And Mr. Holland, from Mr. Holland's Opus. I thought the piece at the end was kind of lousy, but it was a good movie!

And don't forget Stefan Radetzky, the composer of the "Warsaw Concerto" from the film "Dangerous Moonlight" (called "Suicide Squadron" in the USA.)

This imaginary concerto was actually composed by Richard Addinsell and has become quite famous independently of the movie.
