Top 10 Classical Works Used in the Movies

In the latest mailing from Mid-America Piano, they included a fun list of Top 10 Classical Works Used in the Movies. I have no idea how they come up with the data for this list, but I thought it was pretty cool. I don’t recognize the titles of a couple of these, so I’m curious to look them up and see if I recognize the music!

  1. Adagio by Samuel Barber
  2. Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner
  3. Piano Concerto No 2 by Sergei Rachmaninov
  4. Flight of the Bumble Bee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
  5. Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss
  6. Symphony No 5, Adagietto by Gustav Mahler
