Among members of the Newman family, the family business is movie music. Tonight on KPR's Film Music Friday we'll hear the work of two generations of talented composer-conductors, including brothers Alfred (seen above), Lionel and Emil, followed by Thomas, David, Randy and Maria Newman, all of whom have contributed music to films in various forms. We'll hear excerpts from Beau Geste, Island in the Sky, The Young Lions, The Shawshank Redemption, Skyfall and The Natural.
