Music of the day. Takemitsu Toru x Gustav Mahler: "End Credits" from Kurosawa's "Ran"

Takemitsu Toru's "End Credits" from his soundtrack to Akira Kurosawa's Ran (1985):


Gustav Mahler's "Der Abschied" (The Farewell) from Das Lied von der Erde [The Song of the Earth] (1908-1909):



In honor of the exciting two-week run at New York's Film Forum of the soundtrack music series TAKEMITSU.  Ran plays December 12-13, but be sure to catch such rarities as Kobayashi's Youth of Japan (1968), Susumu Hani's Bad Boys (1961), and Hani's She and He (1963).

    That happened to me too. The first time I clicked on the first link it was Mark Maron and Judd Apatow talking about Woody. The second time I clicked on the link it was the music.
