LAST AND FIRST MEN
By Chris Sommovigo
My friend Rowland Griffin sent me a heads-up about this soundtrack, which accompanies a film by the name, "LAST AND FIRST MEN". I have not (yet) seen the film, but can testify to the moving power of the music.
Symphonic music in the modern world is safeguarded from extinction by the entertainment industry, primarily the film industry but also the gaming industry. Here is where the idiom itself has broken free of the expectations of "classical music fans" - even if the works are rarely performed in concert halls.
We do have our HiFi, and our HiFi is our personal concert hall - and often a much more intimate and immersive experience of the music.
