Last evening I watched Terrence Malick’s philosophical film with my wife. The visual images and background music are stunning. Here. Much of this music was familiar, but there were many pieces new to me, or at least I do not have them among my collection. I added several this morning.
If I were to pull out a few from this list I would highly recommend the following.
- The Moldau by Bedrich Smetana
- Symphony No. 4 by Brahms
- Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
- Harold in Italy by Hector Berlioz
- Lacrimosa 2 by Zbigniew Preisner or also known as A Requiem for My Friend. A haunting piece of music.
- Symphony No. 3 by Henryk Górecki
- Symphony No. 1 by Gustav Mahler
The film is on the long side, but the photography and music is worth the time.
