From Bach and Puccini to Tchaikovsky and Bizet, classical music composers have been inspiring filmmakers over the years. Their influence, feelings and sensibility find their way onto the silver screen and help filmmakers express themselves.
Classical music combined with moving images has made for many a cult scene in the history of cinema - not to mention the masterpieces of opera, which have generated many stories and subjects for films. The theme of classical music and cinema illustrates a priceless reciprocity. And while composers inspire filmmakers, the filmmakers also help disseminate the composers' work through space and time.
