'The Book Thief' Cue List

Recommended Posts

I managed to obtain the complete cue list of The Book Thief's film score. It has slates. This is sourced from a promotional score that was released by Fox, on 2 compact discs. Williams seemed to have composed many alternates.. It would be interesting to hear your guys' opinions / analysis based off this cue list. But, what the heck are the first 6 cues?

Especially because they have the right to copy!

The first five cues are - and that pretty much indicates itself - little arrangements of the score's themes. I'm not really familiar with this score, so I don't know whether they were eventually used either on the OST, FYC or in the film. I don't know about the End Credits cue, but I assume it's track 22 on the OST.

The OST has the Death/Providence Theme at the end of the End Credits as a solo piano coda. In the film the piece ends after The Visitor at Himmel Street section. Might this minute long addition be either 0mB or 0mC?

Welcome to JWFan, Lockdown!

Well, this is fascinating! A 2CD promo release from Fox? First I've heard of it! Awesome!

I suppose I should link to this old spreadsheet I had made:


I guess I should update it with the info you have in the main post here!

EDIT: OK, I added a new tab to the spreadsheet. Looks like cue 2m14 Arrival of Max is one we didn't know about before, along with 3 alternates, and 4 of the 0m cues. Neat!
