Mr. Bailey continues his tour of film music, a genre many consider less sophisticated than the classical. But the tide of opinion is turning, and film music, standing on its own merits, is now being played in concert halls. Mr. Bailey started the tour by noting its roots in accompaniments for silent films, then moved on to the genre’s “golden age,” with composers like Korngold, Newman, and Tiomkin holding sway. The tour picks up with the 1970s including the best of the current generation. It’s time to open your ears again to the sound of a fascinating genre, one that has created memorable moments in film history—and in the history of music as well.
