Alexandre Desplat is such a genious! This song is in waltz time and it has this toy-like sound that makes me imagine an old circus or a fair. It’s monumental and at the same time intimate. It opens with the sweet sound of the celeste, it is followed by hooting flutes, dreamy strings and a triangle. Then it develops when the guitar, the bassoon and the strings sound more prominently. Then, after a light intermission the waltz comes back completely performed by strings to surrender to the sound of various solo instruments.
