Notes & Reviews:

Music's impact on movies is undeniable. It enhances the total film experience. With this collection of 17 tracks we have gathered a wide range of classical pieces from an interesting mix of well known and highly acclaimed films. Let Chopin's Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor remind you of Adrien Brody's incredible performance in The Pianist. Hear Barber's beautiful and evocative Adagio for Strings from the film Platoon.
