Dr. Rachel Franklin presents Magnificent Movie Music! In a new 4-part series “Classical Sounds of the Cinema” we explore this massive, yet barely-noticed component of movie scoring: the use of pre-composed classical music. Since the beginning of the “talkies,” directors have reached for the music library stacks. Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Richard Strauss, Mascagni, Bach… opuses of almost every famous composer can be found adding emotional depth to hundreds of films. Comedies, war films, romances, tragedies, you name it: all film genres have been enhanced with classical music.
