Soundtrack Q & A
Q: What are the melodies used in the song "August's Rhapsody" from August Rush? I know that one of them is Moondance, but the section after that is bugging me because I can't figure out where I've heard it before. Anyone know? (from CadyNicole in US)
A: One of the first is a piece from Bach. Another is a piece from Elgar. And the parts where the little girl is singing are from when he is in the church playing the organ. The screeching horn section is supposed to sound like traffic. And lastly, there are bits of the main theme mixed in, where the notes are in a 5-1-2-5-3 melody, with harmony.
