One of my friends is studying at Yale.
And this brilliant young cellist is making me jealous!
Apparently he's taking a class that covers
Music in TV and Film.
For me this would be quite fascinating.
After all, how many brilliant pieces of music have you become familiar with
having heard them on TV or in a Film?
I have learned so much this way
and imagine that you have as well.
So the question is...
Have you any favorite soundtracks?
From Ellington to Metheny,
Badalamenti to Morricone
here are some of my favorite
film and sound:
A Farewell To Maria (Tomasz Stanko)
Cinema Paradiso (Morricone)
