Overview

This edition of Naxos' The Classics at the Movies series collects orchestral music from romantic films, including Jean de Florette, Out of Africa, A Room With a View, and Doctor Zhivago. Unlike some releases that feature symphonic music written specifically for the film, the Classics series gathers its material from the works of renowned composers that have been heard on the silver screen. In this case, pieces from such luminaries as Verdi, Mozart, Schubert, and Puccini appear. Highlights include Mozart's "Adagio from Clarinet Concerto," with a solo by Ernst Ottensamer of the Vienna Mozart Academy, and pianist Jenö Jandó's performance of Schubert's "Impromptu No. 4." All of the music on The Classics at the Movies: Romance is stirring, and could certainly be seen as romantic. But the album works just as well as a collection of pleasant, relaxing classical music.
