While Young Indy sneaks around the palace (37:00-39:00), the archduke and his guests are listening to Mozartís Piano Concerto in D Minor, K. 466, 2nd Movement (Romanza)
. Rosenthal has incorporated elements of it into the score as well.
You can find a very similar version to the one used in the episode on the very last track of disc 3 of the score for the film Amadeus
. This will add another nice little 10 minutes of music to your YIJC collections. The piece complements the musical cues of this episode very well.
Yes, it's a 2-year-old topic but I wanted to thank Demitasse, again, for identifying this.
Great post & why I love The Raven.
A few days ago, my girlfriend & I were in Vienna and went to see an orchestra perform Mozart & Strauss. The concert was in a nice, big, old Austrian building and THEY PLAYED THIS PIECE. I was really hoping they would and they did...beautifully. 'Twas a very special experience to hear some 'Young Indy music' PLAYED LIVE in the SAME CITY & SAME MONTH where the episode took place (105 years later)!
Our windows at Hotel Bristol were right across the street from the Vienna State Opera House. Many of the hotel room doors, on each & every floor, held plaques indicating the years of when famous people had LIVED in those rooms for long periods of time (from the 1890s onwards...including Teddy Roosevelt, 1910
). Our own hallway was an international 'who's who' list of late 19th/early 20th century musical celebrities with overlapping timeframes. This place must have been one hell of a party back in those days!
Richard Strauss had our room from c.1919-1924.
*** NEXT MYSTERY TO SOLVE
from "Vienna/Perils of Cupid": The violin piece playing in the background when Indy interrupts the Archduke at dinner. Could it be more Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? Or perhaps some Strauss (Johann I or II)?
: I've been meaning to comment on your earlier posts but need to get this Vienna trip out of my system while the memories are still fresh. Will reply later...after the buzz wears off.
