One of the main sources of new music today is that written for Stage and Screen, a topic that often appears in both the GCSE and A Level music syllabus. But film makers do not only use newly composed music to paint a picture or heighten tension in their films, they also use pre-written music from throughout history to help them to create the mood or set the scene that they wish to convey.
In CYSE this year, we will explore some examples of Classical Music used in films from various eras and styles of Western Music, and see how well they sit within the film and help to tell the story. We will also look at the technical aspects of playing music form these eras and the background to the original works.
