Film music

This is a splendid piece by Jessica Duchen, marking the twenty-first century's fastest trend in orchestral music in the concert-hall, recreating movie music tracks. The only quibble I have is that it is very Hollywood-centric, ignoring the great Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone and Russian and French composers for the cinema. Nor does the article mention British composers of the classic film period, but one cannot complain about the attention now being given to them in British concert halls.

I can also recommend Radio 3's Saturday afternoons with Matthew Sweet.
