Candlelight: Film Scores and Hollywood Epics
Music in movies not only plays an important role, but an extremely powerful one. It doesn’t just lead us from scene to scene, it creates a rhythm; but it doesn’t just accompany the on-screen action, it amplifies it; and it doesn’t just convey emotion or feeling, it draws us in and ties us to the journey of the characters—we become invested.
Hollywood epics—from Psycho to The Godfather, Pulp Fiction to Toy Story—have all taken advantage of music to elevate the story, the drama and the narrative to reel us in. And the music of these films and many more have become iconic in their own right. Pay tribute to some of film’s great composers including Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, Dick Dale, Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota with Candlelight.
