Notes & Reviews:

This collection features music from Hollywood blockbusters such as 'Harry Potter', 'Titanic', 'The Lord of the Rings', 'Death in Venice', 'American Beauty', and many others.

Notes & Reviews:

There's no way to put all the great music that has appeared in over a century of films into one set, but this collection from EMI Classics collects enough famous pieces to make most cinephiles smile. A mix of classical works used in films (like Also Sprach Zarathustra Op. 30 [Opening], now indelibly linked with 2001: A Space Odyssey) and score excerpts (like John Williams' "Star Wars [Main Theme]"), the set flows seamlessly from piece to piece. As the title suggests, 100 Best Film Classics leans more toward the classical side than the score side, which means it would also work well as an introduction to classical music for the film score fan looking to broaden his or her horizons. ~ Heather Phares
