Could anyone help me identify the piano ballad playing during the credits of this great French suspense thriller ?
The piece is simple but hauntingly beautiful and easily learned by ear (if you have played piano for a while) in case there is no sheet music available. I'm hoping it turns out to be a well-known Classical piece however.)
Music starts at 2:09:38

Okay. I had to register with this website to reply, which is no biggie. I love networking with others, learning, etc. Anyway, I listened to the end of the movie. I think it sounds like Anton Rubinstein's Melody in F or a variation on it. I've attached a link on YouTube of Josef Hofmann playing it. Tell me what you think.

I did recently discover the name of the piece was Melody in F, however I much prefer the movie version with left hand arpeggios over the original (?)with the high triads every other beat.(I finally just learned the Movie version by ear since there is no way to find sheet music for it.)
As a Stride player I really enjoyed the Teddy Wilson version as well !

Music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence. Its common elements are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture.
