Notes & Reviews:

Discover Film Classics explores the great film themes from composer such as Arvo Part, Beethoven, Wagner and Barber, from classic films like "Amelie," "A Clockwork Orange," and "Platoon."; The Discover Series from Berlin Classic aims to make classics popular, firing people up about the music presented, regardless of musical taste.; Rather than focusing on complete works, this series focuses on individual pieces that have rewritten our musical history.
