Notes and Editorial Reviews

What do Titanic and Les Enfants du Paradis, the films of Stanley Kubrick and Michel Deville, Charlie Chaplin’s Great Dictator dancing with a globe and combat helicopter fire in the films of Francis Ford Coppola have in common? Probably not a lot, apart from the predominant role played by music in most of the great films which have left their mark on the history of cinema.

The classical world has regularly provided cinema with music to which the public at large, not generally known for its enthusiasm for classical works, has often given great acclaim.

This 5CD boxset offers 72 masterpieces of cinema music from the past and the present. Some of the greatest classical composers (Mozart, Verdi, Vivaldi, Beethoven,

 "5 (NOT) easy steps" (discs) April 18, 2012 By Paula Apel (Santa Clara, CA) See All My Reviews "Disappointing, maybe my own fault for not investigating before purchasing..... I had hoped for actual sound tracks, but foremost because many of my favorite composers for films were missing from this collection: Vangelis, Patrick Doyle, Jerry Goldsmith, David Shire, and even Dolly Parton!!! What ever happened to Basil Poledouris? I do have Cinema Choral Classics.....it's the best of the various compilations I already have. Almost my entire cd collection is devoted to the classical composers so I hardly ever connect a "classical' with any piece from the movies, with the exception of the Ride of the Valkyries...
