The Music Behind the Movies

One of the overlooked treasures in our music collection is our movie and television soundtracks. We have an excellent collection that represents some of the legendary composers (Philip Glass, John Barry, John Williams, Itzhak Perlman, Quincey Jones, Thomas NewmanEnnio Morricone) from the past, those who have been working for some time and the inventive scores being produced from contemporary musicians that straddle both the world of film scoring and their own personal works (Jonny Greenwood, Jon Brion, Danny Elfman, Yann Tiersen, Randy Newman). Here are some of my favorite albums from the collection.

Good Bye Lenin by Yann Tiersen

Midnight Cowboy by John Barry

Schindler’s List by Itzhak Perlman and John Williams

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind by Jon Brion

The Hours by Philip Glass

Out of Africa by John Barry

Twin Peaks by Angelo Badalamenti
