BRIDE OF THE WIND
Fans of Renée Fleming and Jean-Yves Thibaudet will be delighted to know that they not only provide some of the film's music in this film about Gustav Mahler's wife, Alma. Bride of the Wind also marks their film debut, so to speak - they make a cameo recital appearance at the end of the film. Music is by composer Stephen Endelman.

*OSCAR Winner for Best Music Score -2000*

Listening to the the truly East-Meets-West soundtrack of this award-winning score, with memorable cello solos by Yo-yo Ma, is probably the easiest way to be introduced to the unique musical ideas of Tan Dun, one of today's most creative and prolific cross-cultural composers.

SCHINDLER'S LIST
*OSCAR Winner for Best Dramatic Score -1993*

Itzhak Perlman's magnificent violin-playing tears at your heart and takes you through the gut-wrenching emotional journey of everyone on Schindler's list and those who were not. This is perhaps one of John Williams' most memorable scores, with a melody that never leaves you.

IMMORTAL BELOVED
A 1994 movie about Beethoven's secret love is a good enough way to give the unwashed a broad overview of the the great composer's music. It is masterfully scored, with excerpted performances by the cream of the crop of today's classical musicians - Murray Perahia, Emmanuel Ax, Bryn Terfel, Renee Fleming, etal -  with Sir Georg Solti conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.

AMADEUS Winner of 8 OSCARs - 1984, including Best Sound
Although it popularizes many "Mozart myths" that have been debunked, this movie is perhaps the most enjoyable introduction to the life and works of the musical genius of all time. The music is of course Mostly Mozart, superbly performed by the Academy of St, Martin-in-the Fields conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. It is known to have opened the door to the enjoyment of classical music for many people who were at best indifferent to it before. Now available also as a 3-disc box set which contains music from scenes not included in the original 2-disc soundtrack.
