Chopin e minor concerto, mvt. 2, Romance

I think there was some more stuff from the concertos in that movie, but I can't find anything. I've only seen it once, and it was about 10 years ago.

Oh, and I forgot: Chopin's Fantasie-Impromptu, only the lyrical bit, was adapted into a song called "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows".

The actual Chopin piece, brought to you by Horowitz (relevant passage beginning at 1:02):

That recording is one of the nicer Horowitz ones I've heard.

Also, some Bach:

Everybody knows that one. :D

Number 2 of Ligeti's Musica Ricercata was used in the film "Eyes Wide Shut." I haven't seen the film, but I've had people come up to me after recitals and tell me they were surprised to recognise the music.
