Mozart Went To The Movies is a three-part series on the history of orchestral film music, from its roots in European concert halls to its use in cutting edge multimedia.

Star Wars marks the return of the epic orchestral score. And we'll hear how the classic movie sound is influencing digital media, and creating new audiences for symphonic music.
