Baz Luhrmann has been responsible for some of the most imaginative, spectacularly colourful and epic films of our times. And his soundtracks work hand in glove with the visual spectacle to excite us, move us and make us draw breath in sheer awe.

Perhaps it's his audacity, taking us where we least expect. Perhaps it's the way his musical choices connect us with the film, here and now, even when the setting is 19th-century Paris or 1920s New York. Perhaps it's the influence of Italian grand opera lurking in the background.

Perhaps we don't need an answer. Simply join us for the 'Director's Cut' of Luhrmann soundtracks: from the waltzing Blue Danube of Strictly Ballroom  to the Radiohead score for Romeo +Juliet , from the eclecticism of Moulin Rouge  to Australia with its mix of jazz standards and 'Nimrod' from Elgar's Enigma Variations. Or the hip-hop inspiration of Gatsby .

'I wanted the modern audience to get the feeling of what jazz may have felt like in the '20s - dangerous, intoxicating, thrilling.' (Baz Luhrmann)

Music from the movies of Baz Luhrmann
including 
The Great Gatsby , Moulin Rouge , Strictly Ballroom , Romeo+Juliet  and  Australia
