7. London Symphony Orchestra: They started recording film scores
In 1935, the LSO recorded their first soundtrack – for Alexander Korda's film 'Things To Come'. It kicked off their reputation as the world's leading soundtrack orchestra. They went on to become the go-to orchestra for Hollywood productions including most famously, John Williams's score to Star Wars. Today they also record soundtrack music for video games.
