Our hand-picked showcase of music from films really celebrates the power of sound – sound with the power to provoke the most obvious to the most unexpected of emotions.

This pick-and-mix selection includes works either written for, or featured in, films from the dawn of cinema to today. Barber’s famous Adagio and rousing works by Schubert and Copland nestle amongst now-legendary western soundtracks, as well as others from comedies, horrors and thrillers. Each stands alone as an alternately enthralling, haunting, thought-provoking, moving, powerful or entertaining piece of music.
