Music in Schindler's List   Saturday, November 15, 2003 (1:49 p.m.) 

Hi, I'm writing an essay on the use of music in Schindler's List and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good secondary sources on the topic. I am specifically looking at the use of:

1. The Jewish folktune Oyfn Pripetshok when Schindler sees the little girl in Red.
2. Bach's Prelude to English Suite #2 from the Nacht Aktion during the liquidation of the Krakow Ghetto.
3. Werner Bochmann's Gute Nacht Mutter during the Selektion at Plaszow.
4. John Williams' Immolation during the exhumation and burning of the dead.
5. John Williams' Auschwitz-Birkenau theme.

I am specifically looking at how the music serves to add discomfort to the viewers however any secondary sources would be appreciated.
Also, if anyone knows where I can find midi files of any of those pieces (except for the Bach) so that I can analyze the music with the use of a score, that'd be great too.

Thanks in advance.

sorry I cannot help, but do you know what song is playing on the radio when Schindler is getting ready to go to the restaurant at the beginning of the movie?

por una cabeza, but i have heard that versions in other movies are different, it is not on the soundtrack, it is not the same version as scent of a woman or true lies.

hey,

Gute Nacht Mutter (or however it's spelled) can be found on http://ingeb.org/Lieder/gutenacm.html however it's only and mp3...words are there too (in german)

if that link does not work, just goto google and type "ingeb" (without the quotes) and it should be the first hit. click on Deutsche Volkslieder, goto the G section and scroll down. the site is huge, i've found dozens of songs on it that i've heard on movies and the history channel.
