Whether it’s original film soundtracks or classical music put to powerful effect on the big screen, Classic FM invites you on a weekly journey through the finest film scores, every Saturday at 5pm with Andrew Collins.
Each week, we showcase a selection of film soundtracks, from the latest releases by the likes of Michael Giacchino, Thomas Newman or John Williams to historic scores by Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams and Korngold.
Every few months we’ll broadcast a video game music special, too, making us pretty much the only radio station in the UK that regularly plays this popular genre.
Andrew digs out his crystal ball and predicts which composers will be household names in the years to come.
We begin with the Nottingham-born composer Steven Price, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2014 for his suitably eerie music for Gravity.
Also included is music from Nathan Halpern, who scored two films included on Barack Obama’s list of the best films of 2018: the Cannes-winning feature The Rider and the Oscar-nominated documentary Minding the Gap. Andrew then turns to the small screen to hear selections from 2018’s television adaption of Vanity Fair, scored by emerging London-based composer, Isobel Waller-Bridge.
