Interested in a pair of tickets to the Feb. 23 concert by David Finckel, Wu Han and Philip Stetzer (presented by the Ensemble Music Society at the Basile Theatre at the Indiana History Center)?

The program includes the second movement of Schubert's “Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat major.” Doesn't ring a bell? Well, it probably will when you hear it, since it’s been used in movies ranging from “The Hunger” to “Crimson Tide” to “Barry Lyndon.”

Details on the concert here.

For a random chance at winning the tickets, just name your favorite use of classical music in a movie below (If you can’t think of one, you can always fall back on “2001: A Space Odyssey.”)

Good luck.

  • Classical Music
    My favorite use of classical music in a movie is "Flight of the Valkyries" in Apocalypse Now.

    I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
  • Khachaturian in Hudsucker Proxy
    Does Khachaturian qualify as classic? Various Aram Khachaturian pieces featured in a movie about hula hoops - what's not to love? A strange but wonderful modern classic presented in old-Hollywood style.
  • Hoosier Classic
    How about Breaking Away? The film uses Felix Mendelssohnâ??s Symphony #4 in A Major as Dave practices for a bicycle race.
  • X men II
    In the second scene in Xmen 2 - a piece from Mozart's Requiem in D Minor plays when night crawler attacks the White House
  • Hudsucker
    I second Robert G's nomination. Great use of Khachaturian's music. And the original stuff is pretty darn good too.
  • Like Clockwork
    One of the most novel uses of classical music for me was the film "A Clockwork Orange". I liked the notion of a future world that still loves and respects classical music, and you just haven't heard Beethoven until you've heard it with synthesizers.
  • Fantasia?
    Walt Disney used Schubert's song in the final part of Fantasia. will that work to win tickets?
  • Superman
    Anything John Williams did is classical in my book.
  • Beethoven
    The slow movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony in "The King's Speech"
  • Not sure...
    So, 2001: Space Odyssey.
  • The Black Swan
    Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. After seeing "The Black Swan" I now want to go to my first ballet. At least I will know the story line. When is Swan Lake coming to Indy?
  • a song to remember
    Chopin's music in the Chopin bio
  • Mozart - Amadeus
    All Mozart music in Amadeus...
  • Classical
    Love classical, so cool, so romantic, exotic and uplifitng.
  • Movies, what about cartoons?
    I like all the classical music in cartoons.
  • You are all far to young.....
    Sorry folks. You are all far to young to remember ââ?¬Å?THE CLASICââ?¬Â? of all:Walt Disney and the Sorcererââ?¬â?¢s Apprentice!
  • I've been snowed in...
    and my brain is mush. So, 2001: A Space Odyssey, it is!
  • Mickey
    Fantasia -- sorry I know it is lame
  • use of classical in movies
    2001 Space Odyessey
  • My favorite
    Bach's Cello Suite No.1 i-Prelude in The Soloist. Also, like Peggy S, the Chopin soundtrack in the Chopin bio.
  • Classical Music
    Apocalypse Now was always my favorite, but I can also go with Clair de Lune by Debussy in Oceans 11 (2001) while the gang was gazing at the fountain.
  • Bugs
    Didn't Bugs Bunny and pals use a lot of classical music? (just sayin')
  • Classics in Film
    The "Ride of the Valkyries" by Wagner in Apocalypse Now is the first thing that came to mind.
  • The Classics!
    Cello Sonata No. 1 The Horse Whisperer
  • Requiem for a Dream
    Lux Aeterna
  • best
    fantasia and also Fatal Attraction
  • Movie Music
    I love the beautiful, haunting theme from "Somewhere in Time"; I only wish I could remember the composer.
  • Somewhere in time
    It was John Barry. He also wrote the scores for Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, and many more.
  • Knowing
    I guess it does not qualify as classical-classical, but I love much of the music from the movie Knowing...especially the last couple scores.
  • In a twisted way
    Several in "A Clockwork Orange" in an out of character fashion.
  • Bugs Bunny
    Bugs was the best. Laughter with great music.
  • don't know yet, so ...
  • The Godfather
    Bachâ??s â??Passacalia and Fugue in C-Minor.â??
    scene near the end of the movie with baby christening
  • hauntingly beautiful
    The music in Schindler's list, composed by John Williams
  • Platoon
    Barber's Adagio for Strings in Platoon (and a lot of other movies). A little modern maybe, but that's piece is a heartbreaker.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
