Perhaps the black keys weren't working that day!

 

A good thing!  Leading tones have always bored me.

This theme introduction in the "On the Alpine Pasture" section of Strauss' Alpine Symphony.  I love how he plays with this theme throughout "Through Thickets and Undergrowth on the Wrong Path" but the short intro of it is so beautiful on solo horn:

 

 

 

I'm a sucker for a stately horn

Great moment, exceptional work, one of my very favourites! Also love the horns that play towards the end of "The Glacier", from 19:09.

 

 

My short moment; the cheeky Holst-like woodwind at 1:48 - 1:57:

It feels almost like a boring cliche for a film score fan to talk about R. Strauss since his tone poems were such a massive influence on the medium, but sometimes you just gotta lean into loving the popular stuff.
