Notes & Reviews:
For many their first encounter with classical music will be through its use in films and this 6-CD collection makes a fantastic entry point to this rich and diverse world. Helpfully all tracks list the films alongside the music, so there will be no doubt as to where the music is familiar from. Alongside two discs of popular favorites, there is a CD devoted entirely to piano music used in film, and another of opera favorites from the movies.
