It turns out that a tune I liked, which I described as having “a relentless three note descending theme, underlying colorful violin lines,” in one of the Oscar nominated films, Triangle of Sadness, that I discussed in my post of March 14th, was not an original composition by the film’s composer, but a Baroque piece by one Marin Marais, called “The Bells of St Genevieve.”
I had the local classical music station, KDFC, on in the background this afternoon, set at a fairly low volume, yet noticed this piece and thought, doesn’t that sound a lot like that track from….? *Is* it that track from…? And checked it out. The KDFC host didn’t mention the connection of this piece to that film. But I’m guessing that’s why they played it.
