Richard Strauss   Friday, November 22, 2002 (12:15 p.m.) 

Richard Strauss wrote an oppera called The rose knight and John Williams used a track for the rouge city scene. Does anybody know the name of the track ?
I think John Williams was also inspired by the music of Richard Robbins.
thanks.

The Rosen Cavelier is the original name of this opera, but unfortunatelly, it does not appears on the Album....actually, i Bought this album expecting to find that track, but it wasn´t there.
Kubrick used to Mix a lot of Strauss´ music on his movies, and the short version by Williams heard in the movie seems to be very good. But well, it is not there.

Richard Robbins, the composer behind "Remains of the Day" - great comparision! Yes, he undoubtely "borrowed" some from his hypnotic, pulsating style, especially in opening wonderful "The Mecha World". There are also to be hear some inspirations by Philip Glass if You'll listen closely to rhythms of "The Mecha World" and "Abandoned in the Woods". This score is masterpiece.

The Mecha World is totally Steve Reich...just listen to Steve's Music for 18 Musicians and you'll know :P especially that synth-piano sounding thing (I don't know what instrument it is )

Hi,

I checked recently Steve Reich's website and You got some right with this comparision. There is even to download mentioned by You track, which I really liked. We might say Williams was influenced by Reich, I agree with You although The Mecha World track is far more richly orchestrated than minimalistic Reich's music.

What track from Der Rosenkavalier was used at the begining of the film version Rouge City?

In the movie there is a quote from a waltz from "Rosenkavalier": "Ohne mich, ohne mich jeder Tag Dir zu bang ..." ("Without me, every day a misery ...") that features in the 2nd act (sung by Baron Ochs). On my recording, it is track 8 - "Wird kommen über Nacht" ("It'll happen overnight"). The waltz then reappears severeal times in the opera.
In the movie, the melody is quoted after Adrian Grenier's "Get in" - crossing the bridge - "Say aaaah" - until entering the bridge's "mouth" (ca. 25 seconds). The quote does not appear in the "Rouge City"-track on the commercial release.
Hope this helps.

... and adding to my earlier response - I just watched the DVD specials; there is an interview with Williams, who states that Kubrick specifically had requested Spielberg to leave the "Rosenkavalier"-waltz in the film, but did not say why or where. So Williams included it "as an homage to Kubrick" in the Rouge City-scene, mentioning that it was difficult to find a place where it would fit, "without fully realizing what the connection in his (Kubrick's) mind was".
Have fun!
