Part of Rachmaninoff's Symphony no.2 was used in the movie Birdman, check it out in our classical music in the movies compilation video:

The film uses (exploits) several great works, including Mahler’s Ninth, to simulate profundity.

Paul Beard

Movies are a poor format for classical music in my opinion .They only take an exerpt from a piece and our attention is on the movie's story and the visual element .The pure artistic intent of the composer is no longer in tact .


@Steve Burrus - Perhaps this has been addressed earlier, but are you familiar with Eric Carmen's 1976 popular adaptation of Rachmaninoff's theme?


@Steve Burrus the movie wasn't memorable enough for me to answer. You're better off just watching Ana play here and skipping the movie outright.

This music is literally the most beautifully written suite in existence. I have actually played this music with my orchestra, the City of Belfast Youth Orchestra, and there was nothing more satisfying than coming in to orchestra every week and getting to play this absolutely monstrous but beautiful piece. It is so difficult to put this suite together, especially when working with people all below the age of twenty or so. We took this on tour with us to Italy and the great sense of pride and accomplishment I took away from our performances of this will stay with me forever. Such a fabulously composed suite, I could not have asked for more of a challenge and more of a beauty to play.

Well done you and all

Gerard H. I love Rachmaninoff as well. So much that I was inspired to seek music that had similar impact. Seek out Zdenek Fibich and his sublime Poeme. Hold out for a version with full orchestra that plays it appropriately slow. Once upon a time, it literally affected me so much, I had to pull off to the side of the road to listen, blubbering like an idiot. And still one of the best moments of my life. Like having God speak to you and tell you ‘here is your proof of me’. I don’t care who makes fun of that. It’s a profound feeling. Anywho, seek it out. Hope it does even a small version for you if what it did for me.
