tljgator November 4, 2015 Share November 4, 2015 That heartbreaking aria (cantata?) that played near the end, as Floyd and company were returning home to prepare for war, was beautiful. If anyone recognizes it, please identify it. Should Be Working, someone ("Jimothy") in the comments over at HitFix added some comments to Sepinwall's review about the classical music throughout: To add to your list of songs heard tonight, don't forget the Mahler that was playing during Hanzee's investigation of the Blomquist residence, 'Der Abschied' ('The Farewell') from Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth). Not to nitpick, but I thought it was an interesting and possibly foreshadow-y selection. If anyone is curious, this is the translation of the excerpt played: He dismounted and handed him the drink of Farewells. He asked him where he would go and why it must be. He spoke, his voice was quiet. Ah my friend, Fortune was not kind to me in this world. ...It was the same piece during the Dodd/Floyd scene in the car. Specifically the "He dismounted and handed him the drink of Farewells. He asked him where he would go and why it must be" part. There were also a couple of lines Brahms motet, "Warum ist das Licht gegeben" (Why has light been given) during the hospital parking lot shooting with Otto, bleeding into the scene with Floyd and the KC syndicate. There were only a handful of words included in this episode from the opening stanza:Why has light been given to the weary of soul,And life to the troubled hearts? Why? They who wait for death, and it doesn’t come; They who dig for it even out of secret places; Those who almost rejoice and are happy That they achieve the grave. Why? And to the man whose way is hidden, And from whom God himself has been concealed? Why? 5 Link to comment
