    Default can you help me to recognize this air?

    I'm sure I've heard it in the past and I suspect it's a popular one, but I'm not able to recognize it.

    It's around 1:36:00 at the conclusion the movie. I've asked this already but it was pointed out to me that it wasn't probably the right section, so I hope I will have more luck here.
    Warning: the movie contains some images that could be shocking to some, so in case you have a problem with that, please just open another windows in your browser and just listen to the music, that's all I need.

    What time is the next swan?

    Maybe Richard Strauss?

    Definitely not. Could be Korngold or one of the ‘entartete kunst’ composers. If I wasn’t listening on headphones I would Shazam it. Perhaps it was composed specifically for the film.

    I doubt it, considering the rest of the music for the movie. I've actually found a list of the pieces used:

    https://leopardofilmes.com/filme/o-r...eo&product=294

    Musica Puccini - TOSCA (Anita Cerquetti)
    Toscanini - LES PATINEURS, IL LOMBARDI, TROUBADOUR
    Verdi - AIDA (Maria Callas), DOM CARLOS (Marta Möld)
    Haydn - Concerto Para Órgão, Concerto Para Órgão em Dó Menor
    Mozart - ZAIDE (Kiri Tekanawa, dirigido por Sir Colin Davis), Concerto para piano em Sol Menor, dirigido por Alfred Wallenstein
    Spontini - ORE DEI CIELI (Anita Cerquetti)
    VOM Himmel Hoch (Léontine Price, dirigido por Herbert von Karajan)
    Charles Ives - THE UNANSWERED QUESTION, dirigido por Léonard Bernstein



    Johann Strauss II - CASANOVA (dirigido por Otto Ackerman) LA ZARZUELA (operata espanhola dirigida por Luis Cobos) TRIESTE (Modern Jazz Quartet) Gilda Mignonette - LA ROSE NASS EL CHIWAN LEBTANA TAGHOUNDIA (canto algeriano)



    R Dassin
    Vangelis - JE TE DIRAI LES MOTS (Mélina Mercouri)
    Marina Pagano - JESCE SOLE (Roberto di Simone)
    Cuco Sanches - ARIEROS SOMMOS
    Jacques Brel - J'ARRIVE (Marikenia)
    but I still don't know what it is...

    Strauss actually makes sense to me, at least the style seems that (and if it's not Strauss, it sounds definitely close to my ears), not to mention the fact that the title of the movie Rosenkonig reminds me of Rosenkavalier.

    It's in French, I think, so it cannot be an original version of an Italian or Strauss opera. It sounds too "modern" for Spontini but I also don't know what it is.

    It is the aria ‘Depuis Le Jour’ from Gustave Charpentier’s opera, Louise (Act 3).

    As sung by Frau Schwarzkopf! From the album Rare Recordings 1946 - 1954.
