I’d originally imagined this cue’s introductory solo on trumpet, this being the traditional “sad military” sound. In a fit of what I like to consider inspiration, I switched it to solo bassoon, giving the melody a more ethereal tone. (I’ll also admit being a stickler for the underdog, and the bassoon definitely qualifies in that regard.)
Eventually the music becomes proud and brassy, so perhaps it’s best that I featured the soft instrument while it was still audible!
