In, Not From, The Movies

rl-160729squareOccasionally, a filmmaker uses existing classical music instead of (or to supplement) an original score. Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Oliver Stone have all chosen this approach at times. We’ll sample music that’s in, not from, the movies.

Summer Blockbusters

Big Screen Battles

rl-160527squareConflict is essential to story telling, and the greater the cinematic unrest, the more exhilarating the film score. On this edition of Reel Music, you’ll hear big screen battle themes from Glory, Braveheart, Gladiator, Star Wars, Robin Hood, and more.

The Bard on the Big Screen

ShakespeareThis year marks the 400th anniversary of the passing of William Shakespeare. In addition to his impact on theater, the old bard has certainly left his mark on the big screen as well. We’ll sample the best of the film scores from movies adapted from Shakespeare’s plays.
