Directors have picked great classical concert works to enhance and underpin their films. If it’s Handel, there must be corsets and wigs! Mozart projects class and elegance, Rachmaninoff signals the weepiest of romances, and as for Wagner…scenes of bomb-spraying Valkyrian helicopters come to mind. Great art music can persuade us we’re experiencing history, identity and culture – but is it really all in the mind? We spend our first session exploring the impact film music can have on our subconscious response and plunge right in with some of the most iconic classical music moments in film history.
