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!
- Adagio by Samuel Barber
- Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner
- Piano Concerto No 2 by Sergei Rachmaninov
- Flight of the Bumble Bee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
