Conductor Gabor Hollerung tells us “The development of the moving picture revolutionized theatre and visual thinking. Similarly, the evolution of film music is a crucial element of 20th century music history. Obviously, the role of music was significantly determined by the technical possibilities from the age of silent movies throughout the gradual development of sound films.
Today, film is the most popular and easily comprehensible cultural product accessible by the largest number of people. Consequently, film music also enjoys a popularity that compares only to that of popular music these days. For serious musicians, the recognition that film music indeed claims a place in regular classical concert life was immensely important. Most of all because the best movie soundtracks are rooted in the genre of Romantic symphonic poem.
Music from the hey-day of Hollywood – by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Max Steiner or Bernard Hermann – or the most significant masters of our days, like Ennio Morricone or John Williams both in their musical contents and elaboration are comparable to the compositions of Wagner’s and Richard Strauss’s period.”
