Our hand-picked showcase of music from films really celebrates the power of sound – sound with the power to provoke the simplest to the most subtle 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 a soundtrack of Ennio Morricone, 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.
