A rare picture from the Boston scoring sessions back in summer 1993:    

Schindler's List was recorded onto analog tape that is perfectly vaulted at Universal with no issues.  Those original tapes were not pulled to assemble this release; they've probably been sitting in t

I'm sorry but that's just not true.  Other than source music, everything's here.

Can anybody explain to me, why we're discussing in this thread how the music looks and not how it sounds?

Some tracks definitely don't sound good, looking at spectrograms just helps us understand what happened and kind of confirms what we can hear.

Not in this case, the 16kHz cutoff cannot be heard.

 

It's pretty obvious we're not discussing the 16kHz cutoff. Can't you see all the missing detail on the disc 2 track? Dark or black sections on a spectogram = less data. Even beneath the 16kHz cutoff (in the 'audible for human hearing' range, if you consider frequencies above 16kHz meaningless... which is subjective) there is a noticeable lack of detail compared to the equivalent track on disc 1 (also the sessions).

 

And people raised the audio quality of this track long before it was analysed visually to identify the differences.

There are other spectographs that display the frequencies the way they are audible for the human ear and those indicate how the cutoff at 16kHz affects the listenability - not in the slightest, even if you are generally capable to hear tones beyond that mark.

 

Interesting. Which spectrographic presentations are you talking about?

You can just switch the it's displayed in many programs (physical vs musical).

I still don't think that's what the quality difference comes from. The "lack of detail" is all way above the 6kHz mark and that is where you hear nothing more than overtones already. So, I hear the quality difference, but I don't see it proven in the spectogram.

I have to say, Schindler's List is a score that has really grown on me. Several years ago, I wrote on here that I wasn't a big fan of the score. But as I've gotten to know the score better beyond the opening "Theme" track, I've grown to love parts of it. "I Could Have Done More" is a case in point ("Making the List" is also incredible). This section in particular is devastatingly beautiful: 

 

3:38-3:50

 

 

Question: Is this insert included on the recording sessions, or only the LLL set? I know the sessions include an earlier insert, but do they include the bit I posted above?

Nope, the final revised film version insert wasn't in the session leak and premiered on the LLL. 

 

The session leak only had the cue as recorded and the first version of the insert.

The OST had the original cue with no inserts

 

The leak had that, and an early unused insert in a separate track (technically multiple takes of each in their own tracks) 

 

The LLL has that unused insert in its own track, as well as an edited track of the entire cue with the final film insert integrated (as well as the entire OST) 

 

There's nothing in the leak that isn't on the LLL, outside of source music, clean openings/endings, and takes / portions of takes not used on the OST or in the film
