    What is the name of the violinist
    who plays Bach so beautifully?

    Thank you –

  2. Am I hearing, in the solo piano music when Hemingway’s typewriter is being featured, music by Erik Satie? If not, whose music is that?

    • David Reynolds says:

      Yes! Satie’s Gymnopédies appears during Episode 1. Love that piece…

      • David Reynolds says:

        Forgive me – it’s Gnossienne #1, not Gymnopédies.

  3. Clint says:

    What is the piano piece at the end of the film when details of Hemingway’s death are being related?

    • E says:

      Have been searching for that song too, simple yet haunting. Was looking at the music credits from the end of the third episode and based on that I think it must be Twilight by David Cieri – – a song I’ve been unable to find anywhere and thus can’t confirm.

    • Ali says:

      It’s Bach, but I think an arrangement made for the documentary. It’s Partita No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1002: V. Sarabande. Most versions a person can find are violin. That slow piano is wonderful though.

    Love the soundtrack especially Erik Satie 🥰
