Zimmer Rip Off???

Hey what's the deal? I have been a Zimmer fan for quite some time. and I think he is fabulously gifted. Some of his work has not only complemented his films to a tee, but also works in album form.
Having said that...the track "to every captive soul" is almost a complete rip off....I mean NOTE FOR NOTE of the Prelude of Tristan und Isolde by Ricahrd Wagner. The parallel is so transparent I expect that is to be interpreted as a nod to the great opera composer. However...after having read review after review of the music to Hannibal...it seems no one ever mentions this. I have never heard Zimmer himself mention anything either. It doesn't make sense. I mean this is note for note and Media Ventures couldn't be this naive. Any thoughts????
