a little mahler   Saturday, February 4, 2006 (12:50 p.m.) 

Did anyone notice that part of the main melody from Schindler's List is very similar to the first bar from Mahler's 8th symphony ("Symphony of a Thousand")
Part I "Infirma Nostri Corporis" played by the violas (A-D-A-D-Bb-A-G)? I found it very fascinating. Nonetheless I think that Schindler's List is an extraordinary score to an extraordinary film, but could we expect anything less than extraordinary from Williams?

I noticed this too. Itīs pratically the same thing.

THEN LET IT BE a homage to Mahler for not getting his music through during the time of Nazi (Even though he had died some 30 years before that)

Mahler once said: My time will come - and boy he was right...

So maybe Williams had paid a little homage here - OR could it just be a coincidence ?
