CD 1 – Great Movie Themes:
The very best film composers in their most inspired music: John Williams (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman, Catch Me If You Can), Ennio Morricone (The Mission), James Horner (Braveheart), Michael Nyman (The Piano), Nigel Westlake (Babe), John Barry (Octopussy), Bernard Herrmann (Psycho), Mark Knopfler (Local Hero) and more.
CD 2 & 3:
Timeless classical music has become inseparable from our memories of the great movies, from 21st-century blockbusters such as Ocean’s Eleven (Clair de lune), 50 Shades of Grey (Spem in alium) and About Time (Spiegel im Spiegel), to the golden age of cinema: Picnic at Hanging Rock (Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto), A Room with a View (O mio babbino caro) and Brief Encounter (Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto).
Famous movie themes in lyrical arrangements for solo piano, including Cinema Paradiso, The Godfather, The Man from Snowy River, Schindler’s List and Doctor Zhivago.
