'50 Best Classical Music in the Movies'
mp3 download ($5.99)

From the vast archives of EMI comes this regal roundup of orchestra tunes culled from the soundtracks of modern motion pictures. Some (like composer John Williams’ well-known themes to “Star Wars,” “E.T.” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” or the opening music to “2001: A Space Odyssey”) will be instantly familiar; others will require a bit more work to connect to song to movie. But there’s no easier way to link “The Big Lebowski” to Mozart, “Sherlock Holmes” to Schubert, “Pirates of the Caribbean” to Handel,” and many other classical gems to their big-screen counterparts, including “Lord of the Rings,” “The Social Network,” “Schlindler’s List,” “Titanic,” “Alien,” “Twlight,” and “Black Swan.”
