Pianist Valentina Lisitsa, one of the most watched classical musicians on the internet with 118 million views and more than 260,000 subscribers on YouTube, returns with a lush program of cinematic music originally scored for piano and orchestra.  Drawing on film scores from the 1940s and on, Lisitsa has selected a program showcasing the full range of on screen emotions. The solo piano was often the only accompaniment to film in the cinema's infancy and "silent" days, but with the advent of sound it was not long before the instrument found a more concertante role in soundtrack music. John Huntley, in his book British Film Music, cites the use of the piano in a minor melodrama, The Case of the Frightened Lady (1940), as a milestone in this field. It never really has a concerto role but it started something that has continued through changes in style and fashion right up to modern times.
