Music used in the movie


Does anybody know exactly which piece by Bach was used in ths film?

reply

Read the credits here on IMDb. I tracked it down and submitted the info a few months back. Now, if someone can identify the Mozart piece, I'd be grateful.

Thanks a lot. I've found a nice recording in mp3. http://web.mit.edu/ckcheung/www/PerformanceRecordings.htm
So what part of the movie has Mozart music?

reply

If I recall correctly, it's used the winter scene with the boy, the apple and the birds. I did try to identify it at the time I submitted the Bach listing, but failed.

I did pin down the tango and added it to the Soundtracks section - you should be able to find an MP3 of it easily enough searching by name.

IMDb must've nuked all your hard work, because now the Soundtracks section only lists:

"Utomlyonnoe solntse"
Written by Jerzy Petersburski
http://imdb.com/title/tt0079986/soundtrack

If it's not too much trouble, could you list those pieces here? In particular, I'd love to know the piano piece at ~18:00 when the young drifter walks past the townsfolk and then sits down at their table briefly before wandering off on that long road. It's definitely not Bach, probably not Mozart or anyone from the Baroque/early Classical period; my guess would be Chopin or someone later. I could be wrong, though. Any help will be much appreciated. And GRRR at whoever deleted your original listing >:(

**EDIT**
I just realized that the same piece is repeated at ~27:00 in the winter scene with the boy & the apple. Is this the Mozart piece you were talking about? If so, any luck identifying it? I really thought it must be a later composer from the Romantic period (because of the brooding, asynchronous tempo and arpeggio playing); if it's Mozart, then it's a side of him I've never heard. Dying to know.

The presto theme when the wolf is running with the baby sounds like Mozart - the rest sounds like Bach.
