This week’s music is actually a splice of two successive cues from the film Home Room. (Bonus points if you can discern where I made the edit.)
Most of the film is a dialogue between two principal characters, girls from opposite social castes who bond in the aftermath of a school shooting. Correspondingly, most of the music is scored for intimate instrumental combinations – piano, woodwind quartet, solo cello, and so on. We reserved the full string ensemble, such as in today’s piece, for the more significant dramatic moments.
