The geniuses of film music performed by the fantastic Czech National Symphony Orchestra

What legends might these be? The very best of course. Think timeless composer heroes such as Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone, Vladimir Cosma and John Williams. Their melodies are known to film fans around the world, and are testament to the fact that quality movie music well and truly belongs in concert halls just as much as any other music. What's more, many movies owe their box office success stories precisely to the music featuring in them.  

From the usual synchronisations of dramatic events playing out on the screen together with particular moments in the score, such fundamental works emerged that will forever retain their primacy. Examples include melodies from from Once Upon a Time in the West, Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, The Godfather and The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe.
