Title: Chopin...
Post by: Isai7818 on November 04, 2009, 11:55:30 am
Do you know which Chopin song it is that "Szpilman" plays for the German officer at the house where he was hiding? Its a scene towards the end of the movie. Is it even a Chopin song? ???



...I'm referring to the movie "The Pianist" that I talked about with you after class yesterday. The song is Ballade No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 23. Can I use this song for my paper?

I refer you to the following post: http://band4me.org/forum/index.php?topic=43.0

If your question isn't answered in that post I would suggest doing an online search as follows: "The Pianist" movie soundtrack

I'm not really familiar with the scene you are describing, it has been a while since I have seen that movie.

That is by far one of my favorite movies ever!!  And that scene is really awesome. when it came out i was just about to give up on piano lessons because i was bored of it, and it inspired me to keep going...

Relaxing. This song is magnificent, I am still trying to broaden my horizon on Romantic pianist; however, Chopin seems to be the only composer that sticks. Anyways, if you like Romantic pieces try this link:

It's a little sad but a great piece nonetheless.
