Fantasy films and classical music have been closely linked ever since the first films in the genre. In 1922, Friedreich Wilhelm Murnau's Nosferatu, and then Fritz Lang's Metropolis in 1927, set the stage for the look of fantasy films. In 1931 Rouben Mamoulian used J.S.Bach's famous 'Toccata & Fugue in D minor' in his superb Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Production was considerable, and classical music provided the counterpoint to the fantasy effect. This is a 2-CD set, selected by Alain Poncelet & packaged in a long box, of the greatest classical music used in fantasy films through the years. Includes Grieg's Hall Of The Mountain King, Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre, Strauss' Death & Transfiguration & Dukas' Sorcerer's Apprentice. Nocturne. 2005.
