Soundtrack Q & A
Q: I just saw this movie and really liked it, but I can't find out what the classical piece is that is used throughout the film. It's very familiar to me but I can't place it, possibly Beethoven? Thanks! (from John in Chicago)
A: It is a Beethoven piece. It's Beethoven's Symphony 7, Second movement. I didn't know it either and I typed in "Beethoven symphony" on Youtube after seeing your question and by pure luck I found the right one. I hope your brain can stop hurting you now like mine was, lol. (thanks to m, USAadd more info
A: Beethoven - Seventh Symphony, Movement 2: Allegretto (thanks to Allen, Boston, MAadd more info
A: It was released as an aria by Sarah Brightman. Title is "Figlio Perduto." (thanks to Tobbie Cadhit, Manila, Philippinesadd more info
A: Now when I used my app on my phone it came up with --Olach Tancz/alia chorea/alia polonica/nerada robyla/olach Tancz(1ere Partie);(2e Partie) Rene Clemencic/ Clemencic Consort (thanks to Danger, Kansasadd more info

Q: What is the song the elementary school band plays at the 50th anniversary scene? It sounds so familiar! (from chris in san francisco)

Q: What is the name of the song where the main character is going to New York? It sounds like it's in 7/4 or something like that. (from brando in USA)
A: Beethoven 7. Symphony II. Allegretto. (NYC SCENE). I bought this soundtrack only because of this "song/title" when Nicolas Cage goes to NYC and am obviously not amused to get a soundtrack by M. Beltrami with some nonsense type of monotones classical music, which I would never have bought had I known was the only music on the CD. (thanks to chum, Dusseldorf, Germanyadd more info

A: It's Berlin Philarmonic Orchestra, conducted by Karajan (thanks to TKK, Tbilisi, Georgiaadd more info
A: Even more specifically it is Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A, Op 92: 2. Allgretto by the Berliner Philharmoniker & Herbert Von Karajan. (thanks to Nathan, Gilbert, AZadd more info
A: HvK recorded 3 different Beethoven 7ths with the BPO ('63, '77, '84); which one? (thanks to kbb2392, Floridaadd more info
