From time to time when watching a movie I am stricken by something I hear but don't recognize from the soundtrack. Usually just one or two pieces.

This thread is the place were you can share those moments.

Here is my first contribution to the thread:

The movie "Anticrist" from 2009 staring Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg and directed by Lars von Trier contained the stunning aria by Handle "Lascia ch'io pianga" from the opera Rinaldo.

Here is a link to the aria on youtube: https://youtu.be/e3jKITkJvE0

Since hearing this aria several years ago I have purchased the CD "Art of Cecilia Bartoli" which has a nice version.

Great topic!

All of us classical fans certainly owe Bugs Bunny a couple of beers....

I am a soundtrack guy too and will put in a plug for "Diva" which featured "La Wally" by Alfredo Catalani. Rest of the soundtrack was pretty standard 1980s music but quite interesting.

Not a movie but the UK mini-series The Camomile Law introduced me to Ravel's String Quartet in F major as the 2nd movement formed the basis for the sound track:

My first real experience with classical in a movie was the recurring Romeo and Juliet theme from the Movie "The Music Lovers" about Tchaikovsky with him being played by Richard Chamberlain, in the early '70's

It was Tchaikovsky all the way in big Theater Dolby sound system, I was impressed and I love that Piece.

Not movies per se but movie length TV episodes. Inspector Morse. This is my favourite show of all time always featured great music. The final episode (The Remorseful Day) includes my favourite choral piece, Faure's Requiem (the Libera Me).

Wald Disney's Fantasia
I have the 2 disc set , remastered original soundtrack edition, Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Walt Disney's Fantasia, released in 1940." Never before had a film used a stereophonic system to surround its audience with music." My favourite track would be A Night on Bald Mountain, Modest Mussorgsky. I believe all the great music on the sound track was recorded for the movie and probably is a poor choice for 2 channel home use as all the tracks are available on your favourite label.

I looked this up on IMDB and the only film matching this title was a 1936 documentary. Not much said about the sound track. Is this the film you meant?

my first introduction to classical music and for many of my generation was Bugs Bunny.

that was the theme music for the Vancouver produced TV series "Klahanie" that ran from 1967 to '78 and featured works by local independent writers and film producers regarding the wilderness, nature and rural culture.
