The Pianist (2002) soundtrack

Post by MeatGrinder » 23 Nov 2007 20:13

[Topic entitled "Name of song in The Pianist?" renamed by the music section host, Ivan Ž.]

Toward the end of the movie, when Brody first hears someone playing the piano downstairs. What is the name of that song? I think its a German composer.

Google "Beethoven Piano" or similar terms if you are new to that style of music.. you might like Rachmaninov as well

Have a search for Addinsell's "Warsaw Concerto" while you're at it.

Or Brahms.

If it's the somewhat dreamy nature of the music that appeals to you here, look into Debussy. Ravel and Fauré are also good options.
