From December, 29th, a permanent virtual exhibition “The tunes of beloved movies” timed to the International Day of Cinema is available on the site.

Music in movies is very important. According to composer V. Dashkevich, “music is that cement which fastens dramatic art, actors’ game, and the whole director’s plan in cinema”. It not only characterizes film characters, but also helps spectators to understand them better, creates a picture’s mood and enriches it with beauty making our perception more vivid.

Amazing tunes from movies are loved and sung by many generations of spectators. Musical themes and leitmotivs become world hits, and some soundtracks even have survived films for which they were written, and now they are constantly appear in new arrangements.

You can book editions on display at the Music and audiovisual documents reading room (on the 3rd floor, auditorium 305) and trough the electronic catalog on the Library’s website. Ask librarians for advice on how to search and book documents. The piano and special equipment for playing audio documents are available.

The virtual exhibition “The tunes of beloved movies” is prepared by employees of section for music art document service at the Special collections department.
