Film music represents a particular challenge for any composer, with specific demands—of which audiences are mostly unaware. Whether underscoring, mood or montage, Otto M. Schwarz masters them all equally. However, in using leitmotifs, he best expresses himself musically. In these pieces, his fans recognise his signature—which is why they are played again and again as a soundtrack and why they find their way into orchestral programs. The playlist on this website contains audio for every production of recent years. Audio for some early works is not shown for legal reasons or because it no longer exists at an acceptable quality.
