The Film Connection

  

For 10 years, beginning in 1938, six prominent composers moved from the confines of the concert hall to write for the screen—embracing the challenges of the medium and a wide range of subject matter.

It was, in many ways, a golden age of film music that would never be repeated. 

In this hour, music by Thomson, Vaughan Williams, Prokofiev, Alfven, Walton, and Copland.
