A fearful, sinister track with hints of the supernatural or Sci-fi. There is a lift in key by a semitone at 1:17 and a piano is added really creating an atmospheric change in gear, cranking up the tension of the scene.
A new arrangement of this orchestral classic by Pietro Mascagni.
Gentle con sordino strings introduce the nostalgic melody before being joined by the harp which acts as both harmonic enrichment and rhythmic basis. The ensemble builds in intensity with climbing strings and dynamics before coming to an end on a final chord with strings, harp and woodwinds.
Music starts with soft and sweeping strings and tuned percussion melodies invoking wonder and a childlike sense of inspiration. Building to an epic orchestral cinematic rise and then a subdued outro with strings, organ and bells.
