th century approached, a new art form was developed, one that would go on to dominate the next hundred years. Though cinema began in silence, it quickly acquired sound and attracted musicians and composers. The new medium demanded a new approach, both aesthetically and technologically, but these problems were overcome remarkably quickly, allowing film composition to develop into a sophisticated branch of music-drama. This booklet-and-CD set outlines the history of film music, introduces some of the major characters, and shows how their music works in the context of film.
