Film Music Fridays

Film Music Friday - June 26, 2020 (The Music of Film Noir)

This week's Film Music Friday explores the music of film noir - those cynical Hollywood crime dramas made in the 1940s and '50s. We'll hear excerpts from The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, The Big Sleep, The Killers, L.A. Confidential and more, featuring music by Max Steiner, Franz Waxman, Miklos Rozsa and Adolph Deutsch.

Film Music Friday - May 22, 2020 (Shakespeare in Film)

Brush up your Shakespeare on tonight's edition of Film Music Friday!  We'll hear music from various films based on or inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, including excerpts from both the 1944 and 1989 adaptations of Henry V, Russian productions of Hamlet (with music by Dimitri Shostakovich) and Othello (featuring a score composed by Aram Khachaturian), plus Shakespeare in Love, Much Ado About Nothing and even Kiss Me, Kate.

Film Music Friday - May 15, 2020 (Max Steiner)

This week's Film Music Friday looks at the career of composer Max Steiner, often called "the father of film music".  In 30+ years at Warner Brothers, Steiner wrote the scores for such classic films as Charge of the Light Brigade, The Informer, Casablanca, Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Adventures of Don Juan.  We'll hear excerpts from those and other film scores on this edition of FMF.
