The power of the film score cannot be underestimated. From the early days of silent film accompaniment the score has been an integral part of film-making. Today the film score is often used to convey what the word cannot, a musical version of the Greek chorus, carrying the drama and emotions of the film in a subliminal, yet powerful way, manipulating the viewer to believe in and be carried by its story. But the film score should not only be considered from the point of view of film. The score has done as much for the development of popular music in the 20th century as it has done for film. Film has a worldwide audience and through this movie goers have unwittingly become accustomed to the development of all musical genres, as well as 20th-century classical music.
The work by the film composers featured in this title spans six decades and charts the development of film composition in the 20th century. In their own words, they convey their approach to this precise and complex art, and describe their musical sensibilities. The interviews are accompanied by film stills and some of their own scores, as well as a CD containing one major theme for each composer featured.
