I was asked to write some music that would capture a time and mood and it seemed to me the director was after some piano music from the Romantic period. So I thought long and hard about Frederic Chopin and tried to imagine the kind of world he lived in. Then set up two microphones on a friend’s piano in Prague and improvised in a Romantic style on a B flat minor sequence. If only they were horses on the cobblestones outside and not car after car.
