Tytuł: Music from the old Solaris movie
Wiadomość wysłana przez: snorri w Lipiec 22, 2005, 04:47:18 pm
Hi!

I have a CD with Edward Artemyevs soundtrack music from the old Solaris movie. One of the pieces is based on a composition by Johann Sebastian Bach, but the name of that work is not mentioned in the booklet. Does anyone here know more about it? Bach wrote so much music that it would be hard to find out by simply listening to everything from the Bach section in the music store ...  ;)

Hej!

It seems I found the answer by myself: According to this Link (http://www.dvdark.co.uk/c/prod/pVSFLA/), it is the chorale prelude "Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ" (BWV 639)!

[edit]
MIDI examples of this beautiful piece can be found here (http://www.lutheran-hymnal.com/organbook/organbuchlein_gm.htm) (but the file seems to be a bit corrupted, which makes the interpretation sound somewhat surreal after half a minute or so) or here (http://www.kunstderfuge.com/bach/organ.htm) (MIDI file OK here, but the link to the file only works in Internet Explorer).

You are clever enough. I did the same way: Took DVD and re-recorded the soundtrack.
 Do you agree that Tarkovsky`s screening is better than Soderberg`s in some way.
 Have you noticed the similarities in the appearance of Banionis and Clooney?  
 As I remember there was no description of Cris`s appearance in Lem`s "Solaris".

What for similanties do you mean specially?
Please, fill your comment with information, because I think I have seen the same, but I'm not sure.

I think he mean's silhouettes and some remote similarity in the faces of both Kelvins.

Like brothers , don`t you agree?Or perhaps like a father and a son.

Well, I'm not necesarily willing to digest the 'father-son' hypothesis, never the less - they seem related, indeed.
