I know we've discussed this somewhere, but can't remember... 🙄 

Film music has it's roots in Classical music, just not all Film music is Classical. 

Found a great article at the Pasha Blog, that gives a good comparison. 

Classical Music vs. Film Music: The Differences Between The 2 Art Forms

This upcoming FM GP had me thinking about music for this Autumn & Halloween.  I had almost forgot about the great John Williams music in the film, "The Witches of Eastwick". 

Here's a performance by Stepan Starikov playing "Devil's Dance", that makes me believe Classical music is still alive in Film... and it's for the Violin!

I didn't need to see the movie to enjoy this (but I do love it)! 

🤔...  I'm this 🤏 close to chucking all my current music - to start learning this piece!
