    Liner Note Author: Royal S. Brown.
    A chronological tracking of the history of orchestral film music, this selection of National Public Radio's Milestones of the Millennium series brings together some of the most popular compositions of the 20th Century.
    Although music written to accompany film is often overlooked in academic circles, it has attracted some of the greatest composers of recent times: Sergei Prokofiev, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein are all present in this collection. Even those who cannot identify the composers will be able to pair the themes to the films. The emotional power of these pieces is what made them perfect for film, and what makes this collection an important history of music's evolving place in our culture.
