  2. Read the book, schindlers list. Such an uplifting story. Think it was Liam Neeson that played Schindler.
    The music does it justice.

  4. The music perfectly fits the topic of Schindler's list.
    The teary performer was probably thinking of someone in her family that either got saved or perished in the Holocaust.

  12. Reading the notes on the YouTube video, apparently the reason for the English horn player's emotion is because she has a debilitating form of rheumatism and could not play professionally as she wished to but had the chance to play this with the orchestra. The blonde woman in the audience is her daughter on the occasion of her 18th birthday.

    Facts notwithstanding (!) it is a beautiful piece, it was a very well done movie, and no we can never forget the Holocaust.

      Thank you I went to sleep last night wondering why the camera lens filmed her happy face in the audience. Huge contrast to such sad music. Also I felt a personal reason was also part of the horn player's emotions.

      young lady such contrast to the music also

    3. We call it the Cor Anglais, not the English horn. It's a very beautiful sound and is quite a heavy instrument.

  13. I was stunned by "Schindler's List" when it appeared in our cinemas in 1994 and I remember driving away from the afternoon showing humming that tune in my head. It just seemed to reflect the pain of the story so perfectly.

  17. Very moving, even without the extra visuals.

  18. The film is one of several I can never conceive of watching again due to it's devastating effect on my emotions. Even this music, played in isolation, seems almost too much to bear.
    (Sophie's Choice' is another film in my same category for the same reason.)

    1. Same here. Music is so evocative. Even just the score of Dances With Wolves breaks my heart for the horrible loss of American Indian way of life.
