Puccini’s Music In The Cinema

The cinema world has a long practice of drawing on classical music for its soundtracks. Ligeti, Verdi, Richard Strauss, Johann Strauss and Mozart are just some of the composers whose music has enriched our filmic experience.

It is arguably the music of Puccini that has been most frequently used on the big screen. Ian Haydn Smith tracks the course of Puccini’s music in film from 1932 to as recently as last year in Gramophone magazine.
