Film Music: A History explains the development of film music by considering large-scale aesthetic trends and structural developments alongside socioeconomic, technological, cultural, and philosophical circumstances. The booka€™s four large parts are given over to Music and the qSilentq Film (1894--1927), Music and the Early Sound Film (1895--1933), Music in the qClassical-Styleq Hollywood Film (1933--1960), and Film Music in the Post-Classic Period (1958--2008). Whereas most treatments of the subject are simply chronicles of qgreat film scoresq and their composers, this book offers a genuine history of film music in terms of societal changes and technological and economic developments within the film industry. Instead of celebrating film-music masterpieces, it dealsa€”logically and thoroughlya€”with the complex a€˜machinea€™ whose smooth running allowed those occasional masterpieces to happen and whose periodic adjustments prompted the large-scale twists and turns in film musica€™s path.a€œMusic, Drama, Warner Brothers: The Cases of Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon.a€ In Music and ...
