Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano

The stars of this film have been nominated for 73 Academy Awards and won 9. Their films have grossed over $20 billion worldwide. You know their work. But do you know them?

Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano chronicles what happened when celebrated pianist Gloria Cheng challenged the world's greatest film composers - Williams, Newman, Giacchino, Broughton, Desplat and Davis - to write original pieces for solo piano. No movie. No orchestra. Just a composer and the blank page. Be a fly on the wall for these once-in-a-lifetime recording sessions that profile these titans of film music like we've never seen them before.
