Classic FM at the Movies PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Classic FM at the Movies free pdf The soundtrack to a film is just as important to its success as its pictures, and the best films have great music chosen, or specially written, for them. Not only have many classical masterpieces become more famous and better loved as a result of their use in films, but many pieces of film music have become classics in their own right. People love listening to film music - nearly half a million listeners a week tune in to 'Classic FM at the Movies' with Simon Bates, and film music compilations sell in their millions. 'Classic FM At The Movies: The Friendly Guide to Film Music' gives a friendly, jargon-free overview of film music, from the early days of the music that accompanied the 'silent' movies through to the bright young composers of today. It contains descriptions, analyses, lists, trivia, quotes and easy-to-use timelines to create a picture of the development of a century of film music. The book is accompanied by a CD of 20 essential movie tracks - 10 written especially for the cinema and 10 popular classics that have been used in films. The author, Rob Weinberg, produced 'Classic FM at the Movies' for its first ten years. He also writes the monthly film music page in Classic FM Magazine.
