    I loved the soundtrack to The Farewell but I must confess that i’m disappointed the credits didn’t mention Beethoven, Bach (I think) and others (the wonderful rendition of Abide in Me in Cantonese). I hope the composer didn’t intend to take credit for the music of others. The lack of mention allows those without requisite knowledge to mistakenly credit the composer with ideas that didn’t originate with him. The adaptations were wonderful and well-performed. Not crediting the source material is like hip-hop, drop the needle sampling. Stolen genius. How could the producers of an otherwise excellent film miss that detail? I watch the end reel of nearly every film I see. I’m probably not the Lone Ranger here.

      Do you happen to know the name of the classical piece Billi plays on the piano in the scene at her grandmother’s apartment?

  2. Claire Donohue says:

    Why doesn’t the sound track include the song “without you” and the final song (unidentified) in the credits

  3. Sherry Gray says:

    Confused about Senza Di Te relationship the song “Without You” by the Welsh group Badfinger? Credits?

  4. Dona Lori Cooper says:

    Senza Di Te (Without You)
    Written by Tom Evans (as Thomas Evans) & Pete Ham (as Peter Ham)
    Performed by Fredo Viola

  5. Susan Glass says:

    Does anyone know the title of the song that plays when the credits are rolling. It is a VERY familiar tune and I can’t place it. I think its a classical piano piece

    • Eric Ratner says:

      The first song in the credits (Without You) was written and originally sung by Harry Nilsson. But I think you’re trying to identify the music after Without You. It’s driving me crazy; I know the tune, but I don’t know where it’s from. I think it’s Bach.

    • Pam says:

      It is a Beethoven Sonata – Pathetique

  6. Kat Olson says:

    I think it’s Without You by Bread
