The album features the film’s music compiled from the the works of Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Arensky and Bach and performed by violinist Arve Tellefsen, cellist Truls Mørk and pianist Håvard Gimse.

    So it’s not original music at all.

    What is that famous Cello Sonata I heard at the beginning of the movie of Miss Julie. I hear it several times in movies. It was in one of Stanley Kubricks Movies. It’s very haunting. I’ve searched and searched, and cannot find it. I hoping somebody will know it or what I’m talking about.
